Community Focus: Why businesses are investing in Burlingame


Burlingame, a six-square mile coastal city located 16 miles south of San Francisco, is set to become the Bay Area’s next big thing in office and R&D real estate. In February 2017, Burlingame Point officially broke ground, paving the way for one of the largest business space development projects in the history of the San Francisco peninsula.

Situated on the Burlingame Waterfront, the modern corporate campus will deliver the best in structural design and technologies to attract the world’s most influential technology and life sciences enterprises to this part of the Bay Area.

The Burlingame Point is a testament to the waterfront area’s development potential. Xueqin Den, president of project developer Kylli Inc., acknowledges Burlingame’s unique qualities as a growth site.

“Our investment approach is focused on best-in-class real estate opportunities in growth markets,” Xueqin said. “Burlingame Point will become the new landmark for the Burlingame community.”

Upon completion, Burlingame Point will feature exceptional amenities such as restaurants, retail stores, on-site gyms, and day care facilities. The enhanced bayfront will also accommodate public access, offering adequate seating and decorative landscaping.

According to the developer, the up-and-coming business campus is just a sign of greater things to come for Burlingame.

“We see the Burlingame Waterfront as the new center for Bay Area business, with many new and inspiring real estate projects to follow.”
