Floor Plan


The City of Albany is a small city of 18,539 residents, located within the greater San Francisco Bay area. Surrounded by the San Francisco Bay to the west, the Berkeley Hills to the East, and the communities of Berkeley, El Cerrito, Kensington, and Richmond, Albany's square miles offer a fascinating diversity within a small town community.

Albany prides itself on being a safe, community-oriented city, with strong services and programs for youth, families and the elderly. It's small town character is exemplified by its "Main Street," Solano Avenue, a pedestrian friendly business district composed primarily of small "mom and pop" shops, and home to some of the Bay area's best restaurants. Albany's public schools have an outstanding reputation with student test scores at the elementary, middle and high school levels among the highest in the state.
