Lake Park Apartments
1565 Madison st apartments is undergoing the dreaded process of gentrification. On 6/12/2014 This building was taken over by new owners , and new management. The new owner are the First Class Lodi.llc, and the new property management is The Apartment Group Inc. The intent was to meet the August 1st deadline where Oakland rent adjustment regulations change; these changes took some burden off the tenants financially, and allowed for more leverage.The transition of ownership and management has been been tumultuous, and chaotic. There has been a lack of respect for tenants and a disregard for what would be in the best interest of the tenants. There have been many incidence where tenants health and safety were jeopardized. With all of these incidence management and the owners have taken the position of denial of guilt , no surprise there.Many tenants, and tenant advocacy groups are fighting to prevent such practices from setting legal precedence in the city of Oakland. The primary goal of these investors is to maximize their profit margins, and see unrealized capital yields. Their priority is not aligned with improving the lives of tenants. The argument is they are apart of the community, and want to be apart of a great positive transformation in Oakland.If you are against this practice of economic displacement, please notify your friends and family, as well as your public officials that such practices will not be permitted. Many immigrants, seniors, disabled, and good hearted hard working people are looking at devastating changes in their life. Sadly the diversity of this area will quickly decline.

The Terrace Room At Lake Merritt Hotel
We were looking for a place for a baby shower. Just a brunch that would be memorable for our small group of moms. The staff of restaurant were very accommodating from the initial point of contact while trying to reserve for our grouo. The food was excellent. Great view makes this place one of a kind.
