Oakland's Alta Waverly to rebuild, open early 2019 after fire

- Oakland’s Alta Waverly fire remains under investigation, but no formal report has been released. Anderson Construction, the company working on the project, said on Monday the site has been returned to them and that the city has asked them to clean it.

A massive 4-alarm fire burned the mixed-use construction site at 2302 Valdez Street near Grand Avenue on July 7, temporarily displacing as many as 700 people at its peak.

Last week the ATF completed their field investigation at the site of the fire.

In a news release, Anderson Construction, the company hired by Wood Partners for the project, said they hired a subcontractor to clean the site over the next few months.

Valdez Street has been closed by the city in addition to 23rd Street, which has been closed due to falling broken windows on 180 Grand Ave. 

The construction company has hired additional security guards to keep people and property safe, they said.

The $35 million project was destroyed in the blaze, but the new projected completion date is sometime in early 2019.
