The LakePark Apartments at 1565 Madison Street in Oakland Ca. has been purchased by BAA Investment Group, LLC.

The 66-unit apartment building is located one block off Lake Merritt, within walking distance to two BART stations and to Uptown District dining and nightlife.
“We are very pleased to add this property to our holdings in this Gold Coast/Lake Merritt area, which has become very popular with young professionals.

The property has undergone a recent common area renovation, including a new lobby, elevators, and a fitness center.
