Construction milestones checked off at Bay Meadows

Roadways, cable, gas, electric, water, streetlights, even the sewer. Done and done! These are some of the elements comprising Bay Meadows’ infrastructure, which is now 100 percent complete. And that feat is thanks, in part, to Frank Vargas and his team from Townsend Management Inc. (TMI).

We caught up with Frank recently as he wraps up his multi-year work at Bay Meadows. Frank is an active member of the Operating Engineers Local 3 union. “The big heavy equipment that you see on construction sites? That’s us.”

Frank’s role at Bay Meadows started in 2008 beginning with the demolition of the racetrack. He was hired as field superintendent, overseeing all contractors. Frank says he’s pleased to pass on a great project to residents, visitors and others. Now, kids are playing in the parks, people are biking along the trails and it’s a real neighborhood.

While hundreds of Bay Meadows homes are complete, three parks are active and a new apartment complex is bursting with residents, construction continues at a rapid pace.
