SPUR’s first project in Oakland will focus on downtown, which is experiencing a renaissance with new housing, restaurants and bars, a rich arts scene and a decline in vacant office space. As it continues to evolve, how can we ensure that it serves everyone? Join us for a conversation about Oakland’s downtown and its future.
