About Marina Bay Real Estate
Marina Bay is a planned community located on the waterfront sandwiched between Albany and Point Richmond. Unlike many other communities in the East Bay, Marina Bay is mostly new construction. It was built starting in the ‘90s and is still being built out.
- Spectacular water views of San Francisco Skyline
- Next to the Bay Trail with bike access to Berkeley and beyond
- Access to great parks including the Point Isabel Dog Park and a children’s playground
- Upscale restaurants including the Italian restaurant Salute, Vietnamese restaurant Ahn’s kitchen and California Cuisine oriented Assemble, located next to the Rosie the Riveter National Park Museum.
Marina Bay offers residents a wide variety of comparatively affordable housing including single family homes, condos and apartments. Many of the developments are gated and most offer amenities not found elsewhere such as pools, gyms and tennis courts. Home prices are a great value as waterfront single family homes can be purchased for prices similar to one-bedroom condos elsewhere in the Bay Area.
Marina Bay is located directly next to the 580 freeway and is a convenient neighborhood for commuters headed either to Marin County or San Francisco. Public transportation connects residents to Bart and starting in 2018 Marina Bay will offer direct high speed ferry service to San Francisco.
Marina Bay is popular among sailors and water sports enthusiasts. The marina includes a popular sailing school and a business that offers stand up paddleboard lessons. The area is one of the East Bay’s top spots for kayaking, sailboarding and kite surfing.
