It’s still a buyer’s market! Yesterday, Berkeley Rep announced the purchase of a 62,000-square-foot building at 999 Harrison Street in West Berkeley, which will house our artisans and administrators under one roof for the first time in decades—while cutting costs and supporting the local economy, to boot.

Of course, all performances will continue at the Roda Theatre and the Thrust Theatre—and the extra space means new amenities for our audiences in the future.

We’re thrilled that our offices and shops will be under one roof, instead of in five different locations in two cities. Our employees are coming back to Berkeley to a spacious, attractive new campus in West Berkeley, the city’s home for light manufacturing. And we’re owning instead of renting office and shop space, and gaining 50% more space while paying 50% less money. Score!
