In the past few weeks or so a bunch of commercial lots around the Webster Street area have popped up for sale. I’m not sure if this is due to the Target going in or possible development around the Beltline but nonetheless the timing is pretty odd.
The first is the old parking lot nearish to the post office on Webster. I thought this was listed in the millions previously, but now the asking price is $900,000.
The next one is the piece of land next to the motel near the College of Alameda, most recently it was used for a car rental operation and before that someone was selling used cars on that lot. The asking price is $325,000 but the access is pretty miserable and the shape is also not ideal for anything. This one won’t be easy to move.
Then the last one is on Lincoln off of Webster which is sort of this weird collection of houses and a great big parking lot. I think the most recent operation is (was?) an independent rental car agency as well. For this one, the asking price is $1,099,000.
Oh and in other Webster Street news, the West Alameda Business Association has sent a letter to the Planning Board in support of something other than the East Bay Regional Park District plan at Neptune Pointe. Worth a read, it’s pretty short.
