Lakefront TIF

Designation: 2002    Expiration: 2026

The Lakefront TIF district is characterized by a pair of public buildings, a public park and vacant land that was occupied by three public housing high-rises until 1998. Located entirely with the Oakland community, the 31-acre district was designated to foster the development of high-quality, mixed-income housing units and related public right-of-way improvements. New residential development is intended to provide mixed-density structures that include units for market rate, affordable, low- and very-low income households, and for-sale units at market rate and affordable prices. Funds are targeted for site assembly efforts, infrastructure improvements, open space enhancements, off-street parking, and efforts that encourage safe and convenient transportation routes and access. Additional funds are intended to support job training and day care services within the district.
