In the 1960s, the waterfront community of Redwood Shores was built on top of reclaimed marshland of the San Francisco Bay. Before the community's development, the Leslie Salt Company possessed the land but ended up embroiled in a legal battle involving different government agencies and other business interests, and so the Leslie Salt Company was forced to sell it to Bank of America in 1972. Between the 1960s and late 1980s, the Marine World/Africa U.S.A., California theme-based amusement park called the location home. Nonetheless, it moved to Vallejo and became present-day Six Flags Discovery Kingdom. The open space left behind by Marine World was filled in by elegant, luxury single-family homes, townhomes, condominiums, and apartments. Additionally, other parts were converted into parks, preserved land, and Silicon Valley business parks and headquarters, such as the Oracle Corporation. What was once nothing but soggy marsh is now a community where its residents are surrounded by multimillion-dollar properties, various waterways, and lagoons. In addition to that, residents have access to inner waterways by way of private docks. Due to its classiness and style, Forbes placed Redwood Shores at the top of its list of "America's Top Selling Luxury Neighborhoods of 2009."
