Night View

AVE is excited to bring its flexible-stay furnished suite offering to the East Bay Area market of San Francisco with AVE Emeryville at Bay Street!

This 264-unit apartment community, located in the heart of Bay Street Emeryville directly on top of retail, now offers fully furnished suites and luxury apartments, just footsteps from transit to San Francisco and minutes from the Berkeley and Oakland markets.

AVE Emeryville at Bay Street, formerly known as Bay Street Apartments, is AVE’s first professionally managed property on the West Coast.

“We’ve been listening to our clients and partners, and there is a real need in this market for comfortable, flexible-stay accommodations,” explains Lea Anne Welsh, president of AVE and COO of parent company Korman Communities.

AVE Emeryville at Bay Street is close to companies such as Pixar, Ikea, Chiron Corporation, Southwest Airlines, AT&T, Whole Foods California, Bayer Health Care, and Tesla Motors.

Bay Street Emeryville is one of the hottest neighborhoods in the East Bay Area. An eclectic urban village offering shopping, dining, and entertainment, this social hub is also home to 382,000 square feet of retail and entertainment including Apple Store, Sephora, H&M, J.Crew, White House | Black Market, and an AMC Dine-In Theatre, as well as a diverse collection of restaurants like P.F. Changs China Bistro, California Pizza Kitchen, Buckhorn Grill, and Fuddruckers.

Korman Communities, headquartered in Plymouth Meeting, Pa., pioneered the furnished apartment concept with flexible leasing in the 1960s at The Plaza in Center City, Philadelphia, offering a solution – furnished apartments for stays of a few weeks to a few months – for individuals who are on extended business trips or life in transition, whether they relocating for work, doing a major renovation on their home, or just in between homes.

Korman Communities also pioneered the hospitality approach to multifamily residential decades ago and has already started elevating the lifestyle at AVE Emeryville at Bay Street, bringing an experienced management team on site seven days a week to offer high-touch service and unparalleled amenities.

“Everything we offer – from our teams being on site, to providing dedicated services, to our on-demand business and resort amenities – is to ensure our residents are comfortable and feel taken care of,” says Welsh.

AVE Emeryville at Bay Street will offer 1- and 2-bedroom fully furnished suites, as well as luxury apartments for discerning renters by choice. The pet-friendly community boasts a resort-style pool, hot tub, outdoor grilling stations, resident lounge, business center and conference room.
