Cupertino, CA City

The Junipero Serra Freeway separates the two halves of the Cupertino City Center. It’s borders are made up roughly of the West Valley Expressway to the west, Randy Lane to the east, Homestead Road to the north and Dunbar Drive to the south. A large portion of the residences in this community consist of The Markham Apartments; luxurious and recently renovated, these apartments are popular in the area.

The nearest shopping center is Homestead Square, conveniently located at the corner of the JunipCUPERTINO-CITY-CENTERero Serra Freeway and North De Anza Boulevard. It features a Safeway for grocery shopping, a Cupertino Inn, the Star One Credit Union, Rite Aid Pharmacy and Goodyear Auto Service Center. This community only has one tiny park in its borders: Franco Park. Though small, it features a jungle gym and two playgrounds, in addition to a large cement walking path surrounding the entire area.

Homestead Road is the nearest thoroughfare of shopping and dining. The intersection at North Stelling Road is particularly packed with options. Quick eateries here include Szechuan Garden Expres, Round Table PIzza, Super Burrito, Subway, KFC, McDonalds, Shanghai Garden and Thai Delight, a classy space for inspired Thai food.

A big reason people like to live in this community is that they work at Apple, which is located within it on Infinite Loop. Employing 16,000 persons and planning to add 10% in the next few years, living in the homes immediately surrounding the current campus and the Apple Campus 2, which is being constructed, is huge source of convenience. Over the last five years the number of Cupertino residents employed by Apple has increased 18%. The company will demolish nearly three million square feet of its old campus for its new campus, which houses, among many other things, 100,000 square feet devoted to a fitness center alone. It is no surprise, furthermore, that the homes surrounding Apple rarely sell for less than a million if at all.
