It has a deep farmhouse sink with gooseneck faucet, stainless steel Samsung dishwasher, stainless steel fridge, electric range with built-in overhead microwave, and plenty of cabinet and counterspace. The kitchen’s shape creates a semi-private bedroom nook at the rear of the unit, with a large armoire-style closet. The full bathroom is at the rear of the space, next to the bedroom nook. It is spacious, with a large vanity and shower over tub. The laundry nook is across from the bathroom, with a high efficiency washer/dryer combo.

You’re just 2 blocks from the Emeryville border for easy trips to Target, Home Depot, Nordstrom Rack, and all the other handy Emeryville retail spots. The central esplanade of Mandela Parkway, a main artery for jogging and biking, is 3 blocks west of the lofts. It leads directly to the West Oakland BART station, which is 1.5 miles away. Nearby are many West Oakland favorites, like Kilovolt Coffee, Horn BBQ, West Oakland Farm Park, The Crucible, American Steel Studios, Bandaloop and Kinetic Arts Studios.
