• San Lorenzo

    Locale

    San Lorenzo, also known as San Lorenzo Village, is a well-established community in unincorporated Alameda County.  The community pushes west from Cherryland to the Bay. The Eastern boundary is near Meekland Ave where San Lorenzo meets Cherryland and the northern and southern borders are Lewelling Ave and Bartlett Ave.

    San Lorenzo Then

    San Lorenzo is located on the Rancho San Lorenzo Mexican land grant given to Guillermo Castro in 1841.San Lorenzo was mostly farmland, a significant center of production of fruit and flowers, from the mid-19th century to the mid-20th century. Many of the early inhabitants have been laid to rest in Pioneer Cemetery, including Moses Wicks, who brought oysters from the East Coast to be “planted” in San Leandro Bay.

    In 1944, David Bohannon's Greenwood Company began construction of San Lorenzo Village, a tract of two- and three-bedroom homes for workers in the East Bay's war industries. San Lorenzo Village was one of the nation's first planned communities, with parcels designated for schools, churches, parks, and several retail centers, along with Homes Association to govern the development. San Lorenzo has been a desirable place to live since 1847.

    San Lorenzo Now

    San Lorenzo is still characterized by a strong sense of community and an abiding connection with its earlier times. Claimed by some to feature the best weather in the East Bay, San Lorenzens and visitors alike make great use of the parks, walking paths and creek access to soak up the sun. Home ownership reflects a deep pride in community, and retailers and service providers are bringing fresh appeal to the business district.

    San Lorenzo Tomorrow

    Economic development will be the catalyst to a “new-look” in the business district, possibly adding more new specialty restaurants as San Lorenzo adds to its reputation for being an eclectic “foodie” destination. Eagerly anticipated by locals, a new state of the art Library will be opening in late summer 2015 and a new park being built by PG&E at Grant and Washington is slated for opening in Early 2015.
