Menlo Park, California–based real estate developer Lane Partners and the Strategic Urban Development Alliance LLC (SUDA) have introduced a new project for Oakland known as Eastline, spanning 1.3 million square feet. The city approvals process has already been initiated and construction is slated to begin in 2018.

Led by Gensler, the massive project would be situated a block north of Uptown Station, the site of a former Sears that is now under construction to host a new headquarters for Uber with interiors from San Francisco–based Assembly Design Studio.

Eastline’s three-acre design entails more than 800,000 square feet of offices and commercial space, 50,000 square feet of retail, 18,000 square feet dedicated to community arts programming, and 31,000 feet of open space. Eastline will also house 388 residential units. Developers are planning to set aside half of the available space for Oakland-based businesses with a quarter accommodating large and small companies each, respectively.
