City to Issue Requests for Proposals for two Key Alameda Point Sites

The City of Alameda will soon request proposals for large tracts of land at Alameda Point.

The City of Alameda will soon request proposals for large tracts of land at Alameda Point.

The City of Alameda is set to issue Requests for Qualifications (RFQs) for two key pieces of land at Alameda Point totaling 150 acres.

The southern parcel, weighing in at 82 acres, borders one of the parcels of land the school district turned over to the city in a swap deal last month.

That parcel, referred to as Area B, is slated for “as much commercial square footage as deemed marketable” by developers that respond to the RFQ, to maximize the amount of sales tax revenue generated by the property.

While a premium retail outlet would be welcome at this site, a “big box” store would not, according to staff report.

Area A, north of the “B” site, would be targeted for 800 of the 1,425 housing units planned for Alameda Point, and an undetermined amount of commercial development as deemed suitable by responding developers.

This site would also be home to the retail core of the Alameda Point redevelopment project. The overall plan calls for ground floor retail on certain blocks, and public plazas and amenities in this area.

Developers will have six weeks from the issue date to respond to the RFQ, after which an interdepartmental city hall team will review the proposals and identify as many as 10, but no more, teams for interviews.

Those will be whittled down, with public input to no more than three developers for each site, with whom the city might negotiate a preliminary agreement. All of this might be realized by September of this year.

Alameda City Council will review the plan next Tuesday, April 15th, at its regular council meeting.
