A Gift To The Street


Thursday's our broker's tour... we stopped to see a North Berkeley home... and parked across from the Rose Market.

I've lived in Berkeley since 1974. That practically makes me a native Californian (complete with blond hair and blue eyes). And for just about that entire time there was a decrepit old storefront on Rose Street. The Berkeley Architectural Heritage Association described the Hunrick Grocery as a structure of merit, and described it in detail on their web site. They have some superb photos, showing it around the turn of the century (20th and 21st!)

Imagine our delight when we were out on tour about a year ago, and saw its miraculous transformation! David Trachtenberg preserved the sign, built two superb condos behind it, and gave Berkeley a real gift to the street.

Thank you David!
