Alameda Sun:City Mulls Point Enterprise District, September 29, 2016


At its Tuesday, Oct. 4, meeting the City Council will discuss the development of Alameda Point’s Enterprise District, also noted as Area B on some maps. The district lies south of Area A, which is centered on West Atlantic Avenue and primed for residential development.

City staff has divided the district into four zones.

Zone 1 occupies most of the district. The city hopes to use this land for employment and business uses. This includes offices, research and development companies and bio-technology companies. The city would also welcome businesses that deal in high-tech manufacturing and sales, light and heavy industrial manufacturing and maritime interests.
Zone 2 abuts Site A and would focus on office uses compatible with the Waterfront Town Center, which is part of Site A.
Zone 3 would serve as a buffer along Main Street and the residential neighborhoods to the east. The city plans lower intensity here to create a more seamless integration between the Enterprise District and the existing neighborhood and allows the possibility for some residential uses.
Zone 4 abuts the piers and Seaplane Lagoon. The city would permit only working waterfront businesses in this zone.
