Ardenwood - Offers the Best Work Life Balance

Updated: Feb 8

Everyone loves having a short commute. Who wouldn’t want to be able to wake-up and be in the office within 30 minutes. In the 1970s to early 2000s if you wanted a high paying job, you had to commute to San Francisco, the Peninsula or the South Bay. The city of Fremont is trying to change that and lure back high paying employers to the city. They are specifically targeting 4 areas in Fremont: Warms Springs, Bayside Industrial Zone, Fremont Downtown and City Center and Ardenwood Technology Park.

Workardenwood-shortens-commute-better-life-work-balanceing close to home, means If you ever forget something at home, you can easily go back and get it. There are very few relatively affordable communities that offer you a short commute, associated with a great schools like in Ardenwood.

Ardenwood Technology Park, which is nestled between Coyote Regional Park and Ardenwood and the Ardenwood Historic Farm, has been very successful in attracting employers and I suspect it has to do with the Ardenwood being the highest populated community (See Chart 1 below) and also having an above average concentration of computer scientist (See Chart 2 Below)

I predict that in the future, more and more employers will establish satellite offices in Ardenwood. This is because the area boasts one of the highest concentrations of professional workers in the Bay Area. The benefits for employees include reduced commutes, which in turn leads to happier and healthier work staff with more free time. Additionally, the proximity of a major regional park, with its many hiking and biking trails, provides employees with an easy way to de-stress during their off-hours.
