Our Vision

District Works staff have decades of experience managing multiple improvement districts and public realm projects.

It is our aim to work in partnership with your team and local stakeholders to realize your vision in a timely manner and within the established budget. From the inception of our company we knew that our success would be defined by the team we hire and the energy and attitude they bring to each project.

We Are Your District at Work!

As placemaking leaders with decades of industry experience, we have created synergy between the tactical services we provide and our placemaking consultation.

Our approach to serving the unique needs of place management organizations is a critical missing link within the industry as a whole.

Ambassador Programs

We currently contract with BART for a dedicated Restroom and Concourse attendant program. We contract with the City of Oakland to manage their Excess Litter Fee, providing dedicated cleaning services throughout Oakland. We contract with several CBDs and property owners providing Greening and Beautification services including Uptown Downtown Oakland, SOMA West CBD, Rubicon Point Partners, and Ocean Ave Association CBD. We provide project service support to Union Square Alliance and Temescal CBDs typically involving forklifts, scissor lifts, and street closure support. We are also the only authorized service provider for Big Belly solar powered trash containers throughout the entire Bay Area.

Our Values

District Works DEI Statement

District Works, as an organization, exemplifies the version of community we endeavor to provide through our place making strategies. This devotion drives us to be intentional and thoughtful in cultivating a diverse, equitable and inclusive company where all members, regardless of their background thrive and feel that they belong. Our goal is for our team to embody a celebratory energy that attracts and engages every community member we encounter.

Local Impact

In a tangible sense, how an organization spends its money, where it spends its money, and the vendors it chooses to give its money to, says a lot about the values of the organization. District Works is homegrown and Town-bred right down to the bones of everything we do. Ownership and management live in Oakland and throughout the Bay Area. On any given day, ownership, management, and staff all converge at our headquarters in the heart of downtown Oakland. We are your local partners, who live, walk, and work in the streets of the Bay Area on a daily basis. Because our lives and roots are in Oakland and the Bay Area, we are constantly thinking about our community, the people who live here, and how we can improve the quality of life in the districts. We are a company dedicated to serving our community and we attract people who feel the same.

Oakland Farmers Market

As a company, we put our money where our values are everyday, and have the best team of local suppliers, designers, banks, partners and consultants on board to support this project.
