Alameda Point SITE A

Alameda Point Site A Moving Through Planning Board Design Review

Since project approval by City Council last July, Alameda Point Partners has been working in earnest with the City to present designs for each parcel for Planning Board review.

This process, conducted as a series of workshops at Planning Board (and with other boards and commissions) since last December, will continue through Spring. Review past and upcoming staff reports and presentations here.

On Monday, March 14th, the City of Alameda’s Planning Board unanimously approved the final design review for Block 11, Block 8 and for phase one of a waterfront park along the Seaplane Lagoon as part of the Site A development at Alameda Point.  Block 8 includes a 130-unit affordable housing project for families and seniors, which will have approximately 3,500 square feet of community and amenity uses and an estimated 15,000 square feet of courtyard and roof deck space.  Block 11 consists of 221 multi-family residential units with 22,157 square feet of ground floor retail uses looking out over a “shared plaza.” The waterfront park along the northern edge of Seaplane Lagoon adjacent to the shared plaza will consist of 2.7 acres.

Among the elements for discussion are the initial architectural and parking designs for the proposed townhomes on Block 6 and Block 7. Additionally, the Planning Board will review and comment on the design for the West Atlantic Street configuration, the gateway design, and proposed street names for the side streets at Site A.

The proposed townhomes represent a diversity in both housing type and architecture style for Site A, and help support the critical infrastructure repairs necessary to create the backbone of this new community.

Please join us for the discussion and share your voice with the Planning Board:

WHEN: Monday, May 23rd at 7 p.m.

WHERE: Alameda City Hall: 2263 Santa Clara Ave, Council Chambers, 3rd Floor.
