Historic West Berkeley Building to Be Reborn as ‘Berkeley Kitchens’

A long-abandoned historic building at the corner of West Berkeley’s Eighth and Carlton streets (2701 8th St.) is about to see new life as what the owner says will be a first-of-its-kind food production facility. Construction is underway on what will eventually be twelve commercial incubator kitchens under a single roof, each one leased to some up-and-coming food entrepreneur — jam makers, confectioners, nut butterers, and the like.

The tentative name for this unique facility: The Berkeley Kitchens.
