Mill Creek Residential has complemented its Northern California portfolio with the acquisition of Bachenheimer, a stand-alone building part of the eight-property Berkeley Apartment Collection in downtown Berkeley. The community features 44 apartment homes over 2,670 square feet of ground-floor retail.

Part of the East Bay’s emerging contingent of micro locations, Bachenheimer consists of five stories of one- and two-bedroom homes with an average square footage of 640. Community amenities include a roof deck with outdoor seating area, controlled-access parking garage, clubhouse, bike storage, package service and shared laundry on each floor. Apartment interiors at the pet friendly community include nine-foot ceilings, private patios and balconies with city views, built-in bookshelves, linen closets, dishwasher, faux granite Formica countertops, vinyl flooring and General Electric appliances.

Situated at 2119 University Avenue in the East Bay’s highest-performing submarket, Bachenheimer’s transit-oriented and pedestrian-friendly location benefits from direct access to the world-renowned University of California-Berkeley, which is a two-minute walk from the community. Boasting a Walk Score of 97, Bachenheimer is also adjacent to many major thoroughfares in the area, including Route 24, Interstate 580, Interstate 80, Shattuck Avenue and Telegraph Avenue.
