Center Theater for Sale

10 Aug

After much battle with the City of Fremont, the owner of the Center Theater, David Siddiq, is selling the Center Theater and neighboring apartments for the asking price of approximately $2.5 million.

Recall that Siddiq was denied expanding the uses of the theater by the planning commission and city council. Then Siddiq threw a temper tantrum and demolished the inside of the theater. Now Siddiq is back to the drawing board, and selling the theater.

Siddiq and the City could not reach compromise in previous years over the price of the property. Unfortunately for Siddiq, the city doesn’t have all of the dough that it once did with redevelopment money forever gone.

What do you think should happen with the theater?

    Siddiq should’ve sold while he had the chance.

    It would make a good “Performing Arts Center”. Remember How the local politicians voted on this politicians disaster, some are up for re-election. They screwed the people of Fremont trying to low ball the owner, then denying him permit to run a Performing Arts Center as a negotiating tool, it back fired in there faces, what politicians seeking office were part of this?????
