The Island: Public consensus on Alameda Point? Sort of, April 6, 2011


Participants in a host of meetings and workshops on the fate of Alameda Point agree on many of the basic principles for developing the Point. But the devil, as they say, is in the details.

Residents, Point tenants and members of several boards and commissions have said they’d like to see a mixed use development; what they don’t agree on is how much housing it should contain, or how tall the buildings can be. They want adaptive reuse of buildings, parks and open space; but it’s not clear how much of each anyone’s preferred plan can ultimately pay for.
