On September 19, 2022, Hearing Officer Lambert of Oakland’s Rent Adjustment Program court will hear the landlord’s petition for certificate of exemption from rent control for the Vulcan Lofts, a long standing live/work, residential artist community on San Leandro St. This is the continuation of a hearing that has been in progress since 2018 when the tenants filed “Rent Adjustment Petitions” and formed a tenants union.

The hearing is open to the public. Zoom info below.

The building manager for the Vulcan Lofts is Madison Park Financial, owned by John Protopappass who also owns the Vulcan Lofts.
