List of tallest buildings in Oakland
The U.S. city of Oakland, California is the site of more than 40 high-rises, the majority of which are located in its downtown district. In the city, there are 21 buildings taller than 200 feet (61 m). The tallest building is the 28-story Ordway Building, which rises 404 feet (123 m).
The history of high-rises in Oakland began with the completion of the nine-story Bank of America Building in 1907. A nine-story section was later added to the same building. It remained the tallest building in the city until 1914, when the Oakland City Hall, at 320 feet (98 m), became the tallest. At the time it was built, the City Hall was the first high-rise government building in the United States and the tallest building west of the Mississippi River. The 390 feet (119 m) Kaiser Center surpassed the height of the City Hall in 1960, and was the tallest building for a decade. In 1989, Ordway Building became the tallest building in the city.
As of November 2009, Oakland is the site of many high-rise proposals. The largest high-rise development in the city is the proposed 715 feet (218 m) Encinal Tower. If built, the tower would become the first building in Oakland to pass the 500-foot (150 m) threshold, far surpassing Ordway Building as the tallest in the city. It would be the third-tallest in the San Francisco Bay Area, after 555 California Street and the Transamerica Pyramid, both of which are located in San Francisco.
