Trellis and sidewalk perspective.

Magnolia Row townhouse lofts are market-rate ownership sale housing located in West Oakland. They provide an entry level housing opportunity while revitalizing this centrally located historic neighborhood.

Landscaped driveway and entry trellis.

Magnolia Row is a hybrid of an urban loft and a residential townhouse. Both the 3-story units along Magnolia and the 2-story units on 32nd Street offer large, open loft-style living areas combined with private bedrooms.


Magnolia Row bridges the gap between industrial and residential neighborhoods. Large windows and low-sloped roofs reflect the aesthetic of the nearby warehouses, while the scale of the buildings, lap-board exterior siding, trellises, and gardens mix well with the area's Victorian homes.
