San Francisco Chronicle: Alameda set to end ties with SunCal developer


Alameda is set for a bitter breakup today with the Orange County developer that hoped to build a 12,000-resident community at the former Naval Air Station.

The city manager has recommended that the City Council end its ties with SunCal, the company that has been working on the project for four years. If the council agrees, SunCal will be the second master developer to have failed to build at the 1,500-acre former base, which has largely languished since the Navy left in 1996.
