Many building names around Oakland are after famous people, for example the Lionel J. Wilson Building is of course named after former judge and Oakland mayor, Lionel J. Wilson. But more fun are some of the other building names, like the numerous mid-sized apartment buildings around Lake Merritt that have names. Inspired by this post on spur.org, this page was started as a place to collect some of them.
