Cushman & Wakefield has been retained by UrbanCore Development, LLC and National Real Estate Advisors, LLC (collectively, "Sponsor") to raise joint venture equity for the construction of LakeHouse (the "Property" or the "Project").
LakeHouse is a fully-entitled 270-unit Opportunity Zone development expected to break ground in July 2020. The Property is currently a ±0.92 acres unimproved parcel situated at Oakland’s renowned Lake Merritt, the city’s most popular public amenity. Sponsor has approvals to build a 26-story, class-A multifamily tower that will provide a fully amenitized living experience in a premier Oakland submarket that is geographically insulated from potential new competition.
Located within a half-mile of the Lake Merritt BART Station and less than one-mile from Downtown Oakland, LakeHouse benefits from its strategic access to the most innovative companies and highest paying jobs in the world. Median household incomes in Oakland are forecasted to grow 20% by 2024 while rental rates are projected to grow 17% during this same time. With its lakefront location and outstanding accessibility to leading employment hubs, LakeHouse provides the rare prospect of investing in a core-quality development with embedded market upside and Opportunity Zone tax benefits.
