Tomorrow the City Council will vote to authorize the City Manage to accept conveyance of Phase 1 of Alameda Point from the Navy to the City of Alameda.
If you scroll to the second to the last agenda item there is a huge list (which I have not opened all of them, I’ll be completely honest) of all the documents that come as part and parcel of conveyance including detailed information about each parcel.
But for those that are more visual, here is a map. the light blue are the parts that would be conveyed.
You may be wondering why the land is divided up into so many small parcels, that is addressed in the staff report:
The detailed parcelization will allow the City to assemble and sell parcels for private development with clear information about the specific conditions relevant to each parcel. If fewer, larger parcels had been created instead, environmental restrictions and notifications would appear on deeds for many areas that do not need them potentially creating a challenge in understanding which restrictions and notifications would apply to which portions of each parcel. Uncertainty regarding the condition of the property, especially pertaining to environmental conditions, would have damaged the marketability of the land.
It looks like that after years and years of delay, there is finally some real progress on Alameda Point with actual parcels being turned over to the City. What comes next is the completion of the EIR and after that, selling off parcels I suppose.
