Construction is underway in Oakland for a first-of-its-kind high rise apartment building that could be among the tallest beamless mass plywood panel structure in the world.

The 19-story, roughly 200 unit structure is going to be erected at 1510 Webster Street. A fifth of the units will be designated as affordable housing.

oWOW is developing, designing and constructing the development with assistance from DCI Engineers. The design began about a year-and-a-half ago. 

Rental units in the new 1510 Webster Street site were expected to be available early next year.
