Walking Tour: Wholesale Produce Market and Waterfront Warehouse District

  • 3rd Street and Franklin Street Oakland, CA (map)

Explore two of Oakland’s most fragile, endangered historic districts, where early 20th century wholesale, industrial, shipping and warehousing activities are being replaced by office space, residences, and lofts. Since 2000, 850 new condos and 700 apartments have been built. An additional 986 dwelling units have been approved or are currently under construction. The Waterfront Warehouse district boasts the country’s finest collection of sidewalk trash receptacles.

Leader: Gary Knecht
