The City of Fremont, California is in the midst of an ambitious midtown revitalization plan aimed at creating a new sense of place and identity for the center of the East Bay city. The plan, which focuses on mixed-use residential and commercial development, was initiated by a new 302-unit apartment building with a public park designed by landscape architect Guzzardo Partnership, Inc. The city sought a comprehensive approach to furnishings and lighting for the district that would provide high quality amenity and a distinctive aesthetic. It chose Landscape Forms Metro40 site furniture and complimentary Hi-Glo LED lighting, which meets stringent California Title 24 requirements for energy efficiency and “Dark Skies” compliance. More than seventy-five Hi-Glo lights have been installed to date on the ongoing project and Fremont has made Hi-Glo the new standard for pedestrian streetscape lighting.
