"Acres of car dealerships and IT companies"

Put simply, Baylands is where people go to work for IT companies and other such firms. It is also notable for the Fremont Auto Mall, a long strip of land hosting a plethora of car dealerships (Mercedes, Porsche, Toyota, BMW, etc.) along Cushing Parkway. However, the district itself is an almost uninhabited, rarely visited neighborhood (other than for work) within Fremont. According to the 2010 US Census, Baylands is sparsely populated, averaging 5 people per square mile.

While Baylands hardly has a residential area, it bears land to a couple dozen nondescript, one-story business quarters more commonly known as the Pacific Commons. More specifically, the district hosts a handful of IT companies, electric company firms and other corporate facilities plotted on large, parking-friendly campuses. There is also a newly built commercial area within the neighborhood’s limits. The shopping hub is complete with modern, colorful building fronts and neatly landscaped aesthetics.

Geographically speaking, Baylands is bounded by Highway 880 to the east and portions of the San Francisco Bay to the west. The area spans about 14 square miles, including acres of unincorporated grasslands anchoring the western edge of the city closest to the San Francisco Bay. The district’s living quarters are concentrated on the northern tip of the district. If you’re looking to buy, the bulk of homes on the market cost anywhere from $500,000 to $750,000. Also, those residents typically rake in about $110,000 in annual income. Demographically speaking, the neighborhood is fairly diverse, split evenly between asian, hispanic and white residents.
