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.

City Guide for El Cerrito, CA

Founded by San Francisco residents that survived the 1906 earthquake, El Cerrito means "little knob" or hill.

Situated along the East Bay, El Cerrito is considered part of the much larger San Francisco Bay Area. The city in Contra Costa County was founded by San Francisco residents displaced after the devastating 1906 earthquake that all but leveled the city. They settled first on ranch land, and then built a town around it. When a post office was established on the ranch in 1909, the settlement was named Rust after its first postmaster. The residents weren't happy with that name and by 1916 the area was known as El Cerrito.

What to keep in mind when looking for studio apartments in El Cerrito, CA

Studio apartments could offer the best of El Cerrito living at a less expensive price tag than larger units. Look for the best buildings near entertainment, dining, and public transportation or highway access.

Ask about the square footage of studio apartments in El Cerrito during your tour. Even a little extra space in another building can offer more room for storage or an additional chair. Consider the layout and what you can accomplish before you sign. You should have enough room for your bed, a small sitting area, and a dining table. You can always get creative and loft your bed to save on space underneath or install a fold-down table or desk that tucks away.
