East Bay Superbowl Party Update: Is Walnut Creek Denser Than San Francisco? Seems That Way in Some Places

Walnut Creek has four-story developments now? Isn’t this place sort of dense for a what’s supposed to be a leafy suburb?

Those are the questions you ask yourself as you search for the big screen with your name on it in the Great Big Suburban East Bay.

Is the bulk of San Francisco’s ParkMerced this dense?

    4-story buildings don’t mean high density:

    All right, well, the bulk of ParkMerced is just two-story and these Walnut Creek units have two basement levels…

    It may be similar in density to some parts of SF, but it won’t be the same. It’ll have much more parking, and everyone will drive wherever they go. The streets will be designed for high speeds, and while there will be token sidewalks, most people won’t use them, and walking routes will be circuitous. There won’t be many local small businesses– you’ll have to go to the nearest strip mall.

    PS: I wanted to find it on Google Maps to confirm or deny my assumptions, but I can’t. Link please?
