Building History

Oakland architect Harry A. Bruno (1908-2002) designed teh Metropolitan Yacht Club Building in the mid-1950s. It opened in 1957.

According to the now defunct yacht club's web site: "Metropolitan Yacht Club of Oakland was a prestigious, popular and well-respected club founded in 1957, originally located in Jack London Square. Unfortunately, because of the Loma Prieta earthquake and the City of Oakland’s redevelopment plans, MYC lost its lease in 1999 when the building was sold, scattering its large membership among its rival clubs."
