City Limits Lofts takes its name from its location on the border between Oakland and Emeryville. Designed by local firm Kava Massih Architects, this 92-unit complex makes ingenious use use of an awkwardly shaped three-acre parcel with eighteen cleverly staggered buildings and a landscaped promenade that winds among the interior buildings, linking them with the surrounding surface streets.
Completed in 2005, City Limits Lofts are a modern take on traditional loft style. All units are three story townhouses with the loft characteristics of large industrial-sized windows and exposed interior beams. Eight different floor plans feature one and two bedroom designs, and homes range from just over 1000 square feet to almost 1500 square feet. Each unit features a sheltered front porch, a private balcony, and exclusive garage parking. Some of the larger units include commercial office/work space on the ground floor.
