41 Live-Work Condominiums & retail space
This re-use and rehabilitation of an abandoned Oakland icon, the landmark Art-Deco I. Magnin department store was designed as a mixed-use community at a transit node, and includes retail/commercial space on the first floor, a central courtyard and 41 units of live-work space on the upper three floors. Located above a BART station, I. Magnin Lofts was specifically designed to attract both street level traffic and a sizeable number of new residents. With the exception of the restoration of the storefront windows to more resemble their original size and proportion, the original green terra-cotta tile facade is preserved intact. The design of I. Magnin Lofts was a joint venture between Thomas Dolan Architecture and Rossington Architecture.
