Contra Costa Times: Berkeley lab selects six Bay Area sites [including Alameda] as finalists for second campus, May 9, 2011

[Alameda Point is one of the finalists]


In narrowing down the list, the lab said it looked for a location less than 25 minutes from the original campus, room to accommodate growth, easy access to public transportation and other amenities. It expects to select the new campus site in November.

The six sites chosen for final consideration all are west of the Berkeley hills. Among the applications left off the short list was one from SunCal, which proposed a site in Dublin.

"Obviously we are disappointed," said Joe Guerra, land acquisition and entitlements manager for SunCal. "We thought we and the city of Dublin had a strong proposal, and I am guessing that it had to do with the location."
