Although one of the oldest (and most storied) neighborhoods in Oakland, in the late 1800s, Temescal served as little more than a train stop for cars traveling from downtown Oakland to Berkeley. But as the town grew, so, too, did its residents’ desire for a better quality of life, and, at the close of that century, they voted to join the City of Oakland in an effort to gain access to better public schools and police services.

In a Few Words

On the rise

Living Here

Although its streets are no longer lined with train cars, Temescal is still a go-to destination for those attracted to its trendy retailers and restaurants. In the heart of Temescal, where Telegraph Avenue inches toward 51st Street, you’ll find what locals and patrons have dubbed as the East Bay’s second Gourmet Ghetto:


Temescal is also known for its great art scene. The Temescal Art Center offer classes, performances, and workshops to keep you active, cultured, and entertained.

Why Temescal?

Over the past few years, real estate values in Temescal have experienced a steady rise. In addition, newly built condominiums, developments, and lofts continue to add to the neighborhood’s popularity.
