What used to be a sleepy industrial town full of factories is now a living, working, and dining and shopping destination. Emeryville is situated at the foot of the Bay Bridge and is between San Francisco and Berkeley. With its ideal location (not too far from Silicon Valley) companies made this their home including: Pixar Animation Studios, Peets Coffee & Tea, and Jamba Juice.
Biotech and software companies call this home too. Among them are: LeapFrog, SendMail, MobiTV, Bayer, and Novartis (formerly called Chiron).
On the first image, the red roofed building on the left houses offices, but on the ground floor, it’s a dining experience. Ground floor is home to Public Market , the place where I used to destress after work.
My first job was in Emeryville when it was still a sleepy town so it has a soft spot in my heart. Plus, it’s difficult to forget this city, I pass this on my way to work twice a day.
All photos are snapped from across the bay in Berkeley at the marina.
