Completed in 2014, the award-winning Lampwork Lofts project was the conversion of a historic four-story brick warehouse into 92 for-rent live/work units. As part of the rehabilitation, we certifed the 115,000 square foot building as a national landmark with the National Park Service, allowing the project to utilize Federal Historic Tax Credits. The building was originally built in 1919 and served as the manufacturing facility for General Electrics Mazda Lamps. The building also has the distinction of being the first industrial facility on the West Coast to employ women.\n\nLampwork Lofts was named San Francisco Business Times' Real Estate Deal of the Year 2014 for Market-Rate Housing Outside of San Francisco; PCBC's 2016 Golden Nugget Merit Award for Best Renovated, Restored or Adaptive Re-Use Residential Project; and 2014 Best of American Living Awards - Silver Award for Adaptive Reuse/Multifamily.

What to keep in mind when looking for apartments under $2,000 in Berkeley, CA

Finding a deal on affordable apartments under $2,000 in Berkeley is worth the extra effort. Come ready to pounce on the best deals. Call the property management in advance to ask what paperwork they need and come prepared. Bank statements, pay stubs, identification, and letters of recommendation from an employer or landlord are usually standard. It’s better to come to an apartment tour over-prepared and ready to sign.

You probably won’t find affordable apartments under $2,000 in Berkeley in the heart of the action, but you can still land in a neighborhood you love. Look for locations on the outskirts of your dream location or reconsider how much space you really need. A studio apartment may offer plenty of space in your ideal neighborhood at a cheaper price point.

Some property managers will also know about apartments under $2,000 in other buildings they manage, or through word-of-mouth from industry contacts. Ask about any leads if you can’t find the space you need. Touring the first floor for affordable apartments that need some updating can also yield a great deal.
