Church Elder’s Craftsman Style Home is Getting Upgraded

By Erica Madison

A 1910 Alameda Craftsman style home is scheduled to receive a face lift.

On Aug. 6, 2009, the Historical Advisory Board approved a certificate to begin construction on 3016 Lincoln Ave. Alameda, CA.

Although the home is not on the Historical Building Study list, it is located next to other homes built in the 1900s. The certificate will allow for thirty percent of the single family residence to be demolished.

The demolition includes raising the home by two feet, demolishing exterior basement walls, adding a new porch, and turning the attic into a living space.

What is interesting about the house are its occupants. An internet search revealed that the previous owner of the home was A.J. Burgner, a local builder who built the First Presbyterian Church of Alameda. Once the church was built, Mr. Burgner served as a church elder.

The community has been served a public notice through an ad placed in the Alameda Journal, on July 17, 2009. Also, notices to citizens living within three hundred feet of the residence, were mailed about the demolition on July 16, 2009.

There were no objections to the demolition, therefore the Historical Advisory Board has granted the certificate for demolition.
