ALAMEDA -- Visitors to the city's West End will be able to enjoy meals at In-N-Out Burger under a proposal from the developer behind Alameda Landing, the mixed-use project of homes and retailers near the Oakland-Alameda Estuary.
Along with the fast food chain, Catellus Development Corp. is proposing a Chase bank for the vacant lot at Willie Stargell Avenue and Webster Street, as well as a gas station that would be part of the Safeway supermarket proposed for Alameda Landing's retail center, which neighbors the lot.
Construction is already underway on the center's Target store, scheduled to open in October.
The In-N-Out Burger would feature a drive-thru lane and stay open until 2 a.m. The Chase branch would have two drive-thru ATMs, and the gas station would stay open 24 hours and have nine pumps and a kiosk.
While the board will be briefed about the proposal on Monday, it will not consider a recommendation to actually approve it until July 8.
The vacant lot, which totals about 2 acres and is considered part of the overall Alameda Landing development, is adjacent to the Mariner Square Athletic Club and directly across from the northern entrance of the College of Alameda.
City officials initially identified the lot as a site for up to 60 homes under a state law that requires local governments identify and show how they will meet existing and projected housing needs. But Alameda officials say preliminary applications for residential projects in other areas of the city -- such as the Boatworks at Oak Street and Clement Avenue -- clears the way for retail uses on the lot.
Alameda Landing is located on 77 acres near the estuary that were once a supply center for the former Alameda Naval Air Station. The project calls for 275 homes -- including condominiums and single-family homes -- and an apartment building with 23 affordable units.
The Target store that will anchor the project's 285,000-square-foot retail center will employ about 200 people. The 45,000 square foot Safeway would be a "lifestyle" supermarket, meaning it will likely include a cafe and deli and offer organic and specialty foods, as well as possibly have olive and sushi bars, according to Catellus officials.
Some 400,000 square feet of office space is also planned for Alameda Landing.
