Creating drop-in collaboration space and street level activation for sci-tech tower

3440 Forbes is a 13-story building in the proposed Oakland Innovation District.

Strada is managing the public engagement and zoning approvals for the building, which will feature nine stories of lab and office space, first-floor retail, and three floors of parking. The first floor will provide additional public space along the Forbes Avenue sidewalk, creating spillover room for District Hall, a signature space for the entire district.

District Hall, programmed by a nonprofit organization, will offer meeting, event, and drop-in innovation space, as well as a food and beverage component open to the public. The project is currently in Schematic Design.
