The Hopyard Center is a prestigious and easily recognizable address that's close to several business parks along the Interstates 580/680 business corridor. Globally known companies such as Oracle and Kaiser Permanente are among those that have based themselves in Pleasanton. Professional, scientific, and technical services are major employers, as are those involved with computer and electronic products, finance and insurance, and telecommunications. Pleasanton has a lively historic downtown area, with restaurants, specialty retailers and service businesses. The center is less than two miles from the Stoneridge Mall, a large upscale mall featuring high-end anchor stores as well as scores of others, but good hotels and restaurants are also just down the street. The BART rail system provides a commuter link with San Francisco.
