Parkmerced’s Corporate Housing Program

We are pleased to announce the Parkmerced Resident Holiday Party raffle winners from our December 12th event:

  • 1st Prize: iPad Pro – Marisol O.

  • 2nd Prize: Godiva “Tower of Chocolate” – Vinay S.

  • 3rd Prize: Trader Joe’s Gift Card – Andrea C.

This raffle represents the first of many upcoming resident opportunities to engage with something new and exciting happening at our community. We are pleased to announce and celebrate the launch of our Corporate Housing Program.

“Corporate Housing” is a travel industry term used to describe furnished housing for longer short-term stays of a month or more that are less expensive than hotels and more customizable than shared economy offerings. Above and beyond other options, Corporate Housing offers a community based living experience for business residents placed on temporary assignment.

Corporate Housing can be arranged by an employee or by a business directly in support of their employees. It can also be booked by a third party business partner chosen by a company to support their Relocation, Travel, Project, or Intern lines of business.

Parkmerced has a lot to offer prospective Corporate Housing clients. With our unique location between downtown San Francisco and South Bay, Parkmerced is positioned as a viable commute option for residents traveling in both directions. This addresses the critical business need of proximity that’s top of mind for business clients: proximity both to the reporting work address as well as vibrant, liveable neighborhoods.

Moreover, the unparalleled size of Parkmerced allows for team or “block” placements, giving Corporate Housing clients a convenient and efficient density to the number of employees they can have stay with us.

Lastly, with our community revitalization and menu of events and activities hosted by Parkmerced for all residents, like the newly introduced “Boot Camp” wellness program and “Breakfast On The Go” amenity become a fitting enhancement for businesses choosing Parkmerced to house their employees. This level of care and creativity brings the Parkmerced Corporate Housing Program into cultural alignment with the best companies in the Bay Area, developing our community as a trusted extension of their own business.

To lead the integration of this new program, Parkmerced recently appointed Director of Corporate Housing, David Holt, to grow the relevancy of business partnerships and launch a platform of services and solutions that support the needs of the corporate sector. Many of therse needs align with the Parkmerced Vision for all: a healthier environment, usable open space, great retail, improved transportation, and better housing.

David comes to Parkmerced with over 18 years of local experience in hospitality and housing. David is joined in his new department by Parkmerced tenured Resident Services Coordinator Andrea Villa. Recently promoted to the role of Corporate Housing Liaison, Andrea will bring her many Parkmerced successes to the program in order to execute an equally high level of resident services to our new population.

When the clients who work with David and Andrea grow their own brands and develop their organizational talent by selecting Parkmerced to house their employees, they will be making a positive impact to the Parkmerced community for all and contribute in meaningful ways to the vibrancy, diversity, and quality of life here.

Our mission collaborating with the local business community on Corporate Housing is to add to the already dynamic mix of in-depth resources that are evolving Parkmerced and building a bright future for everyone who lives and works here. One of those resources is our diverse resident activity programming.

Stay tuned for details on the next Corporate Housing. In addition to delicious and beautiful prizes that showcase the bounty of spring fruit and flowers, a Vitamix-Professional Series 200 11-Speed Blender will be the top prize (value $449). Making fresh juice and smoothies at your Parkmerced home is just around the corner if you’re the lucky winner!

Speaking of winning, the success of the Corporate Housing Program at Parkmerced will be strengthened by the participation of our current resident population. We need your help! By sharing possible business opportunities to engage your employer with the program through an introduction to David, there are potential benefits to you, your company, and our community.
