New Townhomes Proposed for Alameda Point

May 24, 2016

052316_1The Alameda Planning Board is ready to start the final process towards approving a new development of town homes in Alameda Point. The public is being invited to submit comments on the designs and proposed plans for what is currently known as site A for the new development. There will also be comments sought about the “gateway” of the area. Proposed plans include not only town homes, but also a mixed use community with residential and commercial areas. 124 new town homes are expected to be built should the proposal be approved.

The new homes will cover a two-block area of 68 acres which used to house the Alameda Naval Air Station. The proposed development of town homes will be, in part, bordered by “A”, “G” and Main Streets, as well as the Ralph Appazzeto Memorial Parkway. This is within walking distance to the Seaplane Lagoon along San Francisco Bay. Seaplane Lagoon is where a new ferry terminal has also been proposed. Should that be built as well, Alameda Point will be poised for excellent growth.

052316_2There are two firms set to design the proposed town homes, with each of the two blocks having its own distinct character. The first block of homes will be designed by KTGY Group, and will include 64 town homes in 11 different buildings. Each building will have three stories, and each unit will have a two car garage. The floor plans of the town homes will include 2-3 floors of living space, and range in size between 1,444 and 2,184 square feet.  The second block will be designed by Kwan Henmi Architecture, and will include 60 town homes. These buildings will also be three stories high. 16 of these units will have a one car garage, while the remaining 44 will have two car garages.  These properties will range in size from 1,521 to 2,357 square feet.

During the comment time, Board Members are seeking input toward design ideas for the “gateway” to Alameda Point which will be nearby the new town homes. Public features and street names are among the items the public can give suggestions. Some ideas being reviewed include historical markers highlighting the naval history of Alameda Point and open plaza areas. Some of the proposed street names include Ardent, Buckthorn, Coronado, Corsair, and Skylark.

We will continue to watch for updates in this new Alameda Point development. It is exciting to watch this area become revitalized after its long history as a naval base. For those looking to move to the area, this could be just the place to find your new home. When you are ready to buy or sell a home, my team and I are ready to help you through the entire process.
