Kiwanis Club to Host Speaker on Del Monte Project

ALAMEDA DEL MONTE WAREHOUSE

Jim Meek of Tim Lewis Communities will speak at the Wednesday, July 9, lunch meeting of the Alameda Kiwanis Club regarding the proposal for a mixed-use community master plan in and around the historic Del Monte Warehouse, 1501 Buena Vista Ave.

The Kiwanis meet at noon at the Elks Lodge, 2255 Santa Clara Ave. Lunch is optional.

One of only 30 designated historic landmarks on the Island, the exterior of the warehouse would be restored and preserved under the plan.

The city’s landmark Del Monte building on Buena Vista Avenue could be transformed into a mix of about 300 lofts, flats and townhouses and about 10,000 square feet of commercial space under a proposal that city officials are now considering. (A copy of the plans can be reviewed in the second-floor reference section of the Alameda Main Library.)

Kiwanis are volunteers who aim to change the world through volunteer service to children and communities. For more information, see the group’s website.
