Overview of Emeryville

Located in the heart of the San Francisco Bay Area, Emeryville is home to more than 10,000 residents. The city is a corporate and transportation hub for the Bay Area and offers easy access to Interstates 80, 580 and 880. It also offers Amtrak and Bay Area Rapid Transit Services. The city itself lies between the dynamic communities of Berkeley and Oakland, which both offer unparalleled cultural and entertainment options. Emeryville is unique in that it has a dramatically small geographical size: The entire city encompasses just one square mile of land.

Although indigenous and Mexican peoples thrived for centuries in what would become the Emeryville area, the first organized American party was the Bidwell-Bartleson party, which came to the area in 1841. By 1849, the California Gold Rush drew worldwide attention. Numerous settlers poured into California, causing tremendous growth throughout the area. Emeryville was officially incorporated in December 1896. Since its incorporation, Emeryville has blossomed into an urban center and a central business district for Bay Area corporations. Those searching for Emeryville apartments for rent will be happy to discover this vibrant community.
