Why Companies Choose Concord

Companies consider multiple factors when choosing where to locate, and Concord ticks off all the boxes. From our location to our growing talent pool, Concord is ready to support your business growth and development.

Affordability – Concord commercial lease rates are on average 50-60% lower than other Bay Area cities, and our housing market is between 55% to 70% lower costs than the entire Contra Costa County, Santa Clara County, San Francisco County markets, and 18% lower than the Oakland market. That means extra money to enjoy the perks of living between the Bay and Mount Diablo.

Workforce – Concord is home to a highly-skilled workforce, a CSU campus and several medical-related colleges. Outside our city limits, we network with and attract talent from nearby UC Davis and UC Berkeley. Our workforce is growing in not only size, but in lucrative industries and skills.

Accessibility – Concord has two Bay Area Rapid Transit (BART) stations and three regional freeways with a counter-commute, which provides you superior access to customers and employees. Heading further out? Connect from Concord to Oakland, San Francisco, and San Jose International Airports.

Amenities – Concord boasts a suburban feel with urban amenities and entertainment, including community events like Farmers’ Markets, live music venues, outdoor recreation and restaurants serving styles of cuisines from all across the world.

Proximity – Concord is located just 29 miles from San Francisco, 20 miles from Oakland, 53 miles from Silicon Valley and 36 miles from the Napa Valley.
