LMC has announced the topping out of 17th and Broadway, a mixed-use high-rise apartment community in Downtown Oakland, Calif.
The topping out symbolizes a milestone in the construction process for the 34-story community, which consists of 254 luxury apartment homes and 4,800 square feet of ground-floor retail space. As LMC’s first development in the Oakland market, 17th and Broadway will offer fully integrated smart homes with superior Wi-Fi coverage and Lutron STLT home programming for temperature control and electronic roller shades. First move-ins are anticipated for June 2019.
“Downtown Oakland has an artistic and energetic atmosphere, and we are thrilled to join the area and offer a living experience that complements the surroundings,” said JJ Abraham, division president of California for LMC. “The topping out brings us one step closer to welcoming our initial resident base, which will undoubtedly take advantage of our extensive array of amenities, creative co-working spaces and enjoy a fully integrated smart home experience.”
Situated at 447 17th Street, 17th and Broadway will include a large public art feature, constructed by local Oakland artist David Huffman.
