Office High-Rise Set to Break Ground in Uptown Oakland Next Year


Telegraph Tower, a fully-entitled, next generation office development in the heart of the Oakland’s Uptown neighborhood, is slated to break ground in mid-2020. The project, a development of TMG Partners, is located at 2200 Telegraph Ave, which is at the corner with West Grand Ave.

The 875k sf building, designed by Solomon Cordwell Buenz Architects, offers up to 37k sf floorplates with high ceilings and 11 ½ foot tall vision glass throughout. Larger interconnected floors with soaring ceilings and expansive views are favored by companies seeking to encourage greater employee interaction and improved health and productivity. Telegraph Tower features three outdoor terraces and 33 balconies totaling 30k sf of outdoor space highlighted by an expansive 9.2k sf rooftop terrace and large private outdoor terraces on the sixth and eighteenth floors.

Amenities planned for the 28-story building include a 10k sf fitness/wellness center, a community theatre, street-level retail, café and art space, no-transfer “smart” elevators, gas service for tenant kitchens and fire pits on the outdoor terraces, ample bike parking and drop off locations, and state of the art building communication and resiliency systems.

Telegraph Tower is a block from Oakland’s AC Transit’s Uptown Transit Center and 19th Street BART station with 12-minute service to San Francisco and the greater East Bay. The building will directly connect employers to a talented workforce that wants easier commute options, varied and more affordable housing, and a culturally rich and diverse community. Within a half mile radius of Telegraph Tower, employees can access 9,000 new housing units under-construction; walk to bars, restaurants and visual arts galleries; enjoy dozens of live performances and music venues; and stroll farmers markets, street fairs, parks and lakes – all while enjoying sunshine year-round.

“Telegraph Tower leads the next generation of office buildings for Oakland with its emphasis on expansive, open floorplates, some of the highest ceilings of any Bay Area office building, and a large proportion of outdoor space,” said Michael Covarrubias, Chairman and CEO of TMG Partners. “We took every lesson we have learned about what companies want today and designed Telegraph Tower as a workplace environment that is entirely focused on delivering the ‘right’ employee experience.”

Christopher T. Roeder of JLL and J.D. Lumpkin of Cushman & Wakefield are handling the leasing of Telegraph Tower.
