Even in this era of development and creation of marvelous new housing and dwellings, the fully furnished homes in RUMI @ KING stand apart. 

On the edge of Downtown Berkeley, the RUMI @ KING sits at the gates of Berkeley’s epicenter, inspiring playful freedom and inviting you to wander into a whole new world. With the vast majority of units featuring a stellar view of the Bay, hills, or town - or the stars at night - the RUMI will create for you an atmosphere of peace and tranquility. With a quiet, yet palpable, energy inside its walls, you’ll feel focused, purposeful, and positioned to live in harmony with a lifestyle that supports both joyful play and the comforts of modern living.


While the units feature beautiful finishes (quartz counters and exquisite shaker cabinetry collections), plentiful amenities (in-unit W/D and stainless steel high-end appliances), and expansive living rooms (with luxury flooring throughout), the RUMI @ KING also has value in mind with rent pricing and debut specials that compete for your patronage. And, with twenty-one distinct floor plans, there is ROOM for everyone. 


We invite you to release your inhibitions, take the alternative route, experience the unexpected.

Call us. Email us. Walk on in.

You can check it out anytime you like, but - a word of warning - you may never leave.

The friend is at the door.
You are the lock his key fits.

Wander + Play

Nestled within the niche neighborhood of University Avenue and bordering Downtown Berkeley, the flavors of each block are known to be as different as our unique floor plans at the Rumi! Known as the Gateway to Berkeley, the diverse walkable destination inspires taking the alternative route in finding an unexpected Coffee Shop or delightful frozen treat.  Walk outside the front door and experience unparalleled music and culture at the popular Freight & Salvage Theatre and The Back Room, both only minutes walking distance away. Play at AxeVentures, or Games of Berkeley, or the upcoming Berkeley Billiards Lounge, all just blocks away. Or, if you are traveling a bit farther, hop on BART, AC Transit, or a carshare - all just steps away.
