Peace, tranquility, and breathtaking views – you’ll love what Waterline has to offer. But when you live in Point Richmond, there’s more. Much more. Moments away, you’ll find a quaint village, filled with unique places to eat, sophisticated places to shop, and charm around every corner. You can take a stroll, go for a hike or a swim, and end every day with a twinkling skyline just across The Bay. And now, you can own a stunning new condominium in the center of it all.

Our new Waterline homes in Point Richmond are just minutes from Marin, Berkeley, and San Francisco. Built by Shea, featuring sophisticated design and stylish finishes. It’s refreshing. It’s relaxing. And with the community being located on the San Francisco Bay, it’s all about the bay, 24/7/365. Our onsite Visitor Center is now open daily. LEARN MORE
