New plans have been revealed to replace a portion of the Gateway Plaza shopping center with housing in Fremont, Alameda County. The project, located at 39200 to 39300 Paseo Padre Parkway, would create 209 new homes just blocks away from the Fremont BART Station. Kimco Realty is the project sponsor.
The proposal was first reported on by George Avalos for the Bay Area News Group. Avalos reports that the development was revealed by a preliminary proposal on file with city officials. While YIMBY could confirm the preliminary project application, we could not independently verify the project’s planning documents and renderings.
The application states that the Gateway Plaza mixed-use project will redevelop the northeast portion of the center, specifically the 26,550 square feet of commercial space occupied by 24 Hour Fitness. The new development will rise five stories with 209 multi-family apartments to rent and parking for 265 cars.
TCA Architects is responsible for the design. An estimated timeline for construction and completion is not yet known. With just a preliminary application, the project will start the public review and approval process with the city. YIMBY has contacted Kimco Realty and has not received a reply as of the time of publication.
The duo has also worked on a similar redevelopment of the Fremont Hub Shopping Center. The team has proposed a 314-unit infill along Fremont Boulevard, ten minutes away from the Fremont BART Station by bus or bicycle.
