Alameda Journal: Michaan's Auctions opens new Alameda annex, August 10, 2012


ALAMEDA -- Just a free shuttle stop away from the antiques fair he hosts once a month, Allen Michaan has opened a new annex for his auction house at the former Alameda Naval Air Station.

The cavernous Building 20 offers more natural light than a former site for Michaan's Auction's in Building 25. Not only does the former helicopter maintenance facility provide a larger showroom, but it allows for a receiving department and the potential for remodeling space for an office.

"It's a much better building for what we do," said Michaan, who founded the auction house 10 years ago.
