Hillsdale - Newly discovered shining diamond

Hillsdale has long been a boring town back in 80's and 90's, however, the town has changed so much since 2010 and it's like a totally different neighborhood now. As of 2017, there are still lots of new developments happening in this community. San Mateo ranked #12 of top 100 best cities to live in 2015 and Hillsdale was the main driver behind the scene: - Hillsdale mall is now updated to build Cenipolis luxury movie theater and Pin Strike bowling alley with lots of new dining options. - - The bay meadow phase 2 new development has completed 60-70% of its original plan at this point - apartments and town houses are built, and retail spaces are also built and now being leased. - Lots of clean new parks are newly built. - Kaiser Permanente hospital and San Mateo police station are also in the neighborhood. With the police station, the neighborhood became much safer. Lots of people actually walking on the street even at midnight. - Schools are also getting better over time. It's still not the best school neighborhood in the Bay Area but with the current development rate, I expect there will be a huge change in the near future for the educational performance as well. - New tech giants are located near the Hillsdale Caltrain station as well. Some improvement opportunities are: - The median housing price has increased dramatically with those new developments. However, it's not as expensive as Palo Alto yet. - Traffics near the Hillsdale 101 Exit. Lots of traffics flowing into Foster City through this exit, which makes the exit almost always congested. - Air quality sometimes does not seem as good as the old days due to a lot of new developments/ constructions.
