Oakland to Develop Logistics Complex

By Karen Robes Meeks

This fall, the Port of Oakland will start construction on its highly anticipated Seaport Logistics Complex.

“This is our future,” said Port of Oakland Maritime Director John Driscoll. “The Seaport Logistics Complex will give freight shippers the opportunity to manage international supply chains right next door to the rail yards and marine terminals where their cargo is transported.”

The complex, which already features a $100 million rail yard that opened in 2016, will eventually house multiple buildings for warehousing or distribution. The campus will include CenterPoint Properties’ 440,000-square-foot CenterPoint Landing, a $52 million facility that is expected to open by summer 2020 at Maritime and 14th Street.
