Early post on the Planning Board meeting on Monday, just because there are a few things I wanted to dedicate a specific post on as opposed to one big PB meeting agenda dump. A day before presentation to the City Council the Planning Board will get the first look at the Phase Zero plans for Site A at Alameda. Phase Zero is all the temporary activities and events that will build excitement before the actual construction starts. There are some great things planned.
Here’s a map of where some the physical structures will be placed in the interim:
The timing on some of these projects:
- Urban Beer Garden, October 2015, Spring 2016
- Indoor Venue (pop up galleries, food and wine festivals), Early 2016
- Bike Playground, early Summer 2016
- Waterfront pop up, Summer 2016
Large scale public art will be erected in Spring 2016 and Landscaping will start going in the Summer of 2016.
Here are some of the scheduled events, I’m really looking forward to the Tinkering School because if it becomes a permanent fixture at Alameda Point that would be fantastic for Alameda:
Between the Tinkering School Academy and the Bike Playground, I’m really pleased with the Phase Zero offerings for the first year. Hopefully if physical additions like the Beer Garden and the Bike Playground are successful they can be incorporated into the actual project and not dispensed of once construction starts.
