Nestled against the northeastern slope of Mt. San Bruno in northern San Mateo County, the City of Brisbane is known as a charming small town with a rural flavor surrounded by outstanding metropolitan amenities. The comfortable marine climate avoids the fog so prevalent in San Francisco, creating an idyllic atmosphere for growth and expansion. While residential development is on the rise, the city already claims a significant economic base of manufacturers and services.
The local economy blends manufacturing with a number of leading electronics firms and printing companies. In fact, Brisbane has emerged as an employment hub between San Francisco and its international airport along the U.S. Highway 101 corridor, welcoming a considerable daytime population of non-residents. A combination of available land, the award-winning Brisbane Marina, local employment opportunities, and a prime location in the Bay Area are sure to keep Brisbane on the list of growing communities.
