#310 at 288 THIRD St, in Jack London Square, Oakland CA
TWO Bedrooms, TWO Bathrooms, TOO Chic to Miss! Jack London Square was known in the early days as the waterfront warehouse district of Oakland. Today, Jack London Square (fondly referred to as "JLS") has been transformed into a vibrant urban community with renovated warehouses, new construction buildings, boutique restaurants, wineries, breweries, pubs, galleries, eateries and so much more! Urban life is anchored here by the JLS transporatation hub that includes: the Ferry to San Francisco's Embarcadero Center, Amtrak, the train that goes to San Jose in one direction and across the countrty in the other, TWO BART stations nearby, and the easy access to 580/880 freeways to everywhere in the San Francisco Bay area.
288 3rd St condominium building was built in 2006 (approx), far newer than some of the early 1920's converted warehouses in the area. 288 3rd St was built keeping the visual references to the architecture and industrial history of the neighborhood -- for example, integrating raw concrete ceilings and concrete accent walls -- with modern smooth wall finishes, upscale accents, and kitchen and bath design modernity.
Unit #310 exemplifies one of the key things that residents love about living here: A "Lock and Go!" lifestyle where you lock your front door and walk to public transportation and go out into the world to seek adventures -- whether taking the train across the country, or the ferry to work in San Francisco.
(Best-Kept Secret #1: the best lattes are served on the ferry ride to San Francisco!)
And something totally unheard of in today's commute world: Jack London Square location is one of the few unique neighborhoods where you can actualy live without a car! And yes, there is a 1-car parking spot for #310 that comes with the condo, with an additional storage locker too!
(Best-kept Secret #2: Jack London Square in Oakland has the finest weather patterns in the East Bay, warmer than San Franciso, almost absent fog, many many more sunny days!!)
On a sunny day, #310 has direct sunlight that floods the entire condo throughout the day. Harwood floors grace the living and dining rooms, kitchen, and the TWO spacious bedrooms. The floorplan layout provides great separation of living spaces between the TWO bedrooms and TWO full baths.

A hallway closet provides additional ample closet and storage space. (As noted above, there is an additional storage locker space in the garage area that comes with the unit.)
288 3rd St is also the envy of the neighborhood for its magnificent roof-top garden with outdoor kitchen, BBQ, lounge area and entertainment spaces. The unparalleled views of the growing city skyline of Oakland is breathtaking. To escape for a quiet retreat with a glass of wine, or to relax on a sneaked-in "stay at home spa day," this special place is, well, special!
