Lawrence Berkeley Labs Spurns Alameda for Second Campus

Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory announced today that it has selected Richmond Field Station – not Alameda Point – as its preferred location for a second campus.

City of Alameda officials had pushed hard to win the prize, distributing lawn signs and holding a barbecue to get residents engaged.

“Each city, community, and their developer partners presented extremely thoughtful and well-formulated proposals for us to consider, for which we are deeply grateful,” says Berkeley Lab Director Paul Alivisatos. ”The communities of Albany, Alameda, Berkeley, Emeryville, Oakland and Richmond have been true partners in this process. While we can only pick one site, we hope that the new relationships we’ve made will continue to help us foster excitement in science. The enthusiasm is wonderful affirmation of the desire of the entire East Bay to be part of developing scientific solutions to some of the greatest challenges facing our society.”

The lab now moves on to get final approvals to move forward with the site from the US Department of Energy.

    It always seemed that Alameda was a long shot. Traffic through the tunnel at rush hour is not good and our new developer purchase city council majority will probably try to make it worse.

    Seems like this was only the appearance of due diligence – a number of cities spend money putting together proposals when Richmond was the only logical choice to begin with.
