HACIENDA SEES STRONG CLOSE TO 2016
PLEASANTON, Calif. — Hacienda is continuing to see increases in occupancy year over year with a further net gain in tenant activity. The current trend of positive absorption is on track to continue into the new year.
“2016 has been nothing short of a great year for Hacienda,” says James Paxson, Hacienda's general manager. “With new construction in both the office and residential sectors, investment in existing facilities, infrastucture improvements in the form of a new recycled water system and telecommunications upgrades, and strong leasing over the last several months, Hacienda is ending the year well. What is particularly exciting is that we continue to increase occupancy while expanding our base of occupancy with new facilities.”
Major Business Activity
Here is a summary of just some of what has gone on in Northern California’s largest mixed-use development in the past three months:

Oracle UX Team Collaborates with NASA on Tool for Asteroid Watchers
The Oracle Applications User Experience (UX) team has created an automatically generated online newspaper, the Minor Daily Planet, which collects the day’s asteroid news for subscribers. Launched in August, it is a component of the NASA Minor Planet Center’s (MPC) Asteroid Data Explorer tool, which is itself the product of an earlier collaboration between the Oracle team and NASA that transforms the MPC’s dense collection of technical asteroid data into interactive, easy-to-understand charts.
“The project demonstrates how the work Oracle does in enterprise applications, where we’re looking at large amounts of information such as financial data or product information, mirrors many of the same questions that generally we have about life,” says Oracle Group vice president Jeremy Ashley. For example, he says, the need for users to understand very simply what they want to find, then be able to find it, and then be able to get more information—with as little trouble as possible—prompted the UX team to stress simplicity in the design strategy for Oracle’s enterprise apps. The team used the same focus on simplicity when helping to create the Daily Minor Planet.
“The Daily Minor Planet allows anybody with an interest in asteroids to participate very simply, easily, and directly,” says Ashley. “This is a philosophy we’ve been pushing with our other apps. It’s a basic human trait to be curious, and UX design should provide a path for users to get information that feeds that curiosity and answers questions.”
