Alameda Point Info - Exploring the Future of Alameda Point

Located in the heart of the Bay Area on the island city of Alameda, Alameda Point (a former naval air station) is a neighborhood in transition. Creative reuse of military buildings and plans for new construction are in progress. Offering panoramic views of the San Francisco skyline, Alameda Point is home to historic buildings, important wildlife habitat, and a unique shoreline and open space landscape on the Bay.

Scheduled Development - The California Water Emergency Transportation Authority (WETA) will begin construction on its 12-berth ferry maintenance facility in 2016. Developer Alameda Point Partners will begin construction on its 68-acre mixed-use project next to the Seaplane Lagoon in 2017. The U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs (VA) will begin construction work on its columbarium cemetery in 2017, followed by construction of its medical facility.
