Contra Costa Times: First new building proposed for Alameda Point, December 9, 2015


The building on Pan Am Way will have 220 residential units all accessible by elevator, part of the 800 units that have been approved for what city officials call Site "A," the 68 acres at the former base proposed for an overall mixed-use, transit-oriented development. The residential units will range from one-bedroom to three-bedroom.

Designed by BAR Architects of San Francisco, the building will have about 25,000 square feet of ground-floor retail, 224 on-site parking spots and 4,500 square feet of interior community and recreational space, including a lap pool.

The 78-foot-high building also will feature green materials and technology, such as solar panels, energy efficient windows and water conserving plumbing fixtures, according to the plans that will be presented at Monday's workshop.
