On May 23, the City of Alameda and its private partner, Alameda Point Partners, LLC, (APP) celebrated the first phase of a $1 billion mixed-use, transit-oriented waterfront development at the gateway to Alameda Point. The 68-acre development is located on the former Naval Air Station Alameda, which closed more than 20 years ago.
In June 2015, Alameda Point Partners (APP) got the green light from the City Council to proceed with the development of a 68-acre site at Alameda Point. The property, known as Site A, extends from the old East Gate of the Naval Air Station at Main Street and today’s Ralph Appezzato Memorial Parkway to Seaplane Lagoon.
At its Tuesday, Jan. 17 meeting the City Council will likely take the first step in passing an ordinance that would allow Alameda Point Partners, LLC, (APP) additional time to complete itsdue diligence and line up some supplementary funding. The move would require a change in the Disposition and Development Agreement (DDA) with APP.
Since 1983, Martin Luther King Jr. Day (Jan. 16 this year) has been designated a day of service. Residents can get started early on Saturday, Jan. 14, from 9 a.m. to noon, when Alameda Point Partners and the city of Alameda Public Works Department host a shoreline cleanup event.
Volunteers are asked to wear sturdy, closed-toe shoes, and bring their own reusable buckets or bags and work gloves. Large groups are encouraged. Participants under the age of 18 are welcome, but must be accompanied by an adult.
Two crucial meetings are scheduled to take place this week regarding the future of the proposed ferry terminal at the Seaplane Lagoon at Alameda Point. The ferry will provide commuters an additional option for public transit service from Alameda Point to San Francisco.
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.
