• The Municipal Boathouse is a John Galen Howard designed building on the shore of Lake Merritt. The building was originally designed over 100 years ago as a high pressure salt water pumping station and a municipal boathouse for the City of Oakland. As part of the Lake Merritt Master Plan, murakami/Nelson recommended renovating the building and reintroducing its historic activities. The design for the rehabilitation and adaptive re-use of the Municipal Boathouse conforms to the Secretary of the Interior’s Standards for Historic Rehabilitation and is LEED Gold certified.
