Attract & Grow Green Businesses

Economic development staff the Green Corridor cities are poised to provide location assistance to growing firms and to green companies interested in siting in the East Bay according to specifications.

The Green Corridor has an extensive real estate network and database of opportunity sites that span 8 cities. These sites are well suited for a variety of space needs, including light manufacturing, warehousing, assembly, office, R&D, production, and distribution.
