Pacific Cannery Lofts

Oakland, California, U.S.A.

Project Facts

  • Pacific Cannery Lofts is a sustainable housing complex featuring 163 new loft and townhouse units on a 2.7-acre urban site, formerly home to an industrial cannery.
  • This project is part of a greater movement to redevelop 30 acres of industrial brownfields into a new transit-oriented “Central Station” neighborhood, located just half a mile from downtown Oakland.
  • To conserve water, the landscape incorporates climate adapted plant materials and a high-efficiency drip irrigation system.
  • Salvaged materials are integrated into the landscape. Old machines are now displayed throughout the site as artful relics that showcase a rich layer in labor history.
