PIEDMONT AVENUE
COMMERCIAL STRIP OF THE WEALTHY
Welcome to Piedmont Avenue, Oakland.
While bearing the name of its main thoroughfare street, Piedmont Avenue, it is in fact a neighborhood of the same label. This is the main commercial district of the area and has long been a shopping hub for the wealthy of Montclair and the equally wealthy Rockridge. People come here to socialize while devouring excellent food at one of the many trendy five-star restaurants like Baywolf, Dopo and the Michelin-starred Commis. Shopping consists of mainly exclusive boutiques, which will satisfy the pickiest customer. Aside from terrific shopping and dining, there are a number of landmarks in the area. For instance, Julia Morgan-designed 1916 red brick building, which was built as the Fred C. Turner Stores. It is located at the center of the Piedmont Avenue commercial strip and today houses a plethora of gourmet food merchants. Right next-door is where the original Longs Drugs store used to be, a space that is now occupied by a popular tapas bar. On the north end of Piedmont Avenue and Pleasant Valley Avenue lie the hillside Mountain View Cemetery, designed by Frederick Law Olmsted and located just up the street from the gorgeous Chapel of the Chimes also designed by Julia Morgan. For entertainment, you'll find numerous locally owned small businesses including shops, bars and restaurants, as well gyms and specialty stores. Piedmont Avenue also houses the oldest operating theatre in Oakland, the Piedmont Theatre, which was built in 1917. Families might appreciate the fact that the neighborhood of Piedmont Avenue is home to a number of excellent public and private schools, like Piedmont Avenue Elementary and the private Park Day, as well as the school of the Catholic Church of Saint Leo the Great.
