Jack London Icon

The neighborhoods of Jack London Square, Uptown, Downtown, and Old Oakland are primarily commercial, with a vibrant restaurant scene, nightlife, and growing business community. However, there are residences here, too.

Uptown and downtown homes are mostly apartment rentals. This is also the case in Old Oakland, although the buildings here are unique, some with palpable history, while others are modern lofts and condos.

Jack London Square and its neighboring Warehouse District offer the most residential options. Here you'll find large loft and condominium complexes with a combination of properties that are for rent and sale. All are in short distance to BART, Amtrak and the restaurants and shops of Jack London Square.
