Chula Vista is the second largest city in San Diego County and the 21st largest in the state. Located in South Bay, south of National City and north of Tijuana, the city is home to more than 165,000 residents. It is known for its small town charm and family friendly environment.
The name means "beautiful view," and the town was laid out in 1887 during California's first real estate boom. The new town attracted residents from across the United States, Canada and England. Many planted fruit orchards and citrus groves. At one time the city was once known as the "Lemon Capital of the Nation." It was incorporated as a city in 1911.
Chula Vista is a town in transition. Once known as a bedroom community with a strong collection of small businesses, Chula Vista is now attracting multi-national corporations and strong redevelopment partners.
High tech companies like Hitachi, DNP America and Leviton are either open or in the process of building new facilities in the Eastlake Business Center. These companies find the area a good location from which to manage their manufacturing and distribution operations both in the United States and in Mexico. The companies are also attracted by affordable land and a strong pool of workers. UPS, the U.S. Post Office, a day care center and a church are also tenants.
