Fremont: Developer reviving $200 million Asian- and European-themed mall that stalled in ’07

Anybody remember when this very same mall idea on Stevenson Boulevard, next to Newark, was on the verge of being built back in 2007? It’s back. Story by colleague George Avalos.

FREMONT — A stalled $200 million retail mall here is being revived by a development group that wants to turn the retail, restaurant and high-rise hotel complex into a shopping and dining magnet for the Bay Area, the realty firm handling the Asian- and European-themed project said Thursday.

The Globe mall in Fremont will eventually total 450,000 square feet of shops, restaurants and cultural spaces, plus a 12-story, 248-room hotel that will have views of San Francisco Bay and be visible from Interstate 880. The mall will consist of a series of “villages,” each a building incorporating themes associated with a certain part of Asia or Europe.
