Bay Meadows

San Mateo, CA

In answer to the San Francisco Peninsula’s explosive growth comes Bay Meadows, one of the single largest redevelopment sites in the Bay Area. Set alongside the Caltrain Station and Highway 101 and only a stone’s throw from the bay, this award-winning Transit Oriented Development (TOD) delivers the best of modern living in the form of a vibrant urban village. It features a superior-quality mixed-use neighborhood of residential homes, townhomes and apartments; green-designed, state-of-the-art, LEED Gold certified office buildings; a central plaza surrounded by retail and restaurants; and a flourishing community garden, ribbons of bike trails, acres of parkland and a new private high school.

We want to make a place of real lasting value – a whole place, a whole village that’s working on a number of legs that reinforce one another.

Local History

From airfield to famed racetrack where Seabiscuit raced to glory.

The history of Bay Meadows began in 1934 when William Kyne purchased the former airfield and turned it into a thoroughbred racetrack. Throughout its 75-year reign, Bay Meadows tested the mettle of some of the most famous horses in racing, including Seabiscuit, Citation and Coaltown. While crowds of up to 20,000 flocked to the track in the 1960s and early 70s, attendance plummeted by the 1990s – falling victim to changing demographics, online betting and live simulcasts. The last race was held on May 11, 2008.
