Down the street from Pixar Studios is the David Baker designed lofts at 1500 Park Street. This is one of my favorite loft spaces in the East Bay. This building is in an ultra urban area of Emeryville and boasts the most lush, secluded garden as the entry. Once inside this building you will feel like you are in Eames territory. With a maple plywood mailbox area to the floor to ceiling windows, the modern space gives a nod to mid-century modernist.
Currently listed in this building is unit 223 offered at $249,300. (Listed with Jason of All Emeryville Properties) This is a below market rate unit for moderate household incomes making $75,000 per year as a single person or $85,700 combined for a couple.

It is important to note that if you purchase a home at a below market rate, you will have to sell your property at a below market rate, unless you own this unit for 25 years. (From my understanding, below market rates are set by the county of Alameda, and prices change with the economy. Please call Janet if you have more questions.)
