Alameda Magazine: Goodbye Ghost Town, March 2014 [Story begins on page 30]


Ask Russo what Alameda Point will look
like in a decade and he shrugs. “To be honest
I don’t know what it will look like, and this
makes people uncomfortable when I say this
because you are supposed to have a plan that
solves it all, but no one’s plans ever work that
way,” Russo says.

He hopes that in a decade, Alameda Point
will be a growing residential and business
village with good water transit and bus
connections. The plan includes a section of
dense residential development as well as a
separate residential neighborhood of family
homes and duplexes. The historical area will
be reused. It will be 30 years, Russo guesses,
before the future of the point is fully realized.
