Contra Costa Times: Affordable housing part of Alameda Point development, October 7, 2015


The construction of affordable housing will be part of the first phase of the $500 million project to redevelop 68 acres of waterfront property at Alameda Point with a mix of homes and businesses, the Planning Board will hear Monday.

The 128 units of family and senior housing will be built along Ralph Appezzato Memorial Parkway between Main Street and Ferry Point Way at the former Alameda Naval Air Station.

The initial phase of the ambitious project, which the City Council unanimously approved in June, also calls for 182 multifamily units and 15,000 square feet of ground floor retail on a parcel adjacent to the affordable housing site.

An additional 200 multifamily units and 20,000 square feet of ground floor retail will be built at the foot of Ralph Appezzato Memorial Parkway closer to the waterfront.
