Home to some of Berkeley’s finest residences, Elmwood offers the self-contained, community-based character of a small town. The Elmwood District is a local treasure, a two-block shopping and dining-centric area and Berkeley's oldest commercial district. College Avenue, Elmwood’s main shopping corridor, is home to dozens of shops and restaurants. The Rialto Cinemas Elmwood is a classic Berkeley Theater, screening first-run films nightly. The Elmwood boasts over 50 independently-owned boutiques, and dozens of cafes and restaurants. Its wide range of cuisines reflects the diversity of Berkeley. Future residents will be immediately adjacent to the AC Transit Telegraph Avenue bus line and 15 minutes away from the Ashby BART Station. With its close proximity to downtown Berkeley and the UC Berkeley campus, and access to San Francisco via Rockridge and Ashby BART, it’s one of the best commuter neighborhoods in the East Bay, making it an ideal location for students and young professionals alike.
