The Alamedan: Alameda Point Explained: The developers debut, October 10, 2013


On Tuesday, the City Council will hold a closed-door discussion to consider proposals to purchase chunks of Alameda Point from Charles Company, a West Hollywood-based developer, and DeBartolo Development, the family-run conglomerate whose founder is known as the father of the shopping mall and whose current leadership includes the longtime owner and manager of the San Francisco 49ers.

The discussion is the first of what City Manager John Russo said will be several about how much of Alameda Point to sell, and to whom.

“We’ve made it clear that we were going to start bringing deals in November. And some of them are pretty cool,” Russo said.
