Lampwork Lofts Project Illuminating West Oakland
One of the most ambitious developments in West Oakland since the financial crisis struck is nearing completion and could brighten a broader but low voltage neighborhood revitalization.
Lampwork Lofts, a $25.2 million conversion of a century-old historic factory into 92 apartments, will open its doors to residents as early as July 1.

Renters snap up Lampwork Lofts — only new Oakland apartments this year
Lampwork Lofts revitalized a shuttered lightbulb factory in West Oakland into industrial chic apartments that are now on the market. Developer Madison Park Financial is putting the finishing touches on the building while prospective residents keep signing — close to half of the building’s 92 units are spoken for six weeks after leasing started.
The project, which started construction last year, is the only market-rate project to hit the market this year in Oakland, where demand for housing is booming.
