40th and Telegraph 3931 Telegraph Avenue, Oakland, California 94609

Commercial: Around the corner from BART, this property was used many years ago for a restaurant and bakery. As many of the codes have changed, it could be a challenge to re-open it as a restaurant, but it is an ideal spot for a produce store, notions store, or some other kind of retail business that depends on foot traffic. Several hundred people pass by every morning and every evening on their way to BART, and with the right combination of ingredients, this could be an ideal spot for people to stop by.
