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.

Bob McDonnell (R) signs off on it. Since a surprise announcement two months ago, the Army has been pointing to May 28 to complete the transfer. The Army created a 60-day transition period “to make sure buildings are maintained, and to provide a smooth and orderly transition to state of Virginia’s management …

The General Services Administration is expected to seek proposals shortly to restore and lease historic Hangar One at Moffett Field in northern California. GSA will rely on section 111 of the National Historic Preservation Act to free the winning developer from using the hangar for activities related to the mission of the NASA Ames Research Center, reported the Mountain View Voice. “Section 111 gives us unique authority,” said David Haase, branch chief of the GSA. “Unlike enhanced use leasing authority NASA has used in the past, this will allow tenants to use the property for any use [they] would want to see within [section 111]. Before partners would need to have some direct connection to NASA,” he said. GSA will also offer companies the option of operating the airfield.

Merced County would have an easier time selling parcels at the former Castle Air Force Base, under legislation making its way to the floor of the California Senate. The elimination of redevelopment agencies in California in 2011 has prevented the county from directly selling parcels at the site, located about 100 miles east of San Jose, to interested companies. Without that authority, the county now is forced to hold a public auction, a process which can discourage firms from moving to the site …
