Once the site of an Oakland roller derby team, rock concerts and community events, it has been closed since 2005. Kaiser Convention Center's fallen on hard times and the City of Oakland's taking the first baby steps to unload it. It was built before WWI and named after Henry Kaiser in 1984. Aside from the Oakland Skates, best known as a music venue with shows by the Grateful Dead and other illustrious rockers. Apparently lacking sufficient parking, public transit access and seismic upgrades, it may be sold to the Oakland Redevelopment Agency this year. [Oakland Local, image via The Jerry Site]
