I. Magnin Building

Centrally situated in downtown Oakland, the former I. Magnin building is well-known for its distinctive green terra cotta and black marble façade. A classic art deco structure, the building is listed on the National Historic Register. Purchased in May 2000, the building underwent a comprehensive rehabilitation including: an award winning seismic upgrade, brand new electrical/mechanical data systems and new interior finishes.  The result is a modern work environment within one of Oakland's most recognized historic structures.
