Emeryville is a small corridor between Berkeley and Oakland bordered by the eastern shore of the Bay. Though geographically the city is small—just a bit more than one square mile—there’s a great deal of function and influence packed into it.  Emeryville’s prime location is the hub of several major freeways and is an important transcontinental railway connection with service to Seattle, Los Angeles and Chicago.

Known as a dynamic arts and music community, you’ll find various works of art throughout the community in the public domain. The Art in Public Places Program, as commissioned by the city government, has attracted a growing population of artists and musicians specializing in traditional as well as high-tech mediums.

The major employer is Pixar Animation Studios. Locals who enjoy Pixar’s iconic animated feature films can often spot local landmarks and references in many of those movies.  Another major employer is IKEA, which anchors the well-known Bay Street shopping complex, an imaginative collection of retailers, entertainment, hospitality and residential opportunities. The destination shopper’s paradise comprises more than 382,000 square feet and draws visitors from all over the greater Bay Area.
