“Now is the time and this is the place” — that’s the message City Ventures has for environmentally conscious house hunters looking for a place to live in West Oakland. On Saturday, October 1st, the developer will be hosting a grand opening event for its Station House project, and it says it’s home to some of the most energy-efficient new homes on the planet.
City Ventures’ Green Key technology is part of what makes the two- and three-bedroom townhomes at Station House so eco-friendly. Features include high-efficiency lighting, high-performance appliances and materials and water-wise appliances. Additionally, all residences run on solar power — that means residents do not pay a gas bill and can reduce their electricity bill by as much as 80 percent.
Aside from being incredibly “green,” homes at Station House benefit from being located in booming West Oakland. It’s near several other popular new residential communities, and many of the area’s Victorian homes are being refurbished. All told, the city is planning to build 5,000 residential units, business and industrial space covering 3.85 million square feet and 8,000 square feet of office and retail space.
West Oakland also offers easy access to San Francisco and plenty of amenities. The nearby West Oakland BART station is just seven minutes from downtown San Francisco, and the I-880 on-ramp is only three minutes away by car. Station House is also only a two-minute bike ride from Mandela Parkway, home to scenic pathways and trendy eateries.
The grand opening for Station House will take place from 11am to 4pm at 1818 14th Street in West Oakland, and three model homes will be available for viewing at that time.
