Fremont, Laguna Commons, Peninsula, San Francisco, Bay Area, MidPen HousingOn Thursday, November 3, the City of Fremont joined MidPen Housing, Abode Services, and federal, State, and county leaders to celebrate the grand opening of Laguna Commons, a brand new 64-unit affordable housing development located on Fremont Boulevard in the Irvington District. The event included self-guided tours of the property, remarks from project stakeholders, a dedication of the new community room to former Fremont Mayor Robert Wasserman, and a ribbon-cutting ceremony.

Laguna Commons was developed by MidPen Housing and Abode Services and partially funded by the City of Fremont. The complex offers affordable rental apartments to low-income families and individuals, including formerly-homeless veterans. Residents also receive on-site supportive services and access to the Robert Wasserman Community Room. Supportive services for residents include life skills training, job counseling, health and wellness programs, educational workshops, and an after-school program for youth. Laguna Commons also features several green building elements including resource-efficient landscaping, solar panels, and high-efficiency electrical and plumbing fixtures.

The City of Fremont is excited for Laguna Commons to join our community, proud of the collaboration that made this project possible, and committed to continuing to expand the availability of affordable housing in the community.
