Yikes.

The quality of the building and the amenities are top-notch, I will say. The appliances and flooring (carpet) were disappointing for a modern, luxury building. The units just felt bland. The windows are great, though.

Also, the neighborhood just isn't there yet. But then neither is SoMa, I suppose.

It's all relative. in San Francisco people are paying $4000 -$5000 for a one bedroom with a worse commute than taking 15 minute ride on Bart from the grand.
Even writing $5000 for a one bedroom seems insane.

Exactly, it is a "bargain" next to SF with a potentially better commute to the FIDI.

I used to rent the top corner unit across the street at Broadway grand. It was 1800 sq. Ft. Huge living room area with 90 degrees of all windows. 2 bed 2 bath that overlooked the bay bridge and downtown oakland. We were paying 1900 with parking this was in 2009. We moved in 2011 because they started selling again. I can't believe how much the Grand costs. That's insane.

That article is wrong. Two years ago when other posters on this site visited, JLS was a ghost town! This can't possibly be!

It's about f'n time.

This will be huge for Jack London. Much more important than all the "Plank" talk.

A lot of big projects in the pipeline/being completed in central Oakland the next 5-10 years. A decade from now, greater downtown (JLS, DTO, Chinatown, Uptown, Lakeside) will likely finally be the exciting, vibrant, dense, urban core the city desperately needs.

Not if the city keeps building horrifyingly terrible buildings like the one they plan for 1331 Harrison. Parking podiums absolutely destroy the feel of pedestrian environments - just look at Grand Avenue between Caltrans and The Grand. Parking podium hell.

(I'm not really disagreeing with you, the market will be great! I just wish the city would stop letting developers build cheap parking podium crap)
