Welcome to 1755 Broadway #56, an industrial-chic penthouse loft in the historic Marquee Lofts building in Oakland’s Uptown neighborhood. This spacious and sophisticated 1 bedroom, 1 bathroom condo offers soaring exposed ceilings, a wall of original arched windows, and beautiful hardwood floors. The architecturally interesting windows overlook Oakland’s bustling Uptown neighborhood with a direct view of the Fox Theater marquee and the Bay Bridge spans in the distance. The evening views offer sunsets and the buzz of theatergoers and restaurant patrons. The revitalization of this neighborhood has received national press with Uber’s purchase of the Sears building in 2015, and the best is yet to come for this centrally located neighborhood.

The Marquee Lofts is home to 24 unique warehouse conversion spaces directly across from the Fox Theater and the 19th Street BART Station and offers an elevator and a courtyard. Convenience is epitomized by this location with truly everything you could need within easy reach from your front door: numerous restaurants, a lovely Whole Foods, bars, entertainment, art galleries, and co-op spaces. This is it.

Uptown is Oakland’s entertainment center and is brimming with energy and activity. The Marquee Lofts are next door to Oakland’s Uptown Station, a renovation of the historic Sears Building offering works space, an open galleria, rooftop fire pits, and incredible design. Uptown is home to both a lively urban renewal and remnants of Oakland’s vibrant mid-20th century shopping district, with a variety of restaurants, cafes, bars, grocery stores, gyms, and more. Dine at great restaurants like Flora’s or Pican’s. Grab a beer at the popular Luka’s or enjoy entertainment such as the Fox Theater, the Paramount, and Lake Merritt, all close by. Transportation options abound; the 19th Street Oakland BART station is across the street and AC Transit operates numerous local buses and a bus transfer station at 20th between Telegraph and Broadway. “The B,” a free weekday shuttle, connects the Uptown district with Old Oakland, Chinatown, City Center, Lake Merritt, and Jack London Square.
