Warm Springs/So.Fremont Station West Access Bridge & Plaza Project | bart.gov
BART and the City of Fremont are working together on a project to build a pedestrian and bicycle bridge over the Union Pacific tracks connecting the new plaza west of the station to the Warm Springs/South Fremont BART Station. Work at the station will begin in January, 2019 and is scheduled for completion in 2020.

There's a planned brownfield infill development that it will serve. There is another brownfield development to the east of the station. I checked on some mapping sites:
  • Terraserver -- now payware
  • Bing -- BART station under construction. Parking lots unpaved.
  • Google -- BART station almost open. No construction on either side.
  • MapQuest -- BART station almost open. Ground clearing on east side.
  • Yahoo -- BART station open. Ground clearing and some construction on both sides.
Warm Springs Transit Village - Van Meter Williams Pollack LLP is about the east side -- mostly multistory apartment blocks. I couldn't find anything recent on the west side, but I'm guessing that it's likely similar.

if you have an apple device, Apple Maps actually has more up-to-date satellite imagery.

I have an iMac, and I checked on Apple Maps. That is indeed the case. There are several buildings in various stages of construction on both sides, though on the west side, it is still mostly ground clearing.

BART has a page on such property development: Transit-Oriented Development (TOD) | bart.gov I checked on which stations list property developments:
  • Core: MacArthur XC
  • Richmond: Ashby X, El Cerrito P, Richmond XP
  • Pittsburg/Antioch: Walnut Creek C, Pleasant Hill XCP, North Concord / Martinez P
  • Fremont: Lake Merritt P, Fruitvale XP, Coliseum C, San Leandro XC, Hayward X, South Hayward X
  • Dublin-Pleasanton: Castro Valley X, West D-P XCP, East D-P X
  • SF/Millbrae: West Oakland P, Balboa Park P, Millbrae P
X = at least partially completed
C = under construction
P = planned / proposed

No mention of Warm Springs.

Here's my aerial photo of the station on December 30. The red fences near the split in the darker (UP) track may be footing construction.

Thanx. It's impressive how far that construction has gone. Does this construction extend further east or west?

BART testing to San Jose picks up; Nov. 1 opening tentatively set – East Bay Times
A second phase will extend BART six miles from Berryessa into downtown San Jose and Santa Clara and is projected to be completed in 2026.

Crews are now boring into the ground in parking spaces and sidewalks on Santa Clara Street. ...

Major construction isn’t expected downtown until next year.


Construction of long-delayed Warm Springs BART West Access Bridge moving along – East Bay Times "Bridge and plaza project expected to be complete by 2020"
One set of major support columns have been completed, and another set is on the way as work on the foundation continues, according to Hans Larsen, Fremont’s public works director.

Later this year, Larsen said major portions of the bridge structure — which are being built off-site — will be incorporated.

...
“The plaza will provide a community gathering space with seating, bicycle lockers, solar charging stations, an information kiosk, and public art,” the city statement said.

They are expecting construction to start in 2022 and the station to open in 2026.

"The work we begin this week for the next seven weeks is preliminary work that will allow us to better understand the soil conditions and where the utilities are placed so that we can advance the design of the tunnel and underground stations," VTA spokesperson Brandi Childress said in a statement.

So it's essentially preconstruction work, probing the ground.
