Greater Silicon Valley Featured in Comstocks
December 23, 2014
Greater Silicon Valley is featured in the latest issue of Comstock’s magazine, a monthly business magazine based in Sacramento. In the article Greetings from Greater Silicon Valley the many reasons why San Joaquin County is becoming known as Greater Silicon Valley are explored in depth.
Here are three game-changing reasons your business can thrive in Greater Silicon Valley that we would like to highlight:
Unique, master-planned communities such as River Islands provide a high quality of life for your employees to live and work without the commute.
Large, “shovel-ready” industrial and office sites. Plenty of affordable start-up and expansion space with business-friendly permitting processes.
We’re close to everything. An ACE commuter rail line provides a fast, relaxing, productive commute from Silicon Valley. A complete rail, air and deep-water infrastructure makes it easy to ship your products locally and around the world.
As noted in the article:
With all this business and residential growth at its borders, northern San Joaquin County — Greater Silicon Valley, if you will — is poised to grow from a less-expensive offshoot of the Silicon Valley and fully tap into the economic motherboard of the Bay Area.
Recognizing that fact, in 2013 the U.S. Census Bureau added Stockton and Lodi to the San Jose-San Francisco-Oakland Combined Statistical Area. (A CSA is the next-larger snapshot of a region, one-up from an MSA, or Metropolitan Statistical Area.) The CSA’s population in 2013 was 8.5 million, the No. 5 CSA in the country, trailing only New York, Los Angeles, Chicago and Washington, D.C., in population.
