Nestled at the base of Oakland's southern foothills, the Oak Knoll community is the culmination of a collaborative effort on the part of the City of Oakland, residents and developer SunCal to reinvigorate and revitalize one of the most significant properties in the Bay Area.
When completed, the Oak Knoll community will be home to charming neighborhoods, engaging open spaces and inviting public parks, giving residents the chance to enjoy the Oakland Hills and all this special place has to offer. From access to the East Bay Regional Park System to integrated community focused trails, Oak Knoll will provide its residents and the public with walkable trails that will flank a revived creek, and will welcome families, runners, cyclists, hikers, dog walkers and naturalists. With the community situated in Oakland's southern foothills, abundant pathways and open space will connect family oriented neighborhoods enclaves with a community focused life-style center including amenities such as shops, restaurants and public meeting spaces. With the feel and character of neighborhoods such as Piedmont, Montclair and Claremont, Oak Knoll will be a vibrant community with a laid-back feel and small town atmosphere.
With the development of 918 new homes surrounded by parks and opens space, the planning and design of Oak Knoll draws its inspiration from the surrounding high-quality residential communities designed by renowned historic figures such as Julia Morgan, Bernard Maybeck, Walter Ratcliff, Frederick Law Olmsted, and the partnership of Mason McDuffie. Along with prominent housing and business development, the community will provide striking views of the surrounding foothills and the Bay Area's breathtaking vistas. By blending history with innovation, Oak Knoll will provide a unique setting for the growth of livable, sustainable, and attractive neighborhoods.
