Alameda Journal: Ferry maintainence facility proposed for Alameda Point, December 31, 2013


A proposal to build a ferry maintenance facility near the USS Hornet Museum at Alameda Point that could accommodate up to 12 vessels at a time will go before the San Francisco Bay Conservation and Development Commission on Monday.

Along with floating berths for ferries, the project proposed by the Water Emergency Transit Authority calls for a four-story building and a 13,500-square-foot yard, as well as an extension of the Bay Trail.

The project is going before the commission because part of the four-acre site at Ferry Point and West Hornet Avenue falls within its 100-foot jurisdiction of the bay shoreline.
