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 Emeryville, CA

Emeryville is home to Shellmound, which is a huge deposit of shellfish and other animal remains left over from the meals of ancient Native Americans. This archaeological marvel was formed by a settlement that is thought to have begun more than 2,800 years ago. Adding to Shellmound with your own leftovers is frowned upon.

Emeryville is often considered a neighborhood in Oakland, but is actually its own city. With its San Francisco Bay coastline and easy access to the Bay Bridge, University of California and Berkeley, Emeryville is not like most small towns. Though having only 10,080 people in the 2010 census, the city is growing fast, and is home to an impressive list of nationally known businesses, including Jamba Juice, Peet's Coffee and Tea, Clif Bar, Novartis and Pixar Animation Studios.

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

Finding a deal on affordable apartments under $2,000 in Emeryville 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 Emeryville 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.
