Welcome to the City of Antioch a city on the move!
Antioch is one of California’s oldest cities, with a burgeoning population of professionals and skilled workers. While it is known as the “Gateway to the Delta” for its location on the banks of the San Joaquin River, it also serves as a gateway to the plentiful recreational features and cultural facilities of Northern California, particularly linking the San Francisco/East Bay region to Sacramento and the Central Valley.
With a population of over 114,000 residents and growing, the City of Antioch is the second largest city in Contra Costa County. Families with dreams of home ownership come to Antioch for its stunning neighborhoods, parks, and natural beauty. Market rate homes are available without the high price tag in comparison to the rest of the Bay Area. As the technology based economic expansion forces its way north and east from Silicon Valley and San Francisco hubs, job growth and increased property values are on the horizon. Throw in the State Route 4 widening project and the opening of the Hillcrest BART station into the mix, and it becomes easy to see how these economic trends and transportation improvements will increase demand for goods and services and be drivers for our economy in the long run.
