Welcome to Vue46 #319. This rare 1 bedroom plus den, 2 bathroom Emeryville loft features a spacious open floor plan with 1,281 sq. ft. (per tax records) and room for guests or an office plus an easy-to-maintain outdoor space with amazing city skyline views.
“Urban chic” is an apt description of this loft condo, with dramatic soaring ceilings and a wall of west-facing double-high windows. This home is all about indoor/outdoor living, as you open the sliding glass doors that lead from the living room and onto the large low-maintenance patio. Check out the western views of the Oakland waterfront and San Francisco skyline. It’s even prettier at the twilight hour and at night. Imagine the summer sunset dinner parties you can have right here. Entertaining is easy in this modern and light-filled space; the spacious open-concept floor plan allows for plenty of room for a large dining table. The kitchen has abundant cabinetry, granite countertops, and stainless steel appliances.
A large flexible space area on the main level is currently being used as an office/guest room. This bonus area has potential to be converted to a second sleeping space. The level is completed with a full bathroom and a closet for storage. The main-level flooring is elegant terrazzo tile.
Upstairs, there is a master bedroom retreat with a huge walk-in closet. The spacious master bathroom has an extra-long countertop, double sinks, and a shower stall plus a washer and dryer.
A separate assigned storage space in the building and 1-car parking complete the home. Current monthly HOA dues are $398, which include water/sewer, garbage, exterior maintenance, reserves, management, and hazard insurance.
Vue46 is a project of Levin Menzies & Associates of Walnut Creek, Kwan Henmi Architects of San Francisco, and Barry Swenson Builders of San Jose. Originally headquarters for Aluminum Cooking Materials, whose WearEver cookware products are still on the market today, Vue46 was converted in 2008 to 80 dramatic condos, townhomes, and lofts. Community amenities include a fitness center; a media room with a big-screen TV and surround sound; a controlled-access lobby; and a peaceful courtyard garden on the second floor.
With several transportation options nearby, this loft is a commuter’s dream. It’s minutes to San Francisco via highway 80 and just a few blocks away is the free Emery Go-Round shuttle to the Macarthur BART station 1.1 miles away. With easy access to Berkeley, downtown Oakland, and Uptown Oakland, you’ll find plenty of shopping opportunities at the Bay Street plaza and IKEA and there are numerous restaurant options such as Honor Kitchen, Townhouse Bar and Grill, and Arizmendi Bakery.
Emeryville, an industrial center that languished for years, changed its image in the 1990s by becoming an arts and business center. In the early 20th century, the city was also known for its gambling houses, speakeasies, and racetracks. In recent decades, Emeryville not only cleaned up its industrial areas but also welcomed biotech firms, software firms, and technology companies such as Pixar Animation Studios. In 1990, the city approved an Art in Public Places program, and, since then, the arts have flourished.
