Oakland Loft District Lands Major Software Company
Software maker Navis just landed the last of the office space in the new, 170,000 square feet Jack London Square Market, establishing the neighborhood as an employment hub as well as one of Oakland's premier loft and restaurant districts.
According to an article in the San Francisco Business Times, Navis is a maker of logistics software will occupy 35,000 square feet on the fifth and sixth floors with over 150 employees. The market building also houses the headquarters for law firm Kazan, McClain, Abrams, Lyons, Greenwood, and Harley, as well as solar-panel leasing company, Sungevity, and Haven, a new eatery by local restaurateur, Daniel Patterson. The first two levels will be culinary-related vendors similar to the Ferry Building on the Embarcadero in San Francisco.
