Latham Square - About Us


Latham Square is one of the most prominent and architecturally important intersections in the City of Oakland, with several unique features including:

-it's location at the intersection of two of the most significant streets in Oakland (Telegraph Avenue and Broadway);
-it's function as a gateway to the emerging Uptown neighborhood and entertainment district;
-it's position between the Rotunda and Cathedral Buildings, two of the best local examples of early 20th century architecture.

Despite this prime location, Latham Square is currently dominated by automobile traffic due to the need to serve trips from both Broadway and Telegraph Avenue, and the awkward angle of the intersection.
