Downtown Oakland Homes
Downtown Oakland has become the center of revitalization and growth for the city over the last few years. The activity began slowly growing from Jack London Square north towards the center of the city, and the addition of new office buildings, condominiums, and businesses has attracted a new interest in purchasing homes and condominiums in areas adjacent to the City Center complex. Many people want to live in the heart of the excitement that is now downtown Oakland.
Established activities included the restaurants and shops around Old Oakland, Chinatown, City Center, and Jack London Square. Add to this mix the nearby Oakland Museum of California, plus the ever changing musical presentations offered by the now stunning Fox and Paramount Theaters, and you see the appeal.
New activities have been developed to attract families and their friends into the area, and they have proven very successful. One of the most popular has been Oakland's First Fridays It is a drawing a wonderful crowd. Held primarily in and around the Uptown Neighborhood of Oakland, it is held on Telegraph Avenue between 19th and 27th Streets, and has live music, artisans of every kind, street art, galleries to view, and food of every description. Add to this the Oakland Art Murmur which is also held on the first Friday and downtown Oakland is alive with entertainment. The Art Murmur is a free monthly art walk, and various member art galleries hold artists receptions and open their galleries to the public to show their work. This same artistic concept is repeated with a Saturday Stroll each Saturday.
There is a large variety of condominium housing available now, and many have pleasant views, a roof garden, lots of amenities like a complete gym and sauna, and all are within walking distance of some amazing things to do.
