The Lorin is one of the most diverse, artistic and transit accessible commercial districts in the City of Berkeley. The district is home to the South Berkeley Farmers market, boasts a thriving art and antiques cluster and is home to Shotgun Players and Berkeley Black Repertory Theater. It is also fast becoming an emerging food scene with an impressive assortment of new eating and drinking establishments
It is also the southernmost gateway into the City. With direct access to Highway 24 from Adeline Street and Interstate 80 from Ashby Avenue, the district boasts an intermodal array of options for visitors including the Ashby BART and AC Transit bus lines, including Transbay bus stops with direct access to San Francisco.
The Lorin was founded as the unincorporated town or settlement of Lorin, the last stop before Berkeley along the Berkeley Branch line of the Central Pacific (later, Southern Pacific). In the early 1900s, the people of Lorin elected to be annexed to the City of Berkeley, and the name vanished slowly faded from use. Its historic character is reflected in its many beautiful old commercial buildings and charming residential neighborhoods that surround it.
The Lorin Business Association includes businesses, nonprofits, artists, and property owners located along Adeline Street from Ashby Avenue to the Oakland border.
The Association seeks to promote economic vitality through promoting positive business and commercial activity, streetscape improvements and the arts. We meet each month at the Ed Roberts Center. Please look at the calendar of events for information regarding upcoming meetings.
You can't get closer to the University of California, Berkeley campus than South Berkeley, the neighborhood originally developed in the 1860s by the school’s predecessor, the College of California. The latter institution may be long gone, but the large, spacious, brown-shingled homes along Allston, Bancroft, Channing, and Dwight ways remain. Densely populated, the neighborhood contains some of the city’s oldest homes.
South Berkeley is a mix of students, longtime residents, businesses, and homes. The major thoroughfares are Telegraph Avenue, Bancroft Way, and Alcatraz Avenue, where street vendors, bookstores, record shops, and inexpensive eateries cater to students. Nightlife is abundant, thanks to the proximity to campus, Zellerbach Hall, and Downtown Berkeley.
Both the Ashby and Downtown Berkeley BART stations serve the neighborhood, as do a number of Alameda-Contra Costa Transit buses, making it a snap to get to downtown San Francisco, local airports, sports stadiums, and other locations in the Bay Area.
