" According to data released by the U.S. Census Bureau on Tuesday, the Tri-Valley, including Dublin, had the greatest Asian population growth increase in the East Bay.
The Asian population in Danville, Dublin, Livermore, Pleasanton and San Ramon increased by 160 percent, from 25,232 to 65,575. The state's overall Asian population grew by 31 percent over the past decade to reach 4.8 million. Dublin's Asian population grew by 297 percent from 3,101 in 2000 to 12,321 in 2010. It had the largest increase in the Asian population in the Tri-Valley. Only Brentwood and Knightsen in East Contra Costa had a larger percent of Asian growth in the East Bay, with Brentwood increasing from a population of 666 to 4,051 and Knightsen growing from 2 to 28."

The article mentions that the growth has been most rapid in Pleasanton, Dublin, and San Ramon. That is primarily because those cities are closer to the Silicon Valley and have had major building booms. The article mentions that Danville's Asian population has grown but at a slower pace. Places further North such as Lafayette are still very White with a handful of assimilated Asians.

Many Asians prefer new houses so Dublin and San Ramon have more of that with good schools.

Uh, the growth is happening because those cities are building housing. Danville and LaMoRinda towns don't want growth, which is why there's not a ton of construction. It's not rocket science, and race/ethnicity has little to do with it.

"“It’s such a dramatic story, but it’s an example of what cities try to do a lot,” Trauss said. To her, Lafayette had become an allegory for all cities that resist new construction and housing growth.

“The name (Lafayette) makes the place sound fancy and exclusive — which it is,” she said.

According to 2010 U.S. census data, Lafayette is 81 percent white, and data from the real estate tracking site Zillow show the median home price is almost $1.4 million. Still, the city’s population is on an upswing, increasing from 23,794 in 2010 to 25,473 in 2014"

Sonja Trauss who is a YIMBY(pro-growth) advocate suggested that the city of Lafayette was racist for opposing new development. Most of the people who live there are liberal so I think it's more class-ism if anything but it's an interesting topic. Rich White Liberals generally want to have it both ways.

Steve Sailer has written a lot about how rich White liberal NIMBY's have kept Marin White by blocking development.

Marin County to be immune from affordable housing law due to specialness, by Steve Sailer - The Unz Review

The thing about Dublin is that it is the most pro-growth city in the Bay Area but they are following the Southern CA sprawl model.

It seem as if the border of San Ramon and Dublin is some kind of invisible wall for demographics but it will be interesting to see what will happen when all the wealthy White Baby Boomers retire and see their homes.

Another issue is recent Chinese immigrants are superstitious about trees over their homes. Lamorinda, Alamo, and Danville and heavily wooded. What is so awful about these new housing developments in San Ramon and Dublin is they refuse to plant any mature trees.
