East Bay Express: The General Storehouse to Bring 80,000 Square Feet of Commercial Kitchen Space to Alameda, May 28, 2018
Hangar One, St. George Spirits, Faction Brewing, Rockwall Wine — these are just some of the companies turning Alameda Point into a food manufacturing center in the Bay Area. As the Point continues to develop, one upcoming project will contribute to the growth by providing live/work spaces and up to 40 units of commercial kitchen space.
The General Storehouse is a new project coming from one of the
developers behind the Berkeley Kitchens, Jonah Hendrickson, who took a historic and unused site in West Berkeley and turned it into a food incubation space.
After the Berkeley Kitchens was completed in 2013, Hendrickson started looking for a new project. He knew there was a demand for this type of space. “I wanted to produce more of it,” said Hendrickson, who grew up in Berkeley. About three years ago, he started working with the City of Alameda to turn a former Navy warehouse called the General Storehouse into usable space.
