Loft/Live Work. In the Jack London Waterfront/Oakland Warehouse District, with its restaurants, shopping, open air markets, AMTRAK train station, ferry services to San Francisco and close proximity to BART stations, is a commuter's dream. Loft #209 is located in the former Western States Grocery Building, designed and constructed by well-known architects Couchot, Rosenwalk and Roeth (Oakland Tribune Building) in 1926. The building retains its original "warehouse feel" while hosting amenities such as the popular Chop Bar restaurant on its street level.
Current owners have taken the raw space (public records show 1,480 square feet) and re-imagined "SOHO living" for this one-of-a-kind loft. Soaring 13' ceilings of exposed cement and pour mushroom columns provide the backdrop to gallery-sized walls for art and private collections. Expansive remodeling by owners reconfigured the kitchen into entertainment central for large gatherings or intimate dinners. The bathroom is now the favorite stay-at-home spa feature of the home. Just off the hallway is an integrated in-unit washer/dryer. The lofted bedroom is a private retreat.
Located in the heart of "Oakland Cool", Loft #209 in Jack London Square offers the possibility of a car-free living lifestyle that is closer to San Francisco than San Francisco.
