Mare Island

Mare Island was the nation's first naval station on the West Coast, commencing operations in 1854. Since its closure in 1996, the community has rallied around the island's conversion to Vallejo's newest neighborhood. The City of Vallejo is partnering with The Nimitz Group and Southern Land Company (their developer) to develop and manage the Island. Mare island is now home to more than 100 businesses, Touro University and a thriving residential community.

The Nimitz Group

The Nimitz Group and Southern Land Company, the master developer of approximately 650 acres on Mare Island, offers both residential and commercial space. To find available office, retail, industrial or maritime space for lease, visit their Commercial Properties webpage a
