San Francisco Chronicle: Alameda may sever ties with developer SunCal


Alameda was embroiled in a heated showdown Tuesday night over the fate of the long-dormant Navy base, where a developer wants to build thousands of homes and offices.

The City Council was slated to sever its four-year relationship with SunCal, an Irvine developer that planned to build 4,800 homes, a 60-acre sports complex, offices, parks, schools, a ferry terminal and other amenities at the former Naval Air Station, which comprises one-third of the island city.
