Rick Holliday, the developer who put up the first live-work lofts in San Francisco, is planning a new 25-acre campus development, twice the size of Pacific Bell Park. The development would include residential and office space targeted at the new media industry-types who want to be closer to San Francisco. Thanks to recent development, this older neighborhood is just a few blocks seconds from four highway ramps going in all four directions. Neighboring communitie -- San Francisco, Santa Clara Hacienda Park (in Pleasanton) and Berkeley-Emeryville are all built-out and gridlocked.
