East Bay Bridge and Bridgecourt Emeryville/Oakland | California

In 1976, after closing its rail yard, the City of Emeryville realized it had a wealth of redevelopment opportunities. Catellus’ 50-acre development of the East Bay Bridge retail district and Bridgecourt apartments helped the city achieve its revitalization goals. The project has 453,500 square feet of retail space within nine buildings. Large tenants include Target, The Home Depot, Pacific Sales, OfficeMax, Sports Authority and Michael’s. The retail project alone generates about $3 million in annual sales and property taxes for the cities of Emeryville and Oakland.
