Welcome to the Emeryville Warehouse Penthouse Loft #3, where a dramatic 1 bedroom plus den, 1.5 bathroom bi-level floor plan puts you soaring into the clouds. One of 3 penthouse units that are nestled in the center of the famed Emeryville Warehouse roof line, this loft is for those who truly love light and a sense of openness.
In the main living area, a dramatic wall of floor-to-ceiling windows offers panoramic views of the Berkeley Hills and Emeryville skyline. A large exclusive deck immediately off of the living area accentuates the “sky life” feel while adding an indoor/outdoor living concept. The kitchen offers stone counters and a convenient breakfast bar, perfect for morning coffee or entertaining alike. The spacious mezzanine bedroom has beautiful custom wood floors and a large bathroom with double vanity sinks and dual shower heads. The mezzanine includes an additional office or guest space also surrounded by windows. The home is completed with a half bathroom for guests; an in-unit washer and dryer; and an assigned parking space as well as storage.
Originally constructed in 1925, 1500 Park Avenue was once a fruit-drying warehouse and is now a prime example of adaptive reuse for many of Emeryville’s once-industrial properties. Designed by the award-winning San Francisco/Oakland firm of David Baker Architects and built in 1999, Emeryville Warehouse was a trailblazer in the concept of live/work properties in the East Bay.
The Emeryville Warehouse Lofts’ stunning front door was made by San Francisco’s Sand Studios, the recipient of many architectural design and fabrication awards. The double-height public lobby has polished concrete floors and an architecturally striking steel and wood staircase that leads to the lofts on the second floor. The building is made of steel-reinforced poured-in-place concrete and features a five-story parking garage, an open-air roof deck, and a pedestrian colonnade that fronts Park Avenue. During construction/renovation of the property, the building’s exterior upgrades included new aluminum windows, a new roof, and renovated exterior walls, while the interior was seismically upgraded to include concrete shear walls; new plumbing and electrical systems; a fire sprinkler system; smoke and fire alarm systems; and a card-reading entry system. Lastly, a lushly landscaped entry courtyard was installed and features giant timber bamboo, towering palm trees, a five-story waterfall, and a reflecting pool, all of which screen the building’s entrance from the street while providing a calm oasis. A special feature of this property is the expansive rooftop deck that is available to owners and their guests. The deck is furnished with tables, benches, and chairs in numerous groupings, and has stunning views of Oakland, Berkeley, and beyond.
Award-winning 1500 Park Avenue offers the best in urban loft living in Emeryville, a growing and innovative city that now boasts corporate headquarters for businesses that include world-renowned electronic arts, biotechnology, and digital animation, to name just a few. This wonderful location is perfect for taking advantage of the restaurants and shopping in south Berkeley as well as on Bay Street. With easy access to Oakland, Berkeley, and San Francisco, this outstanding property truly has it all.
