West Oakland, one of the city's oldest neighborhoods, is undergoing a transformation, and an integral part of the redevelopment is the master planned community called Central Station. Anchoring the west end of Oakland's Central Station are two sleek new multifamily housing developments: Pacific Cannery Lofts and Zephyr Gate Townhomes.
Zephyr Gate is a Green Point rated, 130-unit townhouse development that is on the cutting edge of innovative, environmentally sensitive construction. Repurposed building materials, efficient heating and air systems, drought resistant landscaping, and Energy Star appliances help to make the townhomes at Zephyr Gate ecologically friendly and affordable. All of the three-story units in the Zephyr Gate complex have bamboo flooring, stainless steel appliances, an attached garage, and two to three bedrooms. Many units also have balconies.
Zephyr Gate Townhomes is in a great commuter location for both automobile and public transportation, making it popular with professionals who work in San Francisco or downtown Oakland. The West Oakland BART station is just a mile away; and from there, the ride to downtown San Francisco is less than 10 minutes, and central Oakland is a short three minutes away. For those who eschew public transportation, all major East Bay freeways and the Bay Bridge are nearby.
