Libre Commons is a mixed-use in-fill development with 86 units of affordable multi-family rental housing, including five live-work units at the ground floor level and approximately 7,525 square feet of resident amenity and supportive services space. The building is located on a 2.26-acre parcel located at the southeast corner of North Glenn Avenue and West Shaw Avenue in Fresno, which has been vacant for decades and is adjacent to single-family housing to the southwest, low-rise multifamily housing to the south and commercial development to the west, east, and north (across Shaw Ave). The project is located less than 300 feet from a station stop on Fresno’s new Bus Rapid Transit line and will have easy access to Fresno’s most robust transit routes. A new bus transit shelter is proposed along the south side of W Shaw Ave as part of the public improvements associated with the development.


  • The units are a mix of 50 one-bedrooms, 42 two-bedrooms, 31 three-bedrooms, and 1 two-bedroom manager’s unit. 42 of the units will be reserved as supportive housing in partnership with the Fresno County Department of Behavioral Health with project-based rental assistance from Fresno Housing. The balance of the units will be available for tenants at 50 % AMI.


  • The development includes approximately 6,800 square feet of community-accessible space, which in part will serve for the provision of onsite wrap-around supports and includes retail space, a fitness room, a computer lab, offices, and community spaces throughout the building.


  • There are 12,525 square feet of outdoor amenity space comprising covered porticos/seating areas, a rooftop amenity deck, and green space, along with a ground floor children’s play area adjacent to a large general-purpose green space.
