Orion Residence Resource List

Congratulations, you’ve chosen a life on the Oakland waterfront at Orion in Oakland! Whether you’ve chosen a studio, one, two, or three-bedroom, your apartment comes complete with premium finishes including polished quartz countertops, stainless steel appliances, and an in-unit washer/dryer. Our community is also filled with wonderful amenities including a coffee bar, a rooftop deck and so much more.

Now that you’ve selected your apartment, let’s get down to the details. We’ve gathered a few resources that may come in handy when enjoying your life on the water at Orion:

Utilities. Just one? That’s convenient. We make it easy at Orion… the only utility residents have to set up is PG&E. You can give them a call at (800) 743-5000 or start service online.

Local Transit. Orion, and Brooklyn Basin as a whole, is extraordinarily connected to public transportation, making it easy for residents to access the city in their preferred method of travel – a short bike ride, drive or complimentary shuttle will land residents on the doorsteps of some of the city’s favorite features, eateries and shops within minutes.

The bike and pedestrian paths along the Embarcadero make it an easy walk or bike between Brooklyn Basin and Jack London Square, and beautiful for biking along the Bay Trail to Lake Merritt.

A Brooklyn Basin complimentary public shuttle may be used to get from ‘here’ to ‘there’. Running Monday-Friday on 30 minute loops from 9-5pm, except 1-1:30pm (the driver’s lunch break), the shuttle leaves in front of Orion Apartments near the 9th Avenue Terminal retail building and makes stops at Lake Merritt BART, 19th Street BART, 12th Street BART, and Jack London Square before returning to Brooklyn Basin – placing you in downtown and to nearby BART stations, making it easy to access nearly the entire Bay Area.

*Note: New COVID protocols are in place with less capacity allowing for increased physical distancing on the shuttle, passengers are required to wear masks, and there are enhanced regular cleanings. In the future, Brooklyn Basin hopes to resume normal shuttle hours of 6:30-10:30am and 4-8pm Monday-Friday and even add weekend services offering visitors an easy way to access Township Commons public park and retail plus dining at 9th Avenue Terminal building along the waterfront.

Reclaiming the city’s historic waterfront, Brooklyn Basin is Oakland’s newest neighborhood, and our apartments are vibrantly blending work, play, and everyday life by the Bay. Just moments from Jack London Square, 30 acres of public parks, 200 boat slips, events, shops, and restaurants make this a diverse and dynamic extension of the city.
