The Tapscott building in Oakland, California is located in the rapidly redeveloping Uptown neighborhood. The building sits at the corner of 19th Street and Broadway, with easy access to BART, AC Transit stations and major highways, making it attractive to commuters.
Tapscott was originally built in the 1920s as an office and retail building. It has had several uses in its lifetime, from retail, to theater, to office space, and even a morgue. The most recent owner, Kaiser Permanente, used the building as office space. Upon purchase of the building, Rabin began entitlement and construction processes to renovate the existing structure and add a residential tower to the site.
Tapscott’s eye-catching Beaux Arts exterior will be restored during the renovation process to revive the building’s character. Existing interior spaces will be removed to create an open canvas for incoming tenants. These spaces will be equipped with new utility systems and HVAC, creating a comfortable workspace. When completed in early 2020, Tapscott will have nearly 5,000 square feet of Broadway-facing retail and over 34,000 square feet of creative office space. A premium, 5,000 square foot penthouse office space will be added to the rooftop, along with a community terrace.
