Silicon Valley's booming popularity shows no signs of waning as ever more wealthy tech kids, venture capitalists and start-up moguls flood its 3D printing boutique-lined streets. As summer comes to a close, so does construction on new condominium and apartment complexes where prospective buyers can soon call home.
Though housing markets remain competitive, and developers don't imagine their abodes will remain on the market for long, Menlo Park, Mountain View and Los Altos will get at least a few more living communities to house the Valley's burgeoning population. Following is the newest and soon-to-come in community living the Peninsula has to offer.
