Adios Chevys Restaurant Building

cardinal-point-iiThe long vacant Chevys restaurant building on Mariner Square Drive, on the estuary across from Oakland’s Jack London Square, would be razed to make way for a three-story building called Cardinal Point II, under a plan coming before the City of Alameda Planning Board next week.

The Chevys restaurant – the site of the first Chevys location – was closed in 2006 and is currently vacant, despite several ideas floated over the years.

Now, Oakmont Senior Living proposes to demolish the restaurant building and build a three-story, 40,300-square foot assisted facility called Cardinal Point II. The facility would have 52 units and would be across the street from the existing Cardinal Point facility.

A.V. Barnhill, owner of Barnhill Marina, which hosts several house boats on the estuary, wrote a letter of support for the project to the Planning Board, saying, “the current abandoned restaurant is quickly falling into disrepair, reducing the value of Barnhill Marina. Some of the floating home owners living here have expressed concern about their safety when walking by the building.”

The applicants plan public shoreline access improvements to the property as well.

    It will be sad to see it go but its been long vacant and another Cardinal Point facility will be a good addition to the neighborhood.
