Finding affordable housing in Fremont is an ongoing challenge, but the good news is that there are new affordable units in the pipeline. Projects include:
Innovia – A 290-unit affordable rental project near the new Warm Springs/South Fremont BART station being developed by St. Anton Communities. Construction is underway and projected completion date is summer 2018.
Central Commons – A 30-unit affordable ownership townhome project being developed by Habitat for Humanity on Central Avenue. Construction on phase I is underway, with an anticipated completion date for the first units in mid-2018. Habitat for Humanity is now looking for volunteers to help build the new homes. (Volunteer opportunities are also available for company and group team building.) Click Here for volunteering information.
Mission Court Senior Apartments – A 90-unit affordable rental project under construction for seniors. (Formerly named Parc 55.)
Affordable units in these complexes will vary from development to development and are restricted to the following income levels based on area median income (AMI) figures released by the Department of Housing & Urban Development:
- Extremely low income (30% of AMI or below)
- Very low income (30% – 50% of AMI)
- Low income (50%- 80% of AMI)
