Ain’t nobody’s business

Filed under: Alameda, Alameda Landing, Development — Lauren Do @ 6:07 am

Last week I had a post on the residential developments at Alameda Landing, today will focus on the retail and commercial developments.  If you have swung by, as John P. noted in the other post, the commercial side is going up pretty fast.   Safeway’s shell is nearly complete and it appears that they are really pushing for that October opening date.  Anything before the holidays would probably be a huge boon to Safeway.  Although we had been told that shops such as Corner Bakery and Which Wich were supposedly contenders for space, they are not currently on the list of signed tenants.   According to the most recent iteration of the leasing document here are the retailers:

  • Safeway
  • Michaels
  • Habit Burger
  • Unleashed by Petco
  • Sleep Train
  • Sprint
  • Famous Dave’s BBQ

A tenant “in negotiation” is an unnamed credit union and a bunch of other corner spaces are currently in negotiation as well.

Map here:

I crossed out one of the “In Negotiation” slots because that one has already been moved to “Signed Leases” and reflects the Unleased by Petco space which is going in right next door to Michaels.

Here are the facades for the storefronts that have signed leases:




landingbiz1 landingbiz2 landingbiz3 landingbiz4I really like the facade for the H1 space and with the patio seating it really can’t be anything but a restaurant of some type.   Either Which Wich has dropped out of the running because initially they were looking at the space next to Habit Burgers and now that particular store front is not even “In Negotiation” or they have opted to not be located next to Habit Burgers.   What’s also unclear is if Corner Bakery is still a contender to open at Alameda Landing.  Last year when folks were talking about the addition of Corner Bakery they were slated for the C building.  Now none of the C store fronts are even in negotiation, which means they are negotiating for a smaller space or decided that Alameda was not the right market for them.   The location that Panda Express had been reserved for in that 2013 update in still “in negotiation.”

Also, what’s neat about the Pacific Dental Services being located at Alameda Landing is that the College of Alameda has a Dental Assisting program where, hopefully, some of the students can get practical experience locally.



  1. Anyway to find out if the Safeway will have a Wells Fargo ATM inside.

  2. If I were inclined to become a franchisee, I would shoot for a Wahoo’s fish taco.

  3. I would be interested if there is enough business to keep Sleep Train going. We have 4 queen or king size beds and most likely won’t buy any more for years to come. We bought our mattress’s and our rugs at Macy’s outlet and saved thousands. We either had or bought the rest of our furniture at Macy’s, Harvest Home, The Furniture Mart (now the Twitter offices) sample sale and Ikea for some book selves. We didn’t know about Pillow Park Plaza after we bought everything.

    A lamp or lighting store next to sleep train would be interesting.

    We really don’t need anything else. As a matter of fact I have a corner of my garage which I have been piling us some stuff for goodwill or if anyone knows for a fund raiser garage sale we could donate it to that.

  8. post #6 Dave Sr. you need to find another site to post on, we don’t do racist here.

    Comment by John P. — August 27, 2014 @ 6:26 pm

  9. 6. what’s the plus size comment? Alameda doesn’t have it’s share of home grown plus size people? lame.

    also: because of hysterical reaction by paranoid white people to “black while shopping” combined with police over reaction, ANOTHER UNARMED BLACK MAN DEAD.

  10. Plus size is racist code, although there are plenty of plus sizes of all kinds here in Alameda. If #6 would like the people “from Oakland” (other code words) not to shop in Alameda where they will lay down their tax money and support our businesses, will he be willing to pay extra to make up for the lost revenue? Dunderhead!

  11. Kate love your Dunderhead comment…I have never heard that word before.

  12. I’m pretty sure APD is better than this even if some Alameda denizens have a little catching up to do….this dude was minding his own business, but a police made it her business. We’ve seen shopping while black can be lethal, fortunately “waiting while black” while hazardous, doesn’t always have lethal consequences, just tazing.

  13. Fortunately APD hasn’t spent any Homeland security funds on cattle prods and fire hoses, just a giant armored SUV. But also, according to a public of police acquisition our son found on line, at some point APD did acquire about 50 automatic rifles. The previous police chief monitored the social media and would respond to this sort of post. Wondering if current chief is out there? How’s it going with those license plate scanners? a big up swing in apprehension of bad guys because of long term data retention, or maybe just a few more stolen cars hits on the hot list requiring zero retention?

  14. The course of signing retail tenants in a shopping center–just like the course of true lvd or the opening of a new restaurant and bar–never runs as smoothly as one might hope. Remember when Long’s/CVS was ready to sign a contract to open a new, ground-level retail store at Oak and Santa Clara, and we were going to have a much-lower parking garage above it?
