Looks like the entry signs for Alameda Point got a fresh new design but it’s not a whole lot better. It has a very Disneyland land feel with the super saturated colors and the mix of materials. But if it’s a question of selecting between this new sign and the old one, this one is a whole lot better
And the close up shot with shadow hipster for reference:
Also on the Planning Board’s agenda tonight is the review for the draft of the Waterfront Town Center plan which is weird that we are approving this AFTER the RFQs for developers have already gone out, but whatever.
Here’s a slide that folks might be interested in detailing the maximum and minimum heights for certain blocks in the Town Center plan.
And a look at the historic heights for the hangars, which top out at a little less than 60′ tall.
Oh, also apparently the seal colony at Alameda Point’s Seaplane Lagoon keeps disappearing. It’s unclear what is happening and according to the City they’re not doing anything at the Seaplane Lagoon to affect the seal colony. This week though, apparently WETA divers will be inspecting the sea wall for future reference (could be part of their maintenance facility plans or even plans to move the ferry terminal). If anyone knows what could be happening to the float where the seals typically hang out, you can post about it here. Perhaps the WETA divers would be willing to take a quick peek to see if there’s some trouble with the float or dock or whatever the seals generally hang out on.
