Founded in 1976, CSTDA Insurance Services is a highly successful independent insurance agency, specializing in commercial insurance services for corporate clients and some individual business people. The company provides a variety of business insurance lines, in addition to medical and dental insurance.
CSTDA Insurance was located in Hayward for many years, but most recently was based in Newark — before signing its long-term lease for 42840 Christy Street, Suite 235, in Fremont Business Park. The company will occupy approximately 1,275 square feet of space.
The biggest attraction for Will Davi of CSTDA was Fremont Business Park’s location off Auto Mall Parkway near the Pacific Commons shopping center. “The offices are in a great part of Fremont,” Davi said. “We serve clients in Silicon Valley as well as the East Bay and around the rest of the Bay Area, so Fremont is ideally situated for us.”
Davi also likes the complex itself. “The buildings are well laid out, and the offices have a nice homey feel to them,” noted Davi. “The other tenants are primarily businesses much like ours, so it’s great to be working side-by-side with like-minded business people.”
Becoming a Part of TEAM Christy
TEAM Christy will also give CSTDA Insurance Services the opportunity to meet monthly with other tenants to discuss common challenges and brainstorm solutions, learn more about each other’s businesses to be able to refer clients to one another, explore joint marketing opportunities in traditional as well as new media such as social networking, and attend informative seminars on topics of broad interest to business people.
TEAM Christy was created by Borelli Investment Company, which manages and markets the complex, and is available at no charge to all tenants.
Borelli Investment Company recently installed the control system for a sophisticated new heating, ventilation, and air conditioning (HVAC) system at Fremont Business Park that will ultimately offer numerous benefits to tenants. The solution will help control tenants’ utility expenses, while reducing wasteful energy consumption. Christy Street businesses will also have access to better environmental controls for their individual offices.
In addition, the Christy Street property manager will receive a more comprehensive set of data, so he or she can respond more efficiently to tenant needs. And both the HVAC provider and property manager will be able to troubleshoot, adjust, and repair the system remotely over the Internet — for fastest response.
The next step in the process is to replace a number of coolers that are integral to the air conditioning performance. An upgrade to the heating system will come later. Because it’s late May, it really shouldn’t be needed for a while, if the winter ever ends!
