City Profile

Print

Located approximately 30 miles east of Los Angeles, Claremont is a prestigious community consisting of 35,000 residents and 140 acres of developed parks and tree-lined streets. The City’s development has always been closely associated with the academically acclaimed Claremont Colleges: a consortium of five undergraduate and two graduate higher education institutions. The community takes pride in its rich cultural, educational and architectural heritage, as well as its small-town atmosphere.

Known throughout the region for its stately and beautiful single-family homes (many of historical significance), Claremont also offers condominiums, townhouses, and apartment living to meet varied needs and lifestyles.

In balance with residential development, there are thriving commercial and major industrial centers in Claremont as well as the historical downtown "Village."

The City has a well-educated, professional, and skilled labor force; quality and diversified residential areas; and excellent educational and recreational facilities. These attributes—along with progressive, well-managed City government and intense interest in community and cultural activities—make Claremont an ideal place to live and to conduct business.
