a piece of architectural history
The Rose on Bond occupies an entire City Block in the Melrose neighborhood of Oakland, California. Built in 1930, this Spanish Colonial compound was home to the former Melrose Baptist Church, surrounded by fruit orchards and early to mid-century bungalows. Today, the architectural gem boasts 60 apartment suites ranging in size from Studios to 2-bedroom units. Amenities include a secure outdoor courtyard with BBQ area, gated parking, on-site laundry, package concierge, and secure bike parking. The Rose on Bond is listed on the National Register and is recognized as an example of Spanish Colonial Revival Style architecture prevalent in the early 20th century, designed by Wythe, Blaine, and Olsen.
