The city of Fremont is actually composed of five towns that incorporated in 1956: Irvington, Niles, Centerville, Mission San Jose and Warm Springs. Now these towns are districts, as well as three others: Ardenwood, Baylands and Downtown. With eight distinct districts to choose from, there is a wealth of apartments for rent in Fremont near where you need to be.
On the far west side of Fremont, Ardenwood is the home of Ardenwood Technology Park, a prominent biotechnology and high-tech business center. If you're in the life science profession, look for apartments in this Fremont district; nearly a quarter of the city's 40 biotech firms are in Ardenwood. On the other side of town, Warm Springs is another center for technology businesses.
East of Ardenwood lies Centerville, which, like its name suggests, is located in the center of Fremont. Centerville is stationed around the Centerville Depot, the location of the annual Fremont Depot Day Celebration. Each Saturday morning, Fremont apartment residents fill a full block at the Centerville Farmers Market to hear local musicians and shop for fresh produce and flowers.
Downtown Fremont, which is already a hub for retail stores, restaurants, trendy apartments and services, is in the midst of an expansive revitalization effort. Here, shop at the Hub, where anchor stores include Bed, Bath and Beyond and Borders; and The Shops at Washington West, a collection of smaller, more intimate shops. More shopping is in the Baylands District at Pacific Commons, home of department stores, home improvement stores and other major chain retailers.
For antique shopping and charming cafes within walking distance, consider searching for apartments in Fremont's Niles or Irvington districts. The Broadway West Theatre Company, an intimate theater that allows its patrons to choose the next year's line-up, is in Irvington's Five Corners neighborhood, as is the Irvington Farmer's Market.
Apartments in Mission San Jose are popular with students at Fremont's Ohlone Community College, which serves more than 12,000 students. Even if you're not a college student, discover the harmonious sounds of the Fremont Symphony Orchestra, which performs throughout the year at the college's Gary Soren Smith Center for the Fine and Performing Arts. One block away stands the actual Mission San Jose, and across the street is the Olive Hyde Art Gallery, a traditional and contemporary art museum.
