Walnut Creek is a city in the midst of a tremendous transition. What was once a sleepy, distant suburb of San Francisco, is now a burgeoning center of commercial, retail and urban living. Over the past ten years, Walnut Creek has witnessed tremendous growth in the number of downtown residential units (both rental apartments and condominiums) being built and quickly occupied. Due to convenient access to public transportation (BART), Walnut Creek is viewed as a cost-effective alternative to living in San Francisco, yet still with easy access to high quality shopping, restaurants and schools.
