Lakeside Apartments District, Oakland, California

The '''Lakeside Apartments District''' neighborhood, also known as '''The Gold Coast''', and simply as '''The Lakeside''', is one of Oakland, California's (Oakland, California) historic residential neighborhoods between its Downtown (Downtown Oakland) district and Lake Merritt. In the context of a Cultural Heritage Survey, the City of Oakland officially named most of the blocks of the neighborhood "The Lakeside Apartments District," and designated it as a local historic district (Registered Historic District#Local historic districts) with architecturally significant historic places, http: www.oakland-lana.org history historic_dist.php and Areas of Primary Importance (APIs). The greater neighborhood includes the interior blocks officially designated as a local historic district (Registered Historic District#Local historic districts) and the 'Gold Coast' peripheral areas along Lakeside Drive, 20th Street, and the west edge of Lake Merritt, areas closer to 14th Street and the Civic Center district, and blocks adjacent to downtown along Harrison Street.

The district is characterized by a predominance of rent-stabilized (rent control) apartments, mixed-use buildings, and a long history of regional mass transit connections serving its central location. In recent years, mid-rise, mixed-use, market rate, and affordable rental housing (affordable housing) has been planned (urban planning), proposed, approved, constructed, and inhabited. At the present, other developers have proposed market-rate condominium skyscrapers and other high-rise towers which have idled in various stages of the planning process. From 2007 to 2009, the Oakland Planning Commission revised zoning and building height regulations for the neighborhood.
