How much work is left for the Bay Meadows? Construction has been going on there for years, but, correct me if I'm wrong, I remember seeing a huge post here of someone who went touring the Bay Meadows and it looked plenty completed to me. Is there some sort of map of the entire proposed neighborhood that I could look at?

I think it was my post you are referring to, and the last time I was there it seemed about 2/3 done. Here is a rendering of the whole thing completed:



here is google maps, which is pretty up-to-date. the brown patch at the bottom is the one you can see being built in the last pic from my last post, and the one on the left is from the previous pics

Thank you for the updates! I was also reading about the new Hillsdale station and 25th Ave grade separation project; I had noticed while riding Caltrain that there were roads that seemed to dead-end at the tracks but looked like they were intended to eventually cross. This neighborhood is shaping up to be something else!

Also, is the development around Hayward Park related, or is that something separate?

right, eventually three streets (25th, which currently crosses at-grade; and 28th and 31st, which currently dead-end) will pass under the tracks.



... and Hillsdale station will be moved north to 28th Ave. I seem to remember that there is a bunch of development planned for the west side of the tracks as well.

Hayward Park development is separate. What is under construction now is Station Park Green, about 600 units. Caltrain also was trying to put something together for its parking lot on the site, and it looks like one more small project is also in the works.

Thanks for all the pictures and info! I know there was talk of closing Hayward Park for a while, and now that Hillsdale is being moved even closer to HP, do you think that will be considered again despite the new developments? San Mateo is the only city that has three Caltrain stations, I believe.

the tone of all the articles I read is that, because of the new developments, they won't close HP. most trains that aren't locals do already skip HP, and if I had to guess, I imagine that is how they will leave it. once the electric trains are running, stopping takes a bit less time.

Thanks for the info and quick replies timbad

Here are some updates from the projects in my Mountain View megapost earlier:

4880 El Camino
Excavation continues on this five story condominium:


The Sobrato development in Downtown Mountain View was just a hole in the ground when I last posted. There was a huge concrete pour a few weeks ago and is now rising fast:

They're going pretty fast with that building in downtown Mountain View. I walk by there every morning before work.

They actually do pretty well when it comes to infill development downtown:



You may have noticed THIS GUY which is visible from Highway 17:





There's a HUGE townhome project partway done just north of it:





And RIGHT around the corner:

Thank for you posting updates regarding Campbell @yakumoto!

I don't go down there (Milpitas area for me) so it's nice to see all that development!

8 cities fit for Amazon's second headquarters

San Jose mentioned here as a potential location for Amazon, which I think would be a reasonable candidate, but I don't think Amazon is looking for another West coast HQ.

Most importantly the A’s plan to build a new ballpark in Downtown Oakland!

Great news for Oakland. Finally at least one team is committing to staying. That would be just sad if they lost all three of their pro sports teams within a matter of 5 years.
