It’s been over a decade since the City of Oakland saw even one high-rise built within the city’s downtown core which overlooks neighboring San Francisco.

With the huge growth of Oakland over the past few years, it’s no surprise to find that there’s not one, not two, but now eight planned high-rises to be constructed in, or near, the city’s downtown core.

That’s a total of 2,000 units planned for Oakland.

There’s no doubt that the area is growing at a rapid pace as near-downtown neighborhoods like Jack London Square and Lake Merritt are already starting to see a wave of San Francisco expats making the move from renting to owning a home in these booming neighborhoods.

So what does Oakland have coming down the pipe for high-rise developments?

  1. Check windows for drafts of air. A good tool is a lighter or candle; if the flame moves, more than likely you have a draft. Use caulk or weather stripping to seal drafts. 
  2. Put a rug or doormat just inside of your home. Wood floors, laminate flooring, and concrete floors are pretty popular here in North Texas so to prevent slipping and falling add a rug to wipe your feet.
  3. Make sure you change your ceiling fans turn in a clockwise motion. This takes the warm air from the ceiling and pushes it down, slightly cutting cost on your heating bill.
