Bay Area Real Estate


San Lorenzo started as part of Don Guillermo Castro’s 28,000-acre land grant from the Mexican government for his service in the military. Castro later lost all of his land to gambling debts. In 1850 the Gold Rush was in full swing. Numerous people came to the Bay Area and stayed rather than go to the Sierras to try to find gold. A large number of those people ended up squatting on land around San Leandro Creek. The residents soon named the community Squattersville. But by 1853 the name of San Leandro was being used and in 1854 the federal government accepted San Lorenzo as a postal station. Old San Lorenzo was a wealthy community with large mansions and ranches. The main town was located at the famous Four Corners - at Telegraph Road (now Hesperian Blvd.) and Main Street (now Lewelling Blvd.). From the late 1800s to the early 1900s this area was known for fruit and vegetable farming, food processing and the shipment of said product to San Francisco.

The community population in 1942 was over 1,500. World War II happened and in 1944 David Bohannon's Greenwood Corporation came to construct 1,459 new homes called San Lorenzo Village on top of the orchard and truck farms. Since then the town has been a bedroom community for those working around the Bay Area.
San Leandro is easy to get around with Interstates 80 and 238 very close by. The nearest Bay Area Rapid Transit (BART) system station is the Bay Fair station located on Hesperian Blvd. Major airports are easy to get to by car or BART. Oakland International Airport is 10 minutes to the north, San Francisco International is 20 miles to the west and San Jose International is 30 miles to the south.
