The New Redwood City facility opening today is the third new hospital Kaiser Permanente has opened in Northern California this year. Kaiser Permanente began large-scale facilities work in 2002-2003 with the debut of a major hospital construction effort in Northern California. The main thrust of the program was to create or enhance facilities to embrace new technologies and other advanced features of modern health care. Another component of that work involved seismic upgrades to meet newer, more stringent requirements that were enacted by the state after the Loma Prieta and Northridge earthquakes.

Thank you to Jaime for this beautiful photo share of the homes in the Parkway Estates neighborhood. If you have not yet had the opportunity to view them, do it. Dress warm, park close by, walk the few short blocks, talk with all our neighbors – enjoy a bit of the season. Located off of Chestnut Avenue near Hillside Blvd. for those who may not know. It’s the ‘Lilac Lane’ of this decade.
Again, Big Thanks to our Parkway Estate neighbors and to each and every one of you who have put some sparkle into the holidays for everyone to enjoy. To view photos from our archives from last year’s Holiday Display at Parkway Estates please CLICK HERE
