Don’t believe me or other posters on what Bayport looks like, well then, believe your own eyes.
This is the Main Street side of Bayport from Atlantic to Midway, imagine you are walking on the Bay Trail toward the Ferry or Rosenblum Cellars, if that helps. The chainlink fencing you can see on the Bayport side is temporary while that portion of the development is under construction.
Also, regarding access in and out of Bayport, there is indeed a sound wall that was built for Bayport, but only the section that borders Atlantic. I have modified this map of Bayport, red stars indicate pedestrian access points in and out of Bayport.
Additionally, orange highlighted areas are all on-street parking. There is plenty of parking around the park and school for folks who want to go to the park in Bayport but do not live in Bayport. Green indicates private mini parks. These are private in the sense that it is privately maintained. Just as the majority of streets in Bayport are private. Privately maintained. Meaning none of our tax dollars are used to maintain the majority of our own streets. Additionally, NIMBY has indicated that the structure of Bayport is like a “superblock” warned about by Jane Jacobs, urban planning goddess. However, wikipedia defines a superblock as:
A superblock is much larger than a traditional city block and is typically bounded by widely spaced, high-speed, arterial or circulating routes rather than by local streets…In a residential area of a suburb, the interior of the superblock is typically served by cul-de-sac roads.
Hmm…interiors served by cul-de-sac roads, now where is there an example of that in Alameda?
