San Mateo’s Bay Meadows revs up for next office building
By Nathan Donato-Weinstein
Three months after Bay Meadows landed its first commercial office tenant, developer Wilson Meany and owner Stockbridge Capital are aiming to repeat the recipe for success.
To that end, they’re breaking ground on Station 3, the San Mateo mixed-use village’s second office building, without a tenant in tow. That’s the same strategy undertaken on Station 4, which scored SurveyMonkey less than a year after construction started on a speculative basis.
“Tenants just need to see a clear path to occupancy,” said Wilson Meany partner Janice Thacher. When construction began on Station 4, “People believed it was real, and they could see we would deliver in a window of time that was reasonable.”
Construction begins on Bay Meadows’ Station 3 Office

Bay Meadows owner Stockbridge Capital and developer Wilson Meany broke ground this week on Station 3, the latest office building in the redevelopment of the former racetrack in San Mateo.
The 174k SF Class-A office building, located at 2850 S Delaware St, is next to Station 4, the 199k SF office building under construction and already entirely pre-leased by SurveyMonkey. SurveyMonkey will move into Station 4 in early 2017.

Bay Meadows to break ground on office building next to SurveyMonkey’s new headquarters
Adjacent to the future headquarters of SurveyMonkey, Station 3 is the next office building to be constructed at Bay Meadows in San Mateo at the Hillsdale Caltrain stop. Owner Stockbridge and developer Wilson Meany announced today that they are breaking ground on the 174,000 square feet, Class A office building designed by HOK Architects.
Station 3, located at 2850 South Delaware Street, is the second of five planned office buildings at the 83-acre mixed-use community in San Mateo – all of which are being leased by Newmark Cornish & Carey.
The world’s leading online survey platform, SurveyMonkey, recently leased the entire 199,000 square feet of Bay Meadows Station 4, which is currently under construction and scheduled for occupancy in January 2017. With a planned 780,000 square feet of office space, Bay Meadows Station is the largest new Class A development on the San Francisco Peninsula. The offices are situated on a street that will feature storefront retail, cafes, a biergarten and outdoor social spaces in the midst of an urban village. With its central location, Bay Meadows is equally accessible to workers from San Francisco, Silicon Valley and the East Bay.
