The Castro Valley Marketplace & Other Castro Valley Projects in Development
Craig Semmelmeyer
Past President Gary Howard introduced the main speaker, Craig Semmelmeyer, developer of the Castro Valley Marketplace.  Craig is a one of the newer members of the Rotary Club of Castro Valley. 
During his presentation, Craig showed many photographs of old Daughtrey's Building illustrating the state it had been in for many years and how the building has now been renovated into the Castro Valley Marketplace.  The old building contained a beloved business that had many loyal customers and staff.  Sadly, more recently, most people had seen the building as an eyesore on Castro Valley Blvd.  Craig said that he looked at the site for 15 minutes and understood its potential, but it took three years to realize that potential.
