  3. Public Announcements
  4. Board Discussion: Latitude Mixed-Use Redevelopment Project, Contra Costa County (Pre-Application)
    This is the fourth review by the ECRB of the Laconia Development LLC’s mixed-use development on an approximately 13-acre site at the south of Brickyard Cove Road, west of the Richmond Yacht Club, and east of Dornan Drive and the Miller-Knox Regional Shoreline Park, in the City of Richmond, Contra Costa County. The project would include residential development and public access improvements in and outside of BCDC’s jurisdiction, including an approximately 5.5 acres of public waterfront park along the project’s approximately 1,200 square feet of shoreline. The public waterfront park component involves restoring an approximately 50,000-square-foot wharf built in the 1910s. The project was originally presented to the Board on June 7, 2016. Subsequently, there were three reviews by the Board, held on May 24, 2017, August 8, 2017 and November 1, 2017. During the last review, the Board made a motion to accept the engineering criteria of the project, with the condition that its sponsors provide written clarification responses to Board’s comments. The staff seeks the Board’s advice and recommendations on the project sponsor’s responses to the Board’s comments. (Erik Buehmann) [415/352-3645]
  5. Board Discussion: Alameda Landing Mixed-Use Development Project, Alameda County (Pre-Application)
    This is the second review meeting by the ECRB of the Alameda Landing project sponsored by the Catellus Development Corporation. The Board first reviewed this project’s criteria on March 21, 2017. The project would include a mixed-use development at the terminus of Fifth Street, in the City of Alameda, Alameda County. Since its original review, the project has been reduced in size and one-half of the property has been transferred to a different entity. The project would include a waterfront park at an existing historic concrete wharf within the property boundaries. The BCDC staff seeks the Board’s advice and recommendations on the engineering safety criteria used for the historic wharf that would be repurposed as public access.
