The Port Workspace’s first location was also once Oakland’s American Broom Factory, born in 1925. Just one block off Broadway, three blocks from Jack London Square in downtown Oakland and four blocks from historic Old Oakland.
A polished, professional building centered on a soaring sunlit atrium, the Broom Factory features sleek glass-walled workspaces, sky lit loft offices, redundant wireless Internet, secure keycard access, a dedicated coworking space, community kitchen (offering free artisan coffee and craft beer) and designer conference rooms with 46” monitors, whiteboard walls and a web-linked, tablet-based reservation system.
Equipped for 21st century business, this lovingly restored gem retains its rich brick interiors and charming Roaring Twenties façade. The Broom Factory doubles as curated gallery space, featuring the works of 3 to 4 different local artists each month.
For those who appreciate the best of Oakland’s past and the future, this location is an ideal base for East Bay professionals and entrepreneurs.
