Downtown Oakland Real Estate Market

Some might say Downtown Oakland real estate is as diverse as the city’s population, but when it really comes down to it, condos, lofts, vintage apartments, and even some upscale townhouses tend to dominate the downtown housing landscape. If you’re into the fine arts or work in a creative industry, Uptown Oakland features a number of highly desirable work-live spaces that couldn’t offer a more inspiring atmosphere. And on the other side of town, Chinatown presents residents with a close proximity to a wide-range of local attractions, including the Oakland Museum of California, the Oakland Public Library, Laney College, and the Lake Merritt Amphitheater and lakefront park. But regardless of whether you’re looking for a stylish concrete or timber loft in Jack London Square or Uptown or a newer construction condo right in the heart of the city, the Downtown Oakland real estate market is sure to have something that fits all your needs, wants, and lifestyle preferences, and even your budget too.

Downtown Oakland Community Amenities

If you’ve never been to Oakland or spent any time here, perhaps the first thing you’ll notice about the downtown area is all the stunning and historic architecture that’s on display all over town. Buildings like the Rotunda Building, the Cathedral Building, and of course the famous Oakland Tribune Tower all help shape the city’s distinct skyline, and to locals who appreciate Downtown Oakland’s rich history, these and other magnificent works of art couldn’t blend in more with what’s now considered to be one of the artsiest cities in the country.

Perhaps what makes living in Downtown Oakland so convenient is the city’s easy accessibility. Both the I-980 and I-880 freeways run directly around the heart of the city, while countless BART stations are strategically positioned all throughout downtown to help get residents and daily commuters to and from just about any part of the city in no time.
