CCA's ever-popular Pre-College Program returns to the Oakland campus June 27–July 22, 2016. High school students will immerse themselves in art, architecture, design, or creative writing while earning three college credits.
Approximately 250 students attend each summer, many of them from around the country or abroad; 160 of these students reside in CCA housing.
SRM Development has plans to build a multi-family complex on the south side of 51st and Broadway near the border of the Temescal and Rockridge neighborhoods. Temescal Apartments, a 130-unit proposed project, will include 8,000 square feet of retail space and some sweet amenities, such as a rooftop courtyard, theater, fitness facility, and a bike repair/maintenance shop that would be open to the public.
The L-shaped building would take up the entire portion of Broadway and curve around the corner and up 49th Street, against an existing home. The five-story section overlooking Broadway will terrace down to four stories on 49th Street, while the townhouses on the other side will only be two stories.
Before groundbreaking can happen, the developer must first close the deal on the property and submit building permits to the city of Oakland.
CCA students, staff, and faculty will surely welcome the addition of a hardware store in Rockridge. Cole Hardware is a family-owned local business with four locations in San Francisco. The new store will be located at 5533 College Avenue. They will be holding a Rockridge job fair at the new location October 17 from 2 to 6 pm. Opening date for the store is January 1, 2015. Read more about it in the Rockridge News.
Recently a private equity firm took over the East Bay grocery chain Safeway.
