Event Details

Join SPIRE for a planning primer and walking tour of Bay Meadows, a master planned redevelopment of 83 acres of a former horse racetrack into a progressive transit-oriented neighborhood set alongside the Hillsdale Caltrain Station in San Mateo. 

Over 15 years in the making, Bay Meadows is one of the single largest redevelopment sites in the Bay Area on Caltrain, which boasts current entitlements for 793,000 square feet of Class A office space, 1,145 multi-family residential units, 93,000 square feet of retail space, a 450-student private high school and 18 acres of green park and open spaces. This award-winning transit-oriented development reflects the changing dynamics between how people want to live, work and play in the form of a vibrant urban village. 

Hosts Darcy Smith ('98), Principal Planner with the City of San Mateo, and Brandy Bridges ('95, MBA '03), Bay Meadows Project Manager with Wilson Meany, will provide SPIRE members an overview of Bay Meadows, the exhaustive planning effort behind it, and an update on its final phase. Afterwards, SPIRE members will embark on a walking tour to see land planning principles at work, including three new parks, pocket open spaces, a view corridor connection and an urban high school, three residential apartment complexes containing 336 completed units, retail space, 441 townhomes and single family homes either completed or under construction, and three large office buildings.

A reception will follow at Fieldwork, a popular beer garden for some craft brews (the sampler flights are amazing), bites and bocce ball along the Delaware Street "social street" corridor.
