Infrastructure week

Filed under: Alameda — Lauren Do @ 6:03 am

But, you know, for real and not a distraction from assorted national scandals.

Yesterday Alameda Point Partners aka developer of Site A at Alameda Point sent out a press release about their most recent accomplishment and it’s a biggie.  They’ve completed 50% of the backbone infrastructure for the site and all of the demolition for the site which is no small task.

They’re estimating that all of the infrastructure will be done later this year but all of the vertical developments are slated for groundbreakings really soon.

From the press release:

On Block 9 in Site A, CEI broke ground on July 1st on the construction of 200 market rate residential units. This new residential community will feature a fitness and cardio center, rooftop deck, resident lounge, co-working spaces and offers panoramic views of Alameda’s Seaplane Lagoon, the San Francisco Bay and the San Francisco skyline. The new development will also include approximately 10,000 square feet of retail/commercial space. The project’s designer is Pyatok Architects and James E. Roberts-Obayashi Corp. will be the general contractor.

Eden Housing recently commenced construction on 60 units of senior housing on Block 8, with a formal groundbreaking ceremony planned on July 11. Eden Housing will develop a total of 130 affordable housing units on Block 8, a two-acre parcel at the corner of West Atlantic and Orion Street. Eden Housing’s apartment homes will be affordable to extremely low, very low, and moderate-income households, and will be constructed in two buildings. One will provide 60 units of senior housing, while the other will provide 70 units of family housing. KTGY Architecture + Planning is the designer of both buildings.

Hill reports that Block 6, which has been purchased by Trumark Homes, will start vertical construction this summer. Trumark plans to build 64 townhomes. KTGY Architecture + Planning is the project’s designer and executive architect. Block 7 is currently optioned by Trumark for 60 townhomes, and APP expects to close on the sale of the property in mid-July 2019. The concept design architect is DLR Group|Kwan Henmi and the executive architect is KTGY Architecture + Planning.

On Block 11, TCR, in a venture with CEI, will be developing a 220-unit market rate apartment community that will be highly amenitized with larger units offering views of the San Francisco Bay and the downtown San Francisco skyline. The new residential community, named Alexan Pan Am, is slated to commence construction in late 2019, and will also include 15,000 square feet of neighborhood-serving retail and commercial space. The project is located across the street from the waterfront park on Seaplane Lagoon and close to the new ferry terminal. BAR Architects is the project’s designer.

I guess I thought I would never see anything built at Alameda Point proper until I was super old but this is all very exciting.  The fact that 50% of the infrastructure has been completed is huge.  Even if everything would implode tomorrow with the deal — I mean I can’t see that happening but if it did — the City would, at least, have this nice prepped parcel.

Did I mention how much I love model homes.  I can’t wait for those.

  1. With all the gloomy news in the world, it’s nice to have a ray of sunshine coming from the direction of Site A at Alameda Point. This is exciting news!

    I really appreciate the developer’s vision, the diversity of architects and design, the selection of builders, and the range of capital investment on this project. And we should never take for granted the master development skills it takes to bring a project of this type to this stage – with rising construction costs, and the construction surprises that can occur while building master backbone infrastructure on a shuttered military base.

    Not only does it take skill, it takes a commitment. Their achievement of these major milestones shows that Alameda Point Partners are truly committed to the success of Alameda Point.

  2. Its really great driving to RockWall every day and seeing the progress that is being accomplished. Only problem I have is watching the huge dump trucks hauling our Island through the tube into the void.

  4. I thought they already started building parts of the vertical construction for the last 2 or so months as they are pounding piles into the ground. You can hear it all day. It is not really vertical yet but most likely for the foundations of at least 2 projects.
