The Island: City selects Alameda Point planning team, January 25, 2011


A team of city staffers and others have selected a team of consulting firms to help develop a fresh plan to develop Alameda Point.

Perkins+Will, a land use planning firm with offices in several major cities including San Francisco that helped out on the Alameda Landing project, has been selected to help the city with land use planning duties at the Point, Planning Services Manager Andrew Thomas told the Planning Board on Monday night. The team also selected Arup, an international planning and design firm, to help plan a sustainable development and to help the city deal with environmental issues that will affect the Point like sea level rise and energy generation.

Thomas said the city’s Point consulting team will also include Nelson\Nygaard, a firm with transportation demand management expertise. Final interviews have been conducted for a team of economists, but a candidate has not yet been selected, he said.
