The Alamedan: Gilmore reflects on her mayoral term in State of the City speech, February 19, 2014


The mayor had good news on the development of Alameda Point and Alameda Landing. Opening day sales at the new Target store exceeded the amount taken in that day at new stores in San Francisco and Marin County combined.

Development will soon begin at Alameda Point, Gilmore said, now that the city has approved a host of planning documents that will clear the way for conversion of the former Alameda Naval Air Station for residential and commercial use. She didn't offer any specific development proposals.

Gilmore said the planning approvals will come as good news to those who want to see the property redeveloped.

“For those of you who have been dreaming about this for decades, we are just about there,” she said.
