Old House May Get New Neighbors
An historic house at 34653 Fremont Boulevard in the North Fremont area may become part of a new residential development. A developer is proposing to keep the house on the property and surround it with eighteen three-story townhomes.
According to the booklet ÒOur City Fremont: A Photo TourÓ published by the Celebrate Fremont Heritage Team in 2006, the house was probably built by Frank and Julia Motha in the early 1900s after they acquired the property. The developer plans to renovate the old house, add a new garage, and fence off a portion of the property to form a separate lot with its own driveway.
Initial plans for the rest of the property include the eighteen townhomes in six buildings with garages facing a T-shaped interior street. Vehicles will enter and exit from a single driveway off Fremont Boulevard, and visitor parking is provided within the site. Access to the front doors is via landscaped walkways between the buildings and along the walls.
The development, which is to be named Beachwood, is currently under formal review by the City of Fremont Planning Department. The review will cover all aspects of the project including environmental impacts, architecture, landscaping, and compliance with city ordinances.
Fremont residents are encouraged to send questions and comments about this project early in the review process. Emails regarding the Beachwood Development may be sent directly to the City Staff Project Planner Terry Wong at email@example.com
