"BART and Nice Apartments and Townhomes"

The appropriately named Union District is the Union City neighborhood where you will find the Union City BART station. It is shaped somewhat like a right triangle with the majority of the neighborhood taken up by the BART station, its parking lot and a shopping plaza. The shopping plaza has a Safeway supermarket and the usual set of stores you expect to find in a suburban shopping plaza.

Just to south of this area, in the middle section of Union District are a grouping of apartment complexes. These are mostly made up of newer units in 4-story buildings decorated in dark beiges and browns and muddy reds. A one-bedroom in one of these apartment buildings will run you around $1600; a two, $2000; and a three, $2500.

On the far southern end of the neighborhood where it narrows to a point, Union District is made up of townhomes. These are also those newer kinds of townhomes made in the Spanish mediterranean style with adobe walls and tiled roofs.

The median price for one of these townhomes is $450K with prices ranging from $188K to $617K. Though most are in the $300K to $500K range.

Schools in the area are about average (except for the Chavez Middle School which is below) and crime is relatively moderate.

Overall, this is not too bad a place to live and relatively affordable.
