The Neighborhood


The best of Oakland's energy and coastal splendors combine at Brooklyn Basin, with public Wi-Fi, sundrenched esplanades, parks, restaurants, retail and more.


Strolls along the waterfront, maritime recreation and spectacular views will reconnect Oakland to its heritage as a city on the Bay.


Brooklyn Basin will host a robust schedule of cultural and recreational activities to bring this new community together. Highlights will include the restored Aquatic Center at Estuary Park, an exhibition space for maritime heritage with boating opportunities, and a destination-worthy roster of cafes, shops and galleries at Clinton Basin.

“We’re creating a neighborhood that’s an extension of the city, juxtaposing the amenity value of the Bay with urban development and public accessibility.”

Boris Dramov Designer, Roma Group

Environmental & Economic Sustainability

Committed to creating an environmentally and economically sustainable neighborhood, the development will create 10,000 jobs, providing significant stimulus to Oakland’s economy. Brooklyn Basin will also be the first project in the world to be certified LEED ND 4.0. Notable among the environmental benefits of the project are a reduction of water usage through the use of recycled water piping, connectivity to various modes of transit and proximity to walkable streets, as well as ecological and water body conservation.

Green Spaces

Brooklyn Basin's coastal character will come alive with 30 acres of public parks lining the waterfront. Along with the revival of Estuary Park, five new parks will each have their own distinct features and water views, offering playgrounds and ample green space, as well as areas for open-air markets, concerts and festivals.


Waterfront access is at the heart of Brooklyn Basin’s design. Parks along the Estuary will be linked by a pedestrian and bike path system that connects Jack London Square with Oakland’s eastern waterfront. Brooklyn Basin will also eventually connect to Lake Merritt via bike, transit and pedestrian pathways. The new neighborhood marina will have space for over 200 slips, accommodating everything from yachts and sailboats to kayaks.

Retail & Restaurants

Inviting shopping experiences will be a defining aspect of the laid-back lifestyle found here. An assortment of restaurants, galleries and specialty purveyors will promote lively street energy and establish the area as a popular new Oakland destination. Brooklyn Basin Way will offer over 75,000 square feet of storefronts, while Clinton Basin promises 100,000 square feet of waterfront retail space.

Conveniently located at the heart of the Bay Area, Brooklyn Basin is close in proximity to freeways, BART, ferries, Amtrak and the Oakland International Airport, making local as well as international travel wonderfully accessible. A shuttle service will also be provided to BART, Jack London Square and the Uptown entertainment district, strengthening the connection between this new neighborhood and the rest of the city.
