LAGUNA COMMONS (PLN2013-00132): 41152 Fremont Blvd.

The Fremont City Council unanimously approved this project on 05/20/14, citing an unfilled need to provide affordable housing for very low and extremely low individuals and families as taking precedence over concerns about the height, architecture, and impact on surrounding businesses.

The Laguna Commons development proposed by Laguna Commons Associates is located on two properties - 41126 & 41152 Fremont Blvd. It is in the Irvington Community Plan Area.

Laguna Commons Associates is a joint venture of Allied Housing and MidPen Housing Corporation.

  • 64 affordable supportive housing rental units will be built on 1.5 acres.
  • There will be a single U-shaped building whose open side will face the south.
  • It will be 4 stories with a one-foot setback from the sidewalk.
  • The building will include 20 studio, 21 one-bedroom, 12 two-bedroom and 11 three-bedroom units.
  • There will be 64 parking spaces on the south and east sides of the building.
  • This will require a General Plan Land Use Designation amendment from Commercial/Mixed-Use to Urban Density Residential.

    There was a Community Courtesy meeting on July 17th.
