Last week, we boarded buses and took a commercial real estate audience of nearly 200 people on Tour Fremont, where we shared Fremont’s compelling story and showcased the tremendous amount of investment being deployed across the city and across real estate asset classes. We were very fortunate to have renowned real estate publication, The Registry, as our event partner, and they certainly know how to sniff out a good story! Well, together we did not disappoint and poured out the full Fremont history to attendees.

After all, Fremont’s story is one of resilience and reinvention — and most importantly, partnership. From the NUMMI plant closure followed by Tesla’s arrival to having the political courage to create a downtown from scratch in a post-redevelopment era, our City has in some ways been reinvented. This stunning series of events necessitated our City to harness its own entrepreneurial spirit and rethink the role a City plays and what it should be — sustainable, diverse, strategic, and even eclectic! All this led to the creation of strategic land use plans and the establishment of meaningful partnerships that are growing our community’s economy through capital investment and balanced growth in jobs, housing, and amenities.

We are thankful to all the partners and speakers who participated in telling our story. There is no doubt that participants left the event feeling inspired and excited about the possibilities in Fremont.
