Real Deals: Fusion by O’Brien Homes
Hear from Dennis O’Brien, founder and president of Foster City based O’Brien Homes, who took over and re-branded a troubled town home project into a successful new, vibrant community. We will also be hearing from Beth Bartlett, a partner on this project.
During the height of the real estate correction in 2009, the City of Sunnyvale suffered a particularly severe blow when the builder of a new townhouse-condo project, John Laing Homes, fell casualty to the crisis and abandoned the project without notice. The high profile project originally consisted of 242-planned townhouse-style condos and single family homes right behind the AMD campus on Duane Road. At the time the project was suddenly abandoned, two buildings had been fully constructed with a total of 14 units completed.
O’Brien acquired and redesigned the project into 228-townhomes with common areas including a 12-seat private theater and putting green. Here is the chance to see the project as the entire project nears completion/sell-out and hear about the challenges and ultimate success of taking over a project and it’s re-birth. Fusion is located at East Duane and De Guigne Avenue in Sunnyvale.
Drinks and light food will be served after tour.
