As the first residential opportunity in the Brooklyn Basin neighborhood, Orion offers 241 premium apartments inspired by its location on the naturally stunning Oakland coastline. Imbued with a pioneering sense of adventure and sophistication, Orion blends bohemian Californian style with a relaxed sense of refinement—expressed in understated yet lux design, distinctively upscale floor plans and a collection of community-cultivating amenities.


Reclaiming the city’s historic waterfront.

Brooklyn Basin is Oakland’s newest neighborhood, vibrantly blending work, play and everyday life by the Bay. As the first residential offering in this fresh community, Orion plays a key part in defining what it means to live along the coastline.


SDG and consultant team utilized creative solutions to develop a successful project. Our team was able to work effectively with our regulatory and financial partners to move this very important project forward.

Leveraging a creative partnership.

Community Builder

Where convenience meets community.

Designed to blend opportunities for urban convenience and community with moments of relaxing retreat, the amenities of this GreenPoint-rated building provide every comfort of home… and beyond. Directly adjacent to Orion will be the historic 9th Avenue Terminal Building that will include a specialty grocery store and other neighborhood serving amenities.

Land Restoration

Restoring coastal living.

Orion is part of the restoration of a previous industrial and underutilized site to a thriving, mixed-use community. The community here will be connected to the water in a way that was never previously possible.


As the first residential development at Brooklyn Basin, Orion will pave the way for other developments to thrive as a collective community along the waterfront. Orion is inspired by the history of its location, and the pioneering spirit of those who will be the neighborhood’s first residents.

The cornerstone of a thriving community.
