Sixteen years after Naval Air Station Alameda closed, the city of Alameda has obtained 1,379 acres of the base from the Navy, including 509 acres of land and 870 acres of submerged property at the site on San Francisco Bay. “This has been a long time coming and we’re incredibly excited that we can finally move forward with the development of Alameda Point,” said Mayor Marie Gilmore. The transfer would be the first of four from the Navy at Alameda Point under a no-cost economic development conveyance. The city’s reuse plan calls for about 1,425 homes and 5.5 million square feet of commercial space, reported CBS News.
