Empyrean Towers

66 new affordable apartments in Oakland
344 13th Street, Oakland, CA 94612

Empyrean Towers is an existing former residential hotel located in Oakland that will be fully renovated to become an affordable rental community. We will start construction in February 2019 and plan to complete construction in the spring of 2020. Empyrean Towers is centrally located in downtown Oakland and close to BART, AC Transit, Lake Merritt, shopping, and restaurants.

Planned Unit Mix: 54 studios and 12 one-bedroom apartments, of which 40 are occupied by current residents.

Amenities: on-site management and resident services; bicycle parking; community room; and laundry.

Application information, including income-eligibility and rents, will be available at a future point in time and in accordance with funding regulatory agreements. Given the presence of current residents, approximately 25 new units will be available for leasing.  Please check back for updates as construction continues.
