Enjoy a world of luxury concierge living from the moment you arrive at the Iconic Bellevue Staten on Lake Merritt. A door person greets you as you arrive, with valet service available 24 hrs a day, seven days a week; they will whisk away your car and will also have your car waiting when departing the building.
 
A world of its own, The Bellevue Staten offers convenience and comfort for its residents: concierge service handles incoming and outgoing packages, as well as collection of garbage and recycling daily from outside your kitchen. Should you require business needs, the on-site copier and paper shredder is readily available. All of this, in addition to meticulous building and garden maintenance, heat, hot water, daily rubbish removal, laundry, cable and internet are included in your monthly dues. One bill covers everything!

Just a quick elevator ride up to the 6th floor, step inside this coveted corner unit and you will be instantly impressed. Arched entries, high ceilings and freshly painted walls with newly refinished parquet wood floors add to the warm environment. Oversized and ideal for lounging and entertaining the living room features a fireplace and views of the lake - imagine curling up by the fire while enjoying the twinkling lights.

Adams Point, considered the “Jewel of Oakland," is located near the northern shore of Lake Merritt. The neighborhood is tucked between the Uptown Oakland and Grand Lake neighborhoods and if you’re looking for gorgeous lake views from home, The Bellevue-Staten and the elaborate, Beaux Arts-styled Regillus buildings are ideal for you. You can also find a variety of single-family homes and cozy condominiums in Adams Point, making it one of the more diverse real estate areas in Oakland.

There is more to Lake Merritt than a beautiful body of water. Adams Point residents can easily access a few of the area’s popular public parks. Nearby Lakeside Park includes Children’s Fairyland, a storybook theme park that has delighted generations of kids and even served as a model for Disneyland Park. The three-mile pathway around the lake hosts hundreds of runners and walkers each day.

If you enjoy exploring a vast array of plant life, the Gardens at Lake Merritt are a must-see. Stroll through the peaceful Bonsai and Japanese Gardens, or transport yourself to a tropical paradise in the Palm Garden.

Just south of the Gardens is where you will find the Lake Merritt Boating Center, which offers sailing classes, as well as rents kayaks canoes, and sailboats. If you have your own boat or kayak, you can use it on Lake Merritt for a small fee.

Adams Point is a short stroll from the 19th Street Bay Area Rapid Transit (BART) station, making it a great neighborhood for commuters. Residents from Adams Point can ride to Google Headquarters in less than 40 minutes, and to the Financial District in less than 30. Additionally, the neighborhood’s close proximity to Interstate 580 makes it easy to travel to the Oakland Zoo, or up to the Golden Gate Fields in Northwest Berkeley.

Living in Adams Point is great for people who love live entertainment, dinner & a movie, or a delicious meal. Paramount Theatre is less than one mile from Adams Point, and showcases a variety of live acts including stand-up comedy shows, concerts, and performing arts. About two blocks south, you will find the historic Fox Theater, which seats up to 2,800 people and features similar shows.

After a great show (or any time of day), Adams Point’s Grand Avenue offers a variety of dining options. Some of the local favorites include the New American sensation Sidebar, Coach Sushi, a popular Japanese restaurant known for its bottomless sake, and Grandeur, a Midtown Oakland Staple for delicious Vegan Cuisine.
