The developer of an office and hotel complex that's to be part of the Oakland Portal Project today was granted a postponement of a scheduled hearing before the city Planning Commission.
The hearing has been tentatively rescheduled for 2 p.m. April 2 in the first floor conference room at 200 Ross St.
LW Molnar Associates expects to develop land between Forbes and Fifth Avenues just south of Robinson Street into three high-rise office buildings with a hotel. The buildings as proposed include one at 13 stories and two at eight stories.
Residents of West Oakland met with the developer's representatives Monday to discuss their concerns about the buildings' height and an increased volume of traffic that could result from the new development.
Robinson Street is used by hundreds of drivers each day, many of whom work at UPMC, the University of Pittsburgh and Carlow University.
