Emeryville is building a bicycle & pedestrian bridge over interstate 80 at 65th street. The overpass will connect the Berkeley-Emeryville Greenway with the Bay Trail. There are two meetings with presentations, so you hopefully can attend one of them.

Emeryville City Council Chambers, 1333 Park Avenue, Emeryville.

Emeryville, Well, what do you know?

Posted by Len Gilbert on January 11, 2009

How much do you know about the proposed Emery-Piedmont campus? One great way to learn more is to visit the site for a tour either Saturday, January 17th 10-12 or Saturday January 24th 10-12.

You may not realize how many of your Piedmont neighbors work in Emeryville. Novartis, Leap Frog, Jamba Juice, Kodak Gallery (formerly Ofoto), Peets Coffee & Tea, and Peaberry’s Coffee and Tea all have corporate offices in Emeryville. Peets and Jamba also have retail outlets as well. And then there is Pixar. I think they make movies…you may have heard of them.

For the foodie, there is Trader Joe’s, Arizmendi Bakery, Townhouse Bar & Grill, Rudy’s Can’t Fail Cafe (2008’s Best East Bay Diner) and Charles Chocolates (5 blocks from the Emery school site! THAT could be a problem for me.). I usually go to the Peets in the Public Market, but if Peets is not your cup o’joe, there is a Starbucks about 4 blocks from the campus. Your child may already be familiar with Head over Heals Gymnastics, and they will surely love the new Doyle-Hollis park going in about 1 block from the school. Aquatic park is also just a few blocks away.

Shoppers have Bay Street or Ikea for a little retail therapy, and if the big stores are not your thing, Berkeley’s 4th Street is 5 minutes away. Also nearby is the Berkeley’s Farmers Market (Tuesdays, 2-6 Derby@MLK).



Let me know if you  have other cool Emeryville tips.
