Alameda Point Development, what now?

If you’re like me, you have a hard time getting your mind around development at the the former Naval weapons station. How many years has it been since the Navy left? And how is it that price tag for the property went from $1 to over a $100 million dollars? Confusing. Michele Ellson, writing in today’s Alameda Journal, has a good article about the development plan just submitted to the city by SunCal Companies, the current chosen developer. For more info on the plan, Lauren Do has this post, and this one, too. For all Lauren’s Point-related posts, go here.

    Sorry to maybe pick nits. Two posts in a row you made a “Naval Weapons station” reference. Concord had the Naval Weapons Depot, we had Alameda NAS, Naval Air Station, with jets and stuff. The jets mostly had the capacity to carry bombs, but it wasn’t a Naval Weapons station, per say.

    Not to pick nits, but it’s “per se,” not Versayles. :)
