After a five year partnership with the Sisters of the Holy Family in Fremont, CA, DCG is proud to announce the 15-acre Master Plan for their property was approved by the Fremont City Council in November.
The Sisters have been a part of the Fremont community since 1948, when they purchased the beautiful property they call “Palmdale”. As the Sisters have aged, the property no longer fits their needs and the costs to maintain the extensively landscaped 14.8 acres and the two historic homes on their property has become increasingly cost prohibitive. Wanting to strategically leverage the property and fulfill their current needs while keeping their mission and Earth Carter a priority, the Sisters reached out to DCG to help determine the best course of action. The Sisters and DCG investigated appropriate housing designs, worked to find a way to preserve, as much as possible, the environmental and historic treasure of Palmdale.
The 15-acre Master Plan approved by the Fremont City Council will include;
- A multi-million dollar endowment to preserve an approximate 5+ acre “Core Area”
- The preservation of two historic homes
- The investment of approximately $3.8 million dollars in affordable housing
- The construction of 45-units of innovative senior housing for the Sisters.
