The Jack London Square project in Oakland, California, includes offices, residences, shops, a supermarket, a 250-room hotel with conference space, a 1,700-seat theater, and more than 1,200 new parking spaces. Other amenities include open spaces and a pedestrian walkway along the Oakland-Alameda Estuary, which connects to San Francisco Bay approximately four miles to the west. This waterfront redevelopment project revitalizes a six-block area by adding more than a million new square feet of space for business, entertainment, and living in a historic urban waterfront setting.

ESA prepared the EIR for this large mixed-use redevelopment project, analyzing air quality, noise, traffic and parking, and impacts to a historic local saloon. The complex nature of the multi-phased project required clear descriptions and analysis of potential impacts at nine development sites. ESA's analysis provided the foundation for a range of possible future development scenarios, a major goal of the developer. ESA provided quick response and additional analyses as the project was modified throughout the process and during the City's review and decision making process. The final EIR incorporated further project modifications, and no supplemental environmental analysis was required.

ESA prepared environmental documentation for a major waterfront downtown redevelopment project in the heart of Oakland's downtown.
