Arguably the West Coast's Brooklyn, Oakland is in mid-renaissance.
The Grand Lake area is right in the heart of it, and you're steps away.

 

Close to beautiful Lake Merritt, Grand Lake is anchored by the dramatic
Oakland Rose Garden and the landmark Grand Lake Theater.
The neighborhood hums with some of Oakland’s liveliest restaurants, shops, cafes,
and the ever-popular Saturday Farmer’s Market at Lake Merritt.

Enjoy privacy and prestige in what's fast becoming the heart of the Bay Area.

The Oakland renaissance has made the Grand Lake area a destination, a vibrant community, and the surrounding neighborhoods a place of repose.

 

There's nothing like being able to step out for the evening, a Saturday outing or Sunday brunch, stroll down the street and be at your favorite coffee shop, restaurant, or theater. Close enough to leave the parking woes behind, yet far enough away to keep the urban din at bay, the neighborhood is well represented by bottle shops, restaurants, and convenient specialty shops from books to vacuums, bagels to brew pubs. With little need to go elsewhere, 342 Elwood will be your home base from which to experience the developing changes taking place in an already vibrant, people-scaled community.
