The Express Is Moving to Oakland



The East Bay Express is moving to Oakland's Jack London Square area on May 16. The Express has been in Emeryville for nearly eight years, after spending its first 23 years in Berkeley. The paper is leasing office space at 620 Third Street, between Martin Luther King Jr. Way and Jefferson Street, three blocks west of Broadway. "We signed a six year lease, so we'll be staying there for a while," said Express co-owner Hal Brody. Brody noted that the Express signed its previous lease in Emeryville at the height of the dot-com bubble in spring 2001, so the move will help the paper's financial health.
