Welcome to the northwest penthouse at Vue46: a massive top-floor corner loft with robust spaces and exceptional views. This 1 bedroom plus den, 2 bathroom home offers tri-bridge views along with the San Francisco city skyline, Mount Tam, and the Bay. One of the larger lofts in the building, #520 features a flexible floor plan of 1691 sq. ft. over two levels with multiple seating/office areas and a flex space perfect for a guest room. There are huge bathrooms on each level. If you are an art lover, this home is the perfect space for you; with a sprawling floor plan and double-height ceilings, there is ample room for large art pieces.
A gallery-style entryway welcomes you to the home. Off the hall, a convenient flex space could be enclosed for a guest room or office. The gas kitchen is an open L-shape, perfectly suited for a kitchen island or dining table alike. The kitchen features granite counters and ample cabinetry with industrial-style pulls and hardware. White oak hardwood floors extend through this level. The home has been fitted with Elfa brand closet systems, a true organizational joy for the space. On this level there are also a full bathroom and a hall closet.
The second level offers a large, open mezzanine area and closet space and an enclosed bedroom suite. The mezzanine is well suited for an office, a guest room, or a second living area and has recently-installed high-end carpet with extra-thick padding. Through this area you access the bedroom and en-suite bathroom. The bedroom features a wall of Elfa-designed closets as well as a huge walk-in closet, also Elfa-designed. A washer and dryer in the mezzanine offers convenience.
The home’s lighting, including custom sconces, has been updated. There is a tremendous amount of storage, including a separate storage space in the building’s garage. Unlike other buildings offering small closets or cubes, this storage space is a large fully enclosed room.
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.
