LEED Gold 2017

The Wakefield Building is a multi-tenant office building located in the downtown area of Oakland, California. The 61,347 square foot, 9 story high-rise was constructed in 1924 and retains its original brick facade. Original interior elements that survived the Loma Pieta earthquake, including wooden storefronts and a neo-Gothic lobby, have been preserved as well.

Located in the historic Lake Merritt District, the Wakefield Building sits along the west shore of the lake, near the Lake Merritt BART Station and various AC Transit bus stops. As a result, 77 percent of regular trips to the building are made via alternative transportation. Kaiser Center achieved an Energy Star certification in 2016 and building management continues seeking innovative strategies for improving its energy efficiency.
