Safeway at Rockridge gets Upgrade Go Ahead

The Safeway at College and Claremont is over 50 years old and needs an upgrade to better serve the community.  Last night the Oakland Planning Commission approved by a vote of 5-0 a plan that will create jobs, increase revenue to the city and offer more retail options for shoppers in Oakland.  The Oakland Metropolitan Chamber of Commerce supports the project and salutes Safeway for its exemplary corporate citizenship and the Planning Commission for approving this useful project.
In addition to creating a more modern store with more room to shop and a greater variety of offerings the plan offers other amenities.  Sidewalks are expanded, traffic flows are improved, public transportation options are made easier to utilize and parking is moved underground. Additional retail stores will be part of the plan that also includes a roof top terrace.  It’s a world class project and helps send the message that Oakland is great place to do business, a great place to shop and a great place to live. Well Done!
