I saw several of this beautiful flowering tree at a strip mall parking area in Union City, CA. Does anyone know its name?

Looks a lot like Magnolia 'Rustica Rubra', though there are more than a few of this style/color of bloom. I'm also unfamiliar with all the selections that can be grown successfully in the SF Bay area - which I imagine are legion.

If you are able to, post more images of the WHOLE plant, which can often provide information about the species that just the flower doesn't supply.
