Overlooking the Port of Oakland, this fourth-floor unit, which we’ll bill a penthouse, has quite the history behind it: Built in the 1920s as the Phoenix Iron Works foundry (a factory that, among other things, created manhole covers), the property was reconfigured into lofts in the 1990s, now called Phoenix Lofts.
The top-floor pad, designed in part by Tom, Eliot, and Fisch Architects, still bears some of its early aughts thumbprints (we see you, vessel sink), but it remains a choice example of the industrial-chic look so popular at the time.
Featuring three beds, three baths, 5,361 square feet, 737 2nd Street #405 comes with concrete walls with aluminum and glass elements. Other highlights include 11.5’ ceilings, a spiral staircase, floor-to-ceiling windows, a roof deck with citrus and olive trees, and a hot tub.
HOAs are $1,349. Asking is $2,750,000.
