The Downtown center offers an impressive address in the heart of Walnut Creek's business and retail district. Located within the prestigious California Plaza building, it features offices with views of a central fountain plaza, rolling hills and Mount Diablo. Walnut Creek is a business and entertainment hub for the neighboring cities within central Contra Costa County, due in part to its position at the junction of major highways. The Interstate 680 links it with Silicon Valley, while Highway 24 takes you to Oakland's busy port and San Francisco. Several corporates have put down roots along the dynamic '680 corridor' upon which Walnut Creek sits. Financial and legal services are offered by some of the center's immediate neighbors, but there's a mixed concentration of businesses to serve the city. Top local employers include healthcare facilities and print services. A rail station, hotels, restaurants and shops are nearby.
