He left a message on his telephone to tell well-wishers that the church was “at capacity.” He said he was also overwhelmed by offers of practical assistance.The fire in Grenfell Tower in North Kensington, in the west of the capital, is believed to have started in the early hours of the morning.It spread rapidly because it ignited the flammable cladding that encased the tower block, and many trapped tenants jumped from the building to escape the flames and smoke.About 80 people are being treated in hospital and about 17 of them are described as being in “critical” condition.

One block uphill on Howe Street there’s a batch of 10 single-family homes, a development called Oakmont. Each is distinct, bearing the name of an older East Bay community of note, such as Elmwood or Kensington.“We just want to build beautiful houses, detail them appropriately, and make them feel like they belong in the neighborhood,” said developer Tom Anthony, who has finished four and will roll out the rest this summer. Photo: Michael Macor, The Chronicle New construction of mock-historic homes along the 4400 block of Howe St. in Oakland, Ca. on Monday February 27, 2017. The structures are designed by John Newton. Anthony and interior designer Allison Hatcher then figure out theme-appropriate interior touches, such as the Craftsman tile fireplace for the Elmwood.“We search our memory banks and discuss what goes with these types of houses,” said Anthony, who’s also a longtime East Bay real estate broker. Not that there aren’t contemporary features, such as electric chargers in the garages. There’s also not much green space — Anthony was able to turn the five larger parcels into 10 smaller ones, which Oakland allows in residential districts, and then squeezed in steep houses that average 2,500 square feet.Anthony was the first buyer of the parcels in the unusual sale, which involves land that the owners of Chapel of the Chimes had purchased decades earlier. One held a headstone shop, another a motorcycle club for police officers. The rest were dotted mostly with small houses rented out as apartments, often to workers at the cemetery or the chapel.With time, the chapel was purchased by a national operator. In 2010 the properties were part of a larger corporate transaction, and in 2011 they were put on the market.Not great timing, given the recession.It was 2014 before Anthony bought his batch. By then the local economy was in high gear, and the Piedmont Avenue parcels soon changed hands as well.If this swatch of Oakland had a higher visibility, a single developer might have swooped in to buy the entire package, which covered several acres. Another city might have stepped in and reviewed the projects as a group, with careful calibration from lot to lot.Instead, each proceeded on its own, reviewed by whoever was assigned the case file. Every project fits within the basic zoning envelope. That’s why the three Piedmont projects are all the exact same height. I’ll let you choose favorites. For me, the unapol...
