Landing update

Filed under: Alameda, Alameda Landing, Business — Lauren Do @ 6:03 am

It’s been a long time since the Alameda Landing map has been updated and there aren’t a whole lot of changes. I think Sally’s Beauty Supply has finally opened, but I haven’t checked for sure. CREAM supposedly is opening soon-ish but has had to delay their opening several times.

The one addition from a purely practical standpoint is the Bank of America ATM going in near Panda Express.  For the Bank of America customers out there you’ll know that Lucky currently houses the West End ATM, so having one west of Webster is pretty exciting.


According to the most recent “who’s coming to Alameda Landing based on Lease and LOI negotiations” another cellular store which brings Alameda Landing cell phone store count up to three (four if you count the fact that you can buy cell phone at Target).  A Hawaiian BBQ place which some people may be excited about.  Here’s the interesting one since there are only a few of these in Alameda: an Indian Restaurant.  Perhaps this will be the first non-chain restaurant in Alameda Landing, although I did uncover some Indian cuisine chains although they don’t appear to be as numerous as other ethnic cuisines.

Additionally there is a “Deli” listed under lease negotiations, which could be really really exciting as long as it doesn’t end up being a Subway or something like that.  Which would be depressing.


Also, appears that the Day Spa has moved from the second floor location and is considering the space next to Unleased by Petco.  A “Bakery” may be in the works, but honestly it will need to be pretty damn stellar to compete with the amazingness that is Crispians Bakery.  Or super cheap, but we have Safeway for that.  Or a beloved chain like Boudin.  Or something with a local connection, like a Semifreddis retail shop.

“Specialty Restaurant” is vague but it will complete the fourth corner that makes up the “center” of Alameda Landing.


  1. Please, dear Universe, let the bakery not be Panera or of that ilk. Boudin may be local but quality has gone down in recent years. A genuine bakery ala Semifreddis or La Farine would be most welcome on the West end.

  3. It was months ago, but I was under the impression that Boudin was coming. I feel like there was some big corporate news/event after that rumor, so maybe it got put on the back burner.

    That center really needs some kind of entertainment draw beyond “food and stuff.” Maybe that space next to Unleashed is big enough for a PlayCafe type business.

  4. Mariner Square Athletic Club is actually going to start painting the outside of the building which will be nice. I like Panera. I really like Habit Burger over In & Out. I have never been to Famous Dave’s so I am interested in trying that out. Krispy Cream…they are nasty…I use to work in a building which had one which had to close…people got tired of them real quickly but I not a donut fan to begin with.

  5. Too bad Catellus couldn’t figure out a way to get Mariner Square Athletic Club to be an anchor tenant in the Alameda Landing shopping center. They would have been a much more exciting anchor tenant than Michaels, and perhaps Catellus would have been able to attract a much better tenant mix than they have so far. At one point Mariner Square had big plans to upgrade the club including a spa. Not sure why it never happened! It’s so odd to have so many fast food restaurants so close to an athletic club, and a swim center. What a missed opportunity!

  6. I found a short list of healthy type food chain restaurants in less than 10 minute:

    1. Panera Bread
    2. Jamba Juice
    3. Veggie Grill
    4. Chop’t
    5. Tender Greens

    I’m sure there are lots more if one is interested. It’s like they completely ignored the healthy fitness demographics that is just a stone throw from the club and the swim center; not to mention the hundreds of workers in Marina Village that might want more than fast food for lunch – located less than 5 minutes away.

    And it would have been nice to have a sit down restaurant – something we could all be proud of — like Jamestown did with Trabocco.

  7. The Mariner’s Square Athletic Club has been closed for 10 days while the paint the outside and put in new carpet. They wonder why no one wants to work out there and they can’t keep their membership, we are going to ask for a refund of your dues for this month. Unfortunately, they painted It the same color…it looks like a meditation center then a gym. One would think they would have hired a color consultant to help them decided that color to paint it. Blue and white are not motivational colors, but it does look better.

    I miss working out at 24 hour fitness, it what better equipment, music, locker rooms, at 1/3 the price, but the only think is there isn’t one in Alameda.
