Antioch Court Renovation

Antioch Court Renovation for a Safer and Vibrant Community Space



In 2011, the Montclair Village Association (MVA) launched a campaign to rebuild Montclair’s beloved Antioch Court to address pedestrian and transportation safety concerns. At that time, the Antioch Court streetscape was dilapidated and structurally challenged. Increasing the safety and accessibility of Antioch Court was aimed at helping make an expanded plaza of Montclair a public destination, showcase venue, and community event space, envisaging it as a popular haven featuring locally owned shops, art galleries, restaurants, cafes, and boutiques.

Councilmember Sheng Thao successfully advocated for $480,000 to be allocated to the capital improvement project during the 2019-2021 budget process.

“Revitalizing Antioch Court will create accessibility for all Oaklanders, creating a space where we can build community and celebrate culture and art. The space will also be an asset for our young people throughout the City of Oakland.”

- Councilmember Sheng Thao


The Montclair Village Association has raised $619,000 of the $750,000 needed to fund a new Village Plaza.

As of 5/2/2024, the project is 100% complete.
