Located on the waterfront, Jack London Square, an urban oasis, boasts more than 30 restaurants, an array of national and local retailers, cinemas, a jazz club, lively weekend farmer’s and artisan’s markets, and plenty of options for a picturesque stroll. Be sure to stop by Yoshi’s, Everett & Jones, The Fat Lady or Belcampo.
Rich in local history and turn-of-the-century architecture, the eclectic mix of Jack London Square’s real estate includes brick and timber warehouses, converted lofts, dazzling new residential high-rises, and dozens of visually arresting modern homes, many with water and bridge views. Former mayor of Oakland, Jerry Brown, was a long-time resident and familiar face in the neighborhood.
Just minutes off I-880, Jack London Square is a central location for those who work in San Francisco but don’t want to pay San Francisco prices for a home. Convenient access to public transportation, including ferries, BART and Amtrak, make it extra appealing and a time-saver for commuters. On most game days for the San Francisco Giants the commuter ferry to San Francisco makes a special run from its Jack London berth directly to AT&T Park. It’s a relaxed and scenic way to get out to the ball game without traffic or parking headaches.
