Point Developers Present New Plans

srmErnst Development Partners This drawing of plans for the “Taxiway” shows part of a timeline along the walkway intended to remind and educate the public about the history of the former Naval Air Station. This particular part of the timeline recalls Benton Field, an airstrip used by the United States Army Air Corps.

Alameda Point Partners (APP) has been working with design consultants, park planners, a Planning Board subcommittee and city staff to prepare detailed designs for the individual buildings and parks within Site A.  

APP has submitted an application for design review for a 2.63-acre Phase 1 of the waterfront park along the northern edge of the Seaplane Lagoon that is intended to be constructed concurrent with Block 11. 

APP has designed Phase 1 Waterfront Park to provide a variety of spaces for recreation. The design also focuses on ways for the public to appreciate the views of the San Francisco skyline and the historic row of seaplane hangars at the entrance to the Historic District, along the Seaplane Lagoon.

The plans went before the Planning Board on Monday. The Recreation and Park Commission is scheduled to review them this evening, Thursday, Jan. 14, at 7 p.m. at City Hall. The public is invited to offer comments.
