Assembly is Where Details Matter

Assembly is a 127-unit apartment community that incorporates an historic Auto Row storefront transformed into 8,000 square feet of ground floor retail space. Located in Oakland’s Uptown District, Assembly is walking distance to the shops, restaurants and art galleries in Uptown district and Piedmont Ave, as well as two nearby Bart stops.

Lowe created Assembly by assembling four contiguous parcels and incorporating an existing Auto Row storefront as a key element of the design. The bright and spacious apartments, with floor-to-ceiling windows, make up the five stories above the historic building, wrapping around the Courtyard, a central spot for
residents to relax in a landscaped plaza.  The apartment homes are configured as studio, one-, two- and three-bedroom units all offering quality finishes, wide
plank flooring, in-unit washer and dryer and keyless entry. Assembly offers multiple options for indoor and outdoor gathering including a roof deck with expansive views, a Club Room, and a mezzanine level conference space and co-working room. A two-level fitness center with 18-foot ceiling overlooks and connects the Courtyard. Assembly features public artworks by local artists in its courtyard and lobby.

Assembly delivers an elevated experience through thoughtful, layered design touches and superior service.
