Downtown Oakland: the 10K Report Card

Wednesday 5/30/07

Downtown Oakland--the 10K Report Card
Now that it has been about 8 years since former Mayor Jerry Brown put the 10K Housing Initiative forward – 10,000 new residents in downtown Oakland by encouraging 6,000 new market-rate housing units – it is time to look at the results and think about the possibilities to build from this initiative and continue the reinvigoration of downtown Oakland. The AIAEB Chapter and its Regional and Urban Design Forum are hosting a panel discussion to review and critique the results of the 10K initiative and talk about the future.

Moderated by SF Chronicle Columnist John King, this panel discussion will be a frank look at the 10K Housing Initiative begun by past-Mayor Jerry Brown. Panelists include Peter Waller, AIA of Pyatok Architects; Colland Jang, AIA past Oakland Planning Commissioner; Dan Parolek, AIA of Opticos Design; Kate O’Hara, Community Benefits Program Director, East Bay Alliance for Sustainable Economy; and Susan Friedland, Affordable Housing Associates.

Time: 5:30pm-8:00pm
Location: AIA East Bay Chapter Office, 1405 Clay Street, Oakland
Cost: $10 chapter members; $20 non-chapter members. Cost includes program and dinner.
This meeting open to all. RSVP's are mandatory.
