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.

The City of Alameda took title to about 1,400 acres of land and water from the Navy on June 4, 2013. It is the first, and largest, phase of land transfer to the city since the Naval Air Station closed in 1997. The base was listed for closure in 1993.
