Red Flag Warning for parts of the East Bay starting 11PM Tuesday 8/17 night and lasting until Wednesday 8/18 at 3PM.

Gateway Industrial District (portion of former Oakland Army Base)

The Gateway Industrial District is located adjacent to the Port of Oakland and the community of West Oakland. The 160-acre District is designed to support the City’s industrial needs and the movement of goods by way of the seaport, railroad and roadway networks while providing jobs and reducing air pollution emissions. The District was formerly part of the Oakland Army Base, which was commissioned in 1942 and closed 1999. To enable redevelopment, the City completed a major public infrastructure project in 2019, installing brand new roads and utilities, including bike paths and Bay Trail connections. Today, the District features new state-of-the-art warehouse and distribution facilities.

The District is adjacent to the Port of Oakland; more information on developments at the Port can be found here.

Related Plans

The redevelopment of the Gateway Industrial District is guided by the Base Reuse Plan and Oakland Army Base Redevelopment Plan.

Environmental Documents

Redevelopment of the Gateway Industrial District was analyzed under the California Environmental Quality Act in 2002 by the Oakland Army Base Area Redevelopment Plan Environmental Impact Report, followed by an Addendum in 2012. The environmental documents and current Standard Conditions of Approval and Mitigation Monitoring and Reporting Plan are found here.

Air Quality Plans

Reducing and eliminating diesel trucks and equipment and thereby improving air quality is a goal of the redevelopment of the former Oakland Army Base. Therefore, projects proposed on parcels within the Gateway Industrial District on the former Army Base all benefit from a truck diesel reduction program that requires air quality plans for construction and for operation. These air quality plans provide a road map for implementing diesel emission reduction measures, are required by all developers in the Gateway Industrial District and become part of their tenant agreements.

Additionally, please see the air quality monitoring data and reports associated with the Public Improvements construction and the Prologis vertical construction at the following link: Link to the latest Northgate Air Quality Monitoring Report (Jan. 2020 to Mar. 2021).

Truck Management Plan

Reducing truck impacts on the local streets in West Oakland is also a goal of the redevelopment of the former Oakland Army Base. The West Oakland Truck Management Plan is an action-based plan designed to reduce the effects of transport trucks on local streets in West Oakland.

Job Resources and Oversight

Providing local jobs is a key goal of the redevelopment of the former Oakland Army Base. Development on the City's Gateway Industrial District is subject to Construction and Operations Jobs Policies. The West Oakland Jobs Resources Center provides a location for developers and operators to seek local job applicants. The Oversight Commission is tasked with overseeing compliance with the Jobs Policies.
