You ask, we answer: Are new businesses opening on Fremont?

QUESTION: "There has been demolition of about five old businesses on Fremont in Alhambra.  What new customers/developers are there for that area?" – G. Valladolid, Aug. 30 via email

ANSWER: Real estate developers Charles Company and R.H. Properties presented during an adjourned March 19 City Council meeting a plan for a proposed retail center and 313 condominiums on the west side of Fremont Avenue between Mission Road and Orange Street. The proposed project would be a combination of large retailers, a grocery store, and smaller shops, according to the meeting minutes. 

While the group of developers has received letters of intent from T.J. Maxx, Sports Authority, and Bed Bath & Beyond, they are still in the process of acquiring property in the area, according to Assistant Alhambra City Manager Tara Schultz.

  1. So essentially they haven’t acquired all the property nor nailed down agreements with retailers, but they started demolition so we have to live with this complete eye sore until they sort things out?

  2. How many condos does this City Council want to build in our city. Already since the Los Angele Housing Authority moved in the demographics of our city has changed. When does it become toooooo many condos.
