The Design Review Board will hold a public hearing on a proposal to develop a 9.48-acre parcel east of the Park Street Bridge located at 2235 Clement Street, in the City and County of Alameda. The site is bounded by Clement Avenue on the south, Oak Street on the east, Elm Street on the West, and the Alameda/Oakland Estuary to the north. The Alameda Boatworks project is a proposed 182-unit single-family residential community that includes 156 single-family units and 26 multi-family units.
The development is proposed as a sustainable and ‘solar community’ within walking distance of the civic and commercial center of Alameda, with six separate neighborhoods connected by approximately two-acres of pedestrian pathways and waterfront open space. Along the estuary, the proposed project includes: public access parking; an approximately 60 to 100-foot-wide open space area with lawn, trails, and a 75-foot-wide ‘boardwalk-like’ space in the center of the waterfront; and an additional open space area in the center of the site that would connect the neighborhoods to the waterfront.
This is the first review by the BCDC Design Review Board.
