Hacienda Business Park is a 900 acre (364 hectare) mixed used job center and housing development in Pleasanton, California.[1][2]

History[edit]

Approved in 1982 and ratified by Pleasanton voters in 1983,[3] the business park covers approximately 20 square blocks and features many multi-story office buildings and headquarters for mid-sized companies. It was envisioned by local and county planners as a location for office space that would be less expensive than that of Silicon Valley or San Francisco, close to affordable housing in Pleasanton and nearby Dublin as well as the homes of existing employees in the San Francisco Bay Area. In 2010, the city settled a lawsuit to allow for more affordable housing development in the area.[2]

Location[edit]

It is located adjacent to the Dublin/Pleasanton BART station.[1] Tri-Delta Transit's DX or "Delta Express" line also connects to this station, providing "luxury" commuter express bus service from the East County region of Contra Costa County including the cities of Antioch, Oakley, Brentwood, and Discovery Bay, as well as the town of Mountain House in San Joaquin County in the Central Valley.[4] San Joaquin Regional Transit District (SMART) provides commuter subscription service from the central valley on several lines in addition to local service provided by WHEELS and the County Connection.
