Palmia Senior Housing
In November, the Fremont City Council approved the Palmia project in the Warm Springs district. The project includes a four-story building comprised of 171 market-rate apartments for seniors aged 55 or older. It is part of the Mission Court senior affordable housing community (formerly known as Parc 55) that was approved back in March 2016 and is already under construction. Palmia will offer residents a clubhouse, theater, computer room, gym, and swimming pool. Construction is expected to begin in early spring 2018.

New Housing Legislation
Due to the significant challenges California is facing in both housing supply and housing affordability, the state legislature introduced over 130 new bills in 2017. Of these, 15 new laws were ultimately enacted and took effect on January 1, 2018. Broadly, these laws will change the way housing projects are reviewed by cities, require cities to keep an inventory of sites suitable to meet the assigned regional housing needs at all income levels, allow inclusionary zoning for rental housing projects, and establish some additional funding for affordable housing.
