345 Henry Street Lofts is a 4-unit loft development in the South Prescott neighborhood of West Oakland. This gated complex shares a common courtyard with its backyard neighbors, the Lewis Street Lofts, making for a friendly, neighborhood experience in an Oakland community that has enjoyed the benefits of ongoing restoration and rehabilitation projects.
In a real estate market that promotes loft living as a lifestyle, many modern loft units are luxury-oriented soft lofts. Not so with the lofts at 345 Henry Street. Designed by Oakland architect Thomas Dolan, who specializes in mixed-use, live-work ventures, the 345 Henry Street Lofts were specifically designed with artists in mind. The working area of each loft is a large (1000 sq. feet) downstairs studio space, with high ceilings, concrete floors, and large double doors leading outside. Upstairs, the living quarters feature light-filled units with skylights and large windows, 20-foot vaulted ceilings accented by exposed wooden beams and trusses, and a sleeping loft settled into a corner above the living area.
