A small neighborhood in the city of Mountain View, California, The Crossings was originally a failing shopping mall, which was later transformed into a dynamic residential and commercial area. Major development started after the opening of the San Antonio Avenue Caltrain rail station. Located 30 miles from San Francisco, residences in the neighborhood are mostly cottages, condominiums, and townhouses. The compactly designed units are affordably priced in this high-value Silicon Valley area. With short commute times for residents, this walkable and bikeable neighborhood is an exemplary example of Mountain View's plans for transit-oriented development.
