Contra Costa Times: New strategy proposed for Alameda Point redevelopment district, September 30, 2015


City officials are hoping to jump-start interest in transforming 82 acres at Alameda Point into a place for commercial uses, a move that follows a team of developers winning approval to build a mix of homes and retail on a neighboring site.

Once known as Site "B" and now called the Enterprise District, the area where city officials hope to attract commercial developers is between Main Street and Central Avenue and borders what is known as the Seaplane Lagoon. Pacific Avenue cuts through its center.

The goal is to attract developers who create large commercial projects considered major sales tax generators.
