Council Considers Site A Amendment
On Wednesday, July 5, Alameda City Council considered an amendment to the Alameda Point Site A Plan, for the portion of Alameda Point currently under development. Alameda Point Partners and the City have created a solution that would maintain the integrity of the original development while delivering the need for housing.
The amendment’s passage means that the 800 units of housing should be delivered sooner and a new ferry terminal at Seaplane Lagoon will be fully funded by 2020. The amendment also provides $93 million in funding for infrastructure improvements so that construction of Site A can finally break ground. The project is expected to bring thousands of union jobs to the Island and begin the redevelopment of Alameda Point.
