Hacienda is a mixed-use, planned unit development (PUD) of distinction and quality. For years it has been a place where people connect, innovation thrives and companies find a turn-key environment for growth. Hacienda was conceived and designed to provide convenience and value to owners, businesses, residents and employees who live, work and invest.
At 875 gross acres (730 net acres), Hacienda is the largest development of its kind in Northern California. Ideally situated at the junction of two major interstate freeways (I-580 and I-680), Hacienda is about halfway between San Francisco to the northwest and Silicon Valley to the southwest. Its central location, and convenient transportation options, makes for direct access to all of the Bay Area's commercial centers and the region's largest workforce.
Construction at Hacienda began in 1982, with the first office building completed in August 1983. Today more than eleven million square feet of mixed-use space is occupied by hundreds of companies. Under the current plan, Hacienda is expected to contain roughly 9.8 million square feet of commercial space with 2,509 residential units, and be the work or living location for over 33,000 people.
All infrastructure improvements for Hacienda are complete, and 8.28 million square feet of commercial space has been developed to date with 1,530 residential units. Land uses permitted by the PUD include 4 and 5 story midrise office, 2 and 3 story garden office, 1 and 2 story office and office/flex spaces, retail, warehouse and residential development including rental and for-sale projects in densities ranging from 8 to 35 units/acre.
Hacienda is located at the heart of the regional market known as the Interstate 580/680 Corridor. This market includes the San Francisco Bay Area suburban communities of Pleasanton, San Ramon, Livermore, Dublin, Danville and Alamo. The 580/680 Corridor has been home to some of the largest corporate relocations in the United States: Pacific Bell, 2.2 million square feet; Chevron, 2.0 million square feet; and, AT&T, 1.6 million square feet.
A thoughtful approach to the original planning, traffic mitigation, services, and aesthetics taken by co-developers The Prudential Insurance Company of America and Callahan Property Company laid the foundation for the innovation being enjoyed today at Hacienda. The development continues to garner the support of residents and elected officials. Unique programs and successes have been featured in The Wall Street Journal, The San Francisco Chronicle/Examiner, The San Jose Mercury-News and many other local, regional, and national publications. Virtually all of the Bay Area's television stations have featured Hacienda. Among its many accomplishments and recognitions, Hacienda was named one of “the ten best business parks in the world” by Site Selection Magazine.
The San Francisco Bay Area, propelled by the three Standard Metropolitan Statistical Areas of San Jose, Oakland and San Francisco, is arguably the most economically diverse region in the United States. The Bay Area is a world headquarters for computer technology and biotechnology, as well as home to more Fortune 500 companies than any other metro area in the West. Its seven million people produce what would be the world's 22nd-largest Gross National Product.
Hacienda reflects the dynamic, innovative nature of the San Francisco Bay Area in both its design and functionality. The mix of amenities, the quality of the infrastructure and the crucial value of location ensure the on-going growth of Hacienda and the success of the many businesses and people who make it their home.
