  Port of Oakland - Real Estate
The plan proposes the preservation of industrial area, which are necessary to support Oakland's port, as well as its role in food processing, manufacturing, and distribution.
The plan calls for the creation of a continuous landscaped recreational parkway, accommodating pedestrians and bicycles as well as transit and vehicular access along the entire five-and-a-half-mile length of waterfront, from 66th Avenue to the Jack London District.
This parkway will knit together the diverse parts of the Estuary shoreline, contributing to the identity of Oakland as a waterfront city and to a sense of orientation within the district.

 Oakland's Parkway Renaissance / Site of quake-toppled freeway viewed as path to redevelopment
OAKLAND -- A forested boulevard is replacing the scar where the Cypress Freeway collapsed in the 1989 earthquake, erasing a symbol of destruction and bad planning in West Oakland as hard-luck neighborhoods along the way buzz with land deals.
Work on the boulevard is scheduled to be finished by the end of next year or early 2002, when 1920s-style street lamps, benches, fountains, bike and walking trails and a welcome-to-Oakland arch will transform what is now a strip of pipe-fabrication barns and warehouses.
The parkway is a sign of new economic life in an area that has been one of the Bay Area's poorest for more than 30 years.
