Review Point Plans Jan. 23

 

There are three public hearing agenda items regarding new development at Alameda Point at the upcoming Planning Board meeting Monday, Jan. 23 at City Hall.

The Planning Board will consider recommending to the City Council approval of the Main Street Neighborhood (MSN) Specific Plan.

The MSN Plan fulfills the City’s objectives for a transit-oriented, mixed-use, mixed-income neighborhood with diverse housing options, parks and open spaces, neighborhood serving businesses and transitional commercial uses, according to a memorandum from the redevelopment project manager. 

The board will also consider a proposed parcel map for creation of a single 6.76-acre parcel consistent with the Town Center plan, Alameda Point Master Infrastructure Plan and Alameda Point Zoning Ordinance. Once the plan is authorized, the city will sell the parcel to Bladium, a commercial sports facility on West Tower Avenue.

Lastly, the Planning Board will consider approval of final design details for the Site A Waterfront Park and neighborhood parks and provide comments on design concepts for the Waterfront Park Pavilion. The board approved the design review application for the Site A Neighborhood Park. However, the board still had questions about the landscaping, lighting and bicycle facilities. As a result, Alameda Point Partners added new details to the design.

The meeting will be held in the Council Chambers at 7 p.m.
