Why the name Orion?  The Orion constellation is one of the brightest and best known constellations in the night sky. It lies on the celestial equator and has aided those navigating on land and water throughout time with a welcome and comforting sight to guide you on your journey.

Brooklyn Basin
Reclaiming the city’s historic waterfront, Brooklyn Basin is Oakland’s newest neighborhood, 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. And as the first residential offering in this fresh community, Orion will play a key part in defining what it means to live here along the coastline.

Why the name Brooklyn Basin?  The Brooklyn, a ship holding 238 peace-seeking passengers, set sail from New York to San Francisco in February 1846. It wasn’t gold that drew them to the coast, but rather a dream of refuge. Their courageous spirit eventually earned them just that; after a nearly six-month journey of 24,000 miles, the adventurers finally settled by the bay. Brooklyn Basin flourished as a bustling community well into the 1930’s, and it’s to this rich history that this neighborhood hearkens.
