Driven by the idea of a planned community on the San Francisco peninsula, T. Jack Foster placed a $200,000 bet on Brewer's Island to build a thriving new city in 1958. The rest is history, and the City of Foster City is now home to almost 34,000 residents and a wide array of industry--including some of the bay area's elite businesses, such as VISA and Gilead Sciences. Conveniently located between San Francisco and San Jose, the City of Foster City prides itself on its well-planned neighborhoods, shopping centers, and most importantly a supreme quality of life.

The home of so many great careers.
