It's been a Happy start to the New Year for my client who just closed on the purchase of this super cool loft located in West Oakland's Dogtown district. Known as The Helen Lofts, this gated community, built in 2004 features 12 modern lofts with double height ceilings, ample windows and is located in one of West Oakland's most popular neighborhoods. New lofts and other types of construction are popping up throughout the neighborhood and I'm convinced that the Dogtown area will be fully transformed and unrecognizeable in 3-5 years!
This particular unit is located just a few blocks from Pixar and the Emeryville shopping district, a short drive to the Mac Arthur BART station and two blocks from the freeway entrance to the Bay Bridge. The most unique feature of this particular unit is it's humongous balcony. The concrete balcony is literally half the size of the entire unit, features built-in planter boxes around its perimeter, and provides a nice view of the complex and neighborhood. I recently also sold units #1 and #5 at The Helen Lofts. If you're in the market for a hip and modern Oakland proeprty like this, then please do not hesitate to reach out with any questions.
