Developer Phil Tagami will present an unsolicited offer to the Port of Oakland next week to create a master plan for the entire Oakland Army Base.

The Army Base — a huge parcel of land where interstates 80 and 880 intersect at the base of the Bay Bridge — has the potential to play a key role in the region’s economic growth in the coming years.

Tagami’s bid to be a master developer for the entire site is connected to his proposal to build an office tower and logistics venter on just one part of the army base, a city-controlled 108-acre parcel.

Tagami’s firm, California Capital Group, and its partner, AMB Property Corp., are one of four finalists to bid for the rights to develop the city-owned site. The Port owns a separate 157-acre parcel that’s part of the base and is also slotted for redevelopment.
