Shea Homes already has an impressive list of new home communities in the Bay Area and we’re excited to announce our newest location in San Mateo, CA.
Construction may begin as early as summer 2012, with model homes and sales launching in 2013. We’ll offer 8 beautiful floor plans with a mix of 2, 3 and 4 bedroom homes from 1,150-2,200 square feet. This community named Landsdowne will be perfect for individuals and family who seek to live in an environmentally friendly atmosphere while staying close to the city of San Francisco and all the innovative companies in the area.
The SF Registry reports, “Signing Shea Homes exemplifies the positive momentum Bay Meadows is generating, and we are very excited to get construction underway on two residential neighborhoods this summer, with sales starting in late 2012,” said Christopher Meany, partner at WMS. “Shea Homes has long been recognized as one of ‘America’s Best Builders,’ and its progressive approach to anticipating consumer demand is perfectly aligned with Bay Meadows.”
What can you expect to find around Landsdowne?
Well first of all this community is an urban village between San Francisco and San Jose on the Caltrain commuter rail line. Accessibility is key to Landsdowne and Bay Meadows provides easy access freeway entrances and many opportunities for public transportation.
San Mateo also boasts about their shopping options, notably Hillsdale Shopping Center. Find your favorite store whether it is Coach, Nordstrom, Macys, Williams Sonoma, or Foot Locker. Check out the full list of available shopping options here. Nearby grocery shopping includes stores like Trader Joes and Whole Foods, not to mention the list of available restaurants within the area whether you like burgers or sushi, there is an eatery for you.
It’s just a 30 minute drive to Union Square in San Francisco or a 30 minute drive in the other direction to the heart of San Jose. Or, for the world travelers (or frequent business travelers), how about a 15 minute drive to the San Francisco International Airport. And who can forget the Caltrain station right near the community.
Construction is slated to start in early 2013 for a 400 student private school located at the old Bay Meadows race track site. The school offers small class sizes, project-based learning and special teachers in a number of subjects.
