Brooklyn Basin

Brooklyn Basin Brooklyn Basin will be a new neighborhood revitalizing Oakland's waterfront with 32 acres of new parks, trails, and views of San Francisco Bay.

Brooklyn Basin is an infill waterfront revitalization project along the Oakland Estuary. Previously, the site was a blighted industrial property that was closed to the public. In 2005, Signature Development Group envisioned a plan to transform the area into a world class park to be enjoyed by the residents and visitors to the Bay Area, as well as add thousands of market and affordable rate residences to a severely under-supplied market. The project is projected to generate over 10,000 jobs and millions in annual tax revenue for the City of Oakland. Currently, Signature Development Group and Zarsion Holdings are working with the City of Oakland to remediate the property and build key infrastructure to the site.

Did you know? Brooklyn Basin is the first LEED ND, version 4.0 in the whole world! The entire project is LEED certified and individual buildings will be as well. In fact, we’ve also installed the capacity for recycled water, included native plant species and environmentally friendly materials in all of the parks, plus incorporated the use of water filtration that cleans water prior to going into the Bay.

How Rocky Road Ice Cream Got Its Start in Oakland | KQED

"Nearly a century has passed since Rocky Road was invented, but there’s still a dispute over just who thought up the recipe for Rocky Road ice cream: Fenton’s Creamery or Dreyer’s Grand Ice Cream. The one certain thing is that the flavor was invented in Oakland, California."

Rocky Road was America’s first blockbuster ice cream flavor after chocolate, vanilla and strawberry.

9th Avenue Terminal at Brooklyn Basin Update: Things are starting to come together with the new retail location. Our friends from #NRS sent us some great new fixtures for our NRS products. They also sent Will who came to our new shop set up the fixtures. Our current plan to launch the new shop is March 27th. If all goes as planned that said it is 3 months from the original launch at this point. Here is a little sneak preview of our work yesterday with NRS. #calkayak #9thavenueterminal
