Peery Park, located northwest of downtown, is one of the older industrial areas of Sunnyvale. The Peery Park Specific Plan was adopted in 2016 to guide both private and public investment activities within the Plan Area, and to support and promote the type of investment that will enhance the beauty and vitality of this major City workplace district. The Specific Plan presents the community’s vision for the growth of Peery Park and contains planned actions and investments that the community intends to implement over time to stimulate and complement private investment in the district.

During the 1970s, the area known as Peery Park, located northwest of downtown, was developed primarily with Class B and C one-story concrete tilt-up buildings. Peery Park was largely developed by Peery-Arrillaga and later portions were redeveloped by the Irvine Company and others.
The approximately 446-net acre area is made up of over 180 properties, consisting of over 77% industrial uses, 12% commercial and less than 1% residential. The area is generally bounded on the north by U.S. Highway 101, the south by the railroad, the west by the City of Mountain View border and the east by Mathilda Avenue.
