Alameda Point
Potential Commercial Mixed-Use Development

Alameda Point is the site of a potential major mixed-use project based on redevelopment of the Alameda Naval Air Station. A Bay Trail extension is planned around shoreline, connecting new parks.

SunCal Companies was selected as master developer for the project in 2007. SunCal proposed a plan that depended on voters approving Measure B, which would have exempted the Point from Alameda restrictions on high-density housing. In the wake of Alameda voters' rejection of Measure B on February 4, 2010, the SunCal project's future was ended, and relations between the developer and City broke down.  See press coverage

In 2011, the City of Alameda began reviewing options for the future of the former Naval Air Station property.  The City engaged the firm of Perkins + Will to work with the community in a visioning and land-use planning process for the Point. View the scope of work and contract for this planning effort.

Following its adoption of the Waterfront Town Center Plan for Alameda Point in July of 2014, the City began leading the development process on a site-by-site incrmental basis.  On November 18, 2014, the City entered into an exclusive negotiating agreement for development of Site A, the first 68-acre parcel at the Point.
