The City of Fremont and Habitat for Humanity have started construction on Central Commons, a 30-home development that gives low-income families the opportunity to own their own home in Fremont. Homeowners are selected based on their ability to pay, need for housing, and willingness to partner and contribute numerous hours of “sweat equity” into the construction of their home.
Central Commons will include high quality, energy efficient condo-style homes with several different floorplans. The complex will also feature private decks and balconies, a large community area, and garage parking with added storage. Central Commons will be located on Central Avenue, which offers quick access to BART, Altamont Commuter Express (ACE), AC Transit, Interstate 880, and Interstate 680.
The official groundbreaking of the project will take place Friday, July 14, 2017. At that time, Habitat for Humanity will be looking for volunteers to help build the new homes. More details on the groundbreaking event and the volunteer opportunities coming soon.
