Alameda Point Shovels mark the first phase of the $1 billion mixed-use transit-oriented waterfront project.

ALAMEDA, CA—Memorial Day celebrations are in the not-too-distant rear-view mirror, which is an appropriate coincidence for the start of development on the former Naval Air Station site. Alameda and its private partner, Alameda Point Partners LLC, recently celebrated the groundbreaking of the first phase of the $1 billion mixed-use transit-oriented waterfront development at the gateway to Alameda Point called Site A. The 68-acre development is located on the site of the former Naval Air Station Alameda which closed more than 20 years ago.
