Alameda Point Environmental Report: Alameda Point gateway plan begins taking shape, January 15, 2015
At its January 20, 2015 meeting, the city council will weigh-in on the preliminary layout proposed by developer Alameda Point Partners (APP) for a 68-acre residential and commercial parcel between Main Street and the Seaplane Lagoon.
APP was selected by the former city council on November 18, 2014, to work up a plan for 800 condos and apartments and 200,000 square feet of retail and commercial space. The developer will also be responsible for changing the gateway street alignment from an oval to a straight line leading to a new public plaza at the Seaplane Lagoon.
Normally, development projects are first presented to the planning board. At the November city council meeting, however, staff was directed to check in with the city council regularly to receive guidance on the development plan. “As a result, staff is bringing the preliminary concept plan to the city council first before presenting it to the Planning Board,” said Jennifer Ott, Chief Operating Officer for Alameda Point.
