Last week, the City of Alameda announced it is approaching completion of plans for Alameda Point’s Waterfront Town Center area. Officials expect this area to become the heart of Alameda Point featuring retail establishments, attractions for visitors, waterfront promenades and transit-oriented multi-family housing.
