San Francisco Chronicle: Alameda severs ties with developer SunCal


Alameda scrapped its contract with a developer early today to bring thousands of homes and offices to the former Navy base, sending the sprawling, contentious project back to the drawing board 14 years after the Navy left.

The City Council voted 4-0, with one abstention, 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.
