Located at the edge of the emerging Central Station neighborhood of West Oakland, Pacific Cannery Lofts is an adaptive re-use of a historic cannery as a diverse collection of studios, flats and loft townhouses around three open-air courts.

Pacific Cannery Lofts was designed in conjunction with Ironhorse at Central Station, adjacent affordable family rental apartments. Together the projects begin to repair the street grid and bring new development and residents to the Central Station area.
