In Oakland, two projects that might be below radar (although both have had public attention) are the new Duquesne Light Riazzi substation and the $7 million mixed-use development for Mike Wu at Craig and Winthrop. Burns & McDonnell is the turnkey engineer/CM for the Duquesne Light project, which is an 8,000 square foot (by four story) structure located on Boundary Street beneath the Schenley Park Bridge. No costs have been released but the project should be $5-10 million or more.
