This pioneering development, organized to provide income for Stanford University on peripheral portions of its 8,800-acre campus, had great influence on the design of "industrial parks" throughout the United States and the world in the 1960s and 1970s. The San Francisco landscape architect, Thomas Church, designed the street medians within the Stanford Industrial Park as well as the grounds for Hewlett-Packard Corporation, Varian Corporation and General Electric Corporation buildings within it.
