Founder & Chairman
There is no company in the State of California more dedicated to creating opportunities for those who are generally underserved and disenfranchised than The Bakewell Company. They have the unique ability create quality projects while remaining committed to inclusion. Their project success is unparalleled all while creating economic opportunities for small and local businesses. I have seen firsthand how the Bakewell’s have created opportunities for local contractors, workers, architects, engineers, insurance brokers and law firms to participate in major projects they would ordinarily not have the opportunity to work on.
They get the job done and do it the right way…… each and every time.
“In the 50plus years of residence in the City of Seaside, I can honestly say that no other business entity/developer has lent the level of support for the people of Seaside than the Bakewell Co. (and the Bakewell family). The closure of Fort Ord dealt a real blow financially to the City and with the building of a classy, upscale subdivision called Seaside Highlands, the Bakewell Co gave Seaside residents a big level of hope that we could come back to financial security. When that Army Base was operational, our businesses flourished. Seaside Highland brought in new people, new ideas, new hope. The Bakewell Co. not only built classy homes but also remodeled an adjacent ballpark and built a community center with a family oriented park.”

“Danny Bakewell, Sr. had the vision for the Fair Oaks Renaissance Plaza Development long before anyone else saw the potential for a major retail center in Northwest Pasadena. His development at the corner of Fair Oaks and Orange Grove was the catalyst for all of the economic development and revitalization that has happened on both Fair Oaks Ave. and along Orange Grove and throughout Northwest Pasadena.”
