The Cathedral Building Condos For Sale
The Cathedral Building, located at 1615 Broadway in Oakland, was designed by architect Benjamin McDougall in 1914, in the Gothic Revival style. It is memorable partly because it was built at the intersection of Telegraph and Broadway. Originally known as the Federal Realty Building, it is strategically located in the area between today's City Center and Uptown art district. It was considered a gem of architectural history, and was added to the National Register of Historic Places in 1979, and then registered as an Oakland landmark in 1983. Now after being developed by Brog Properties, a Downtown Oakland development firm, floors 7-14 are available as private residences.
