  • Royal York Apartments

    This splendid apartment house on Bigelow Boulevard is a feast of Art Deco details; in fact, in a city that never adopted Art Deco as enthusiastically as many of its rivals, this is one of the most remarkable Art Deco buildings. Like many other apartment blocks in Oakland, it required some cleverness from the architect to adapt it to an unpromisingly irregular site.

    Addendum: According to a city survey of historic buildings, the architect was Edward Stanton, and the building was put up in 1937.
