Mountain View Community
Mountain View is located in the heart of Silicon Valley, 10 miles north of San Jose and 34 miles south of San Francisco. The city is bordered by Palo Alto, Los Altos, and Sunnyvale. The central location provides easy access to the entire San Francisco Bay Area and northern California cities.
Neighborhood parks, recreational facilities, quality education, and convenient shopping make Mountain View a most attractive residential community.
Private projects in Mountain View represent nearly two million square feet of commercial development capturing the economic expansion of Silicon Valley. Equally important is the magnitude of public projects, including an investment of almost 50 million dollars in the downtown area alone.
Mountain View maintains a strong and diversified local economy. Numerous high technology electronics companies, including several in the Fortune 500, as well as bio-technology firms are located in Mountain View. With only 4% of Santa Clara County's population, Mountain View is home to 11% of the county's top firms.
Business success stories are not limited to the electronics industry. Mountain View enjoys a lively mix of retail stores, executive offices, research and development firms, and professional services.
