Oakland’s Chinatown is over 100 years old and was greatly impacted by the civil unrest demonstrations in the summer of 2020 as well as random violent attacks on its citizens throughout 2020 and early 2021. The over 1,000 property owners in Chinatown came together to create and manage a 1.2 million dollars district that will stress security, beautification, branding and preparing Chinatown for some large new developments that will be occurring in the next few years around the BART station at Lake Merritt. New City America is now helping Chinatown’s CBD leaders form a new management corporation as well as transferring their funds from the City.
Bankers Hill is enjoying the most vertical residential development of any community in San Diego and it is surrounded by Balboa Park to the east, Little Italy to the west, Downtown San Diego to the south and Hillcrest, the large LGBT district to the north. It is anticipated that the new Bankers Hill CBD will be voted on by property owners in the Spring of 2022.
