2017 – Let’s Do the Numbers
The year is winding down and we’re reflecting on how the Bay Meadows community has transformed in 2017. And given that this is Silicon Valley, we’re going to rely on numbers to tell the story.
2,000 residents now living at Bay Meadows. They share harvest from the community garden. They shoot hoops in Paddock Park. They walk to grocery shopping at Whole Foods. They bike the local San Mateo trails. They stroll to Caltrain together on weekday mornings to go to work. They organize neighborly get-togethers. They work at nearby companies, such as SurveyMonkey. They … are an active bunch!
850 workers occupying offices at Station 4 and Station 3. With SurveyMonkey moved into its headquarters, more innovative companies followed, including Zuora and Ten-X. OpenText moved into its new offices on floors two and three of Station 3. By the end of 2018, Guidewire will locate in Station 2.
50 percent of SurveyMonkey workers commute via Caltrain. And that stat is accurate because it comes from a company that prides itself on accurate data.
417 townhomes are now built and occupied at Bay Meadows. The final community of townhomes, Meadow Walk from Shea Homes, sold out in 2017.
336 rental homes now open and occupied at Bay Meadows. In 2017, apartments in our next mixed-use buildings Quimby and The Russell quickly leased up.
175 extroverted pooches along with their owners enjoyed mixing at our seasonal weekly Twilight Tails in Landing Green Park.
38 Instagram snaps were taken of our Mirror Labyrinth sculpture at Bay Meadows. This whimsical sculpture by Danish artistic Jeppe Hein was installed in our Town Square early in the year.
21 meticulously crafted beers on tap at Fieldwork Brewing Company’s beer garden at Bay Meadows. Fieldwork was quickly joined by Blue Bottle Coffee and Tin Pot Creamery offering delicious treats and welcoming gathering spots in our Town Square. Next retail to open in early 2018: Roam Artisan Burgers and LIFT Fitness.

Walkscore.com rates Bay Meadows high on the list for walkable locations to live on the San Francisco Peninsula and for good reason! Why? Because we are steps from shopping (Hillsdale Center), groceries (Whole Foods), parks, a farmer’s market and an easy bike-ride from downtown San Mateo with its burgeoning restaurant scene. San Mateo’s shared Bay Bikes are on-site, so no need to own your own. And Caltrain is a quick stroll from anywhere in the neighborhood.
