A strong sense of a community with an urban feel creates a perfect lifestyle for ages 55 and better.
Foster City lies just 25 minutes south of San Francisco, providing a nice escape from the busy city but still within reach of urban convenience. In the heart of Foster City, you’ll find a premier age-qualified community unlike any other. Foster Square, providing a new way to live for individuals who have been there, done that and are still looking for more out of life.
The community was designed with walkability in mind so that residents are able to easily get to where they need to go. Because Foster Square is set in a mixed-use community, homeowners can easily access restaurants, retail plazas, parks and waterways by simply following along one of the many interweaving paseos throughout the community’s landscape. With an emphasis on a social lifestyle that’s filled with fabulous amenities, Foster Square is proof that life can just keep getting better.
Whatever you want to do, whether it’s going for a walk around the lagoon, lunching with a girlfriend at one of the many trendy restaurants, cafés or bistros, enjoying a concert in the park or doing some shopping, it’s all within walking distance! Convenient and upscale grocery stores such as Whole Foods and Costco are less than a quarter mile away. Enjoy a night out at the Fish Market Restaurant, El Torito, BJ’s Restaurant and Brewhouse or grab some sushi! Meet up with your neighbor for coffee at the Starbuck’s on site, or head over to the Target that’s less than a mile away.
The Foster City Lagoon offers a perfect spot for picnicking, swimming, paddle boarding, kayaking or an electric boat ride, while the nearby Hillbarn Theater offers some culture with a great selection of live shows and musicals. If you end up just strolling around, be sure to look up and check the trees — Foster City is home to thousands of birds due to the extensive waterways and protected lagoons, making it a birdwatcher’s delight. Craving to get out on the green? The Peninsula Golf and Country Club is less than five miles away. No matter what errands you have, whether for fun or out of necessity, getting them done will come with ease.
Foster Square was designed to create a sense of community with an Urban Feel. Once completed, residents will be able to enjoy the Town Square and Retail Plaza which will include over 30,000 square feet of retail space composed of a variety of restaurants and shops. The plaza will also be home to farmers markets, street fairs and festivals that will enhance the Foster Square living experience.
The central street of Foster Square was designed to lead both vehicular and pedestrian flow from the park and recreation center at Shell Blvd, culminating at the retail center. A network of pedestrian oriented streets and paseos compliment the connectivity of the community with its surrounding amenities, and decorative paving and convenient gathering spaces enhance the experience for both residents and visitors alike.
The condominiums at Foster Square will be a unique collection of homes boasting open floorplans and great design. Thanks to Lennar’s Everything’s Included® program, residents will enjoy stylish features such as stainless steel appliances, granite slab kitchen countertops, home automation technology and more all at no added cost.
