East Bay Times: Alameda Point key building’s design going before planners, April 5, 2018


The design of a building proposed for Alameda Point that will feature 200 apartments and 10,000 square feet of commercial space will be back before the Planning Board on Monday.

Known as “Block 9,” the building will be bordered by West Atlantic Avenue and Orion Street — plus two streets that still must be built — and will be within walking distance of where a new ferry terminal is planned.

The project also would feature a 1,400-square-foot rooftop deck and lounge where up to 95 people at a time could gather and look at sweeping views of the San Francisco skyline.

The location at the former Alameda Naval Air Station is part of what city officials call “Site A,” an area totaling about 68 acres where the overall $500 million project calls for 800 apartments, townhomes and condominiums and up 600,000 square feet of commercial space.
