West Oakland Icon

Anchored by the fourth largest container seaport in the United States, West Oakland has a strong industrial history. Many of its older homes were built in World Wars I and II. Some home-buyers choose to buy older Victorians and renovate them from the inside out. Others prefer to move into lofts converted from old warehouses. The old and the new coexist, as do artists, young professionals and working families.

West Oakland is easily accessible by public transportation including BART and buses. If you are an urban pioneer who is looking to buy somewhere before it really booms, look into West Oakland.
