Welcome to this stunning 2 bedroom, 2 bathroom loft-style penthouse in the highly desirable Vue46 community, a warehouse loft building in Emeryville. This dramatic corner home offers soaring ceilings, concrete columns, and natural light flooding across 1,930 sq. ft. of living space on a single-level floor plan.
The home offers a spacious corner living room overlooking the Oakland Hills to the east and Mount Tam to the west. The living room is open to the dedicated dining area and modern gas kitchen with granite countertops and stainless steel appliances. Beautiful American Cherry hardwood floors extend throughout the living spaces. This is a fantastic layout with bedrooms at opposite ends of the large living space allowing for maximum functionality. Add a gallery-style entry foyer; generous closet space; an in-unit washer and dryer; a very large wine refrigerator; side-by-side 2-car parking; and a huge storage area: this condo is special.
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.
