Bay Meadows, San Mateo, CA 94403

Bay Meadows, San Mateo located in Mid Silicon Valley

Bay Meadows Urban Village

Bay Meadows is the first community of its kind in San Mateo County.  The former 83.5 acre horse race track has been developed into the epitome of an urban village: walkable, bicycle friendly, transit oriented, mixed-use environment providing both housing and jobs.

Phase I and Phase II of Bay Meadows provides all of life’s needs on two contiguous sites.  Cars are completely unnecessary in this all-inclusive town within a city.

Plan Approval Phase I

In 1997, the Bay Meadows Specific Plan was approved which allowed redevelopment of the barn and practice track area (commonly referred to as “Phase I”) with office, residential, and retail uses.

Plan Approval Phase II

In 2005, the Bay Meadows Specific Plan Amendment was approved for redevelopment of the main track area (commonly referred to as “Phase II”). The Specific Plan Amendment provided the framework for a transit-oriented development (TOD) with compact high density office, retail, and residential development within a short walking distance of Hillsdale CalTrain station.

The development includes approximately 800,000 square feet of office space, 1,066 residential units and 100,000 square feet of retail space.

Phase II Still Under Construction

Home builders Shea Homes and TRI Pointe Homes

January of 2016, Shea purchased the last remaining piece of land for residential construction at the Bay Meadows site: 1.6-acre site called The Avenue.  It’s approved for 31 new units.

Shea is building the 74-unit Meadow Walk, and completed the 93-townhome Lansdowne and 80-unit Brightside.

The balance of residential units – to be built on top of parking – are being built by Wilson Meany and Stockbridge themselves.

Wilson and Stockbridge are also currently building two mixed-use projects:  “Rendezvous” and “The Russell” – that will contain 228 units between them and 11,380 square feet of ground floor retail.

Nueva School

Nueva School, home to 9th through 12th grade students

In 2012, The San Mateo Daily Journal reported, “Nueva School in Hillsborough had entered an agreement to purchase property on the Bay Meadows site,” officially opening in August 2014.

The Nueva School – founded in 1967 – then served students in preschool through eighth grade at a 33 acre campus in Hillsborough.

Its Bay Meadows location is home to the Upper School division of grades 9 through 12; Lower and Middle School divisions remain at the Hillsborough campus.

“Nueva teachers encourage intellectual depth and rigor, hold high expectations for students, and help each child grow to his or her potential.”  They do this through their specialized formula of Social-Emotional Learning, Design Thinking and Engineering.  Specifically, their technology program provides a focus of integrating resources and tools into projects and disciplines using the same hardware and software used by professionals in the workplace.
