By Kimberly Veklerov - Monday Jul 10, 2017
Oakland’s new police chief confirmed Monday that she was among the more than 700 residents displaced early Friday by a fire that tore through a seven-story housing and retail project under construction.Chief Anne Kirkpatrick and her neighbors were evacuated in the predawn hours due to fears that a towering construction crane burned in the inferno might collapse and crash into an adjacent apartment complex, or that flames would spread to surrounding structures.The fire at the unfinished Alta Waverly mixed-use building at 23rd and Valdez streets happened within weeks of an arson attack that destroyed a similar construction project on the Oakland-Emeryville border.

- Couple rescues charming historic Oakland Craftsman
By Jordan Guinn - Friday Jul 28, 2017
A crumbling foundation was just what an Oakland couple needed when they were ready to buy a home. The historic home at 990 Vermont St. in Oakland held plenty of charm inside, but its base needed work and that appeared to scare off many of potential buyers. Enter Jack Harrington, a contractor in concrete construction, and his wife, Bela. Together, they rehabbed the home Oakland architect Leo L. Nichols designed. “We’d never worked like this in our own house, but I have some experience,” Jack Harrington said. “We were able to dig out the crawl space and add a basement level with an 8-foot ceiling.

- Investigators cannot determine cause in Oakland construction fire
By Kimberly Veklerov - Friday Aug 11, 2017
The cause of a fire that demolished an under-construction complex in Oakland last month cannot be determined, federal investigators said Friday, leaving open the question at the center of a battle over development and displacement in the city.“People were concerned, ‘Was this a pattern?’” said Councilwoman Lynette Gibson McElhaney, who represents the area that includes Auto Row, the site of the seven-story Alta Waverly mixed-use building on Valdez Street that was destroyed.“While the investigation has reached a point where an ‘undetermined’ finding is appropriate, investigators will continue to consider any new evidence or information provided by witnesses or community members,” the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives said in a statement.Twenty-eight people living in two adjacent buildings, including a couple with a 2-year-old child, haven’t been able to get back into their homes since the fire, according to Michele Byrd, the city’s director of Housing and Community Development.In the other, investigators checking to make sure the units were safe for re-entry found unrelated code violations, said city spokesman Sean Maher.The building that was going to comprise nearly 200 housing units and 31,000 square feet of retail space was more than halfway done at the time of the fire.Soon after the fire, amid concern that builders would halt plans in Oakland, Mayor Libby Schaaf reached out to developers to assure them that the city would work with them to shore up safety measures at their project sites, said Darin Ranelletti, interim director of Oakland’s Planning and Building Department.[...] developers throughout the city have increased lighting at construction sites, added surveillance cameras and taken other steps to secure perimeters, Ranelletti said.
