ALAMEDA -- The 275 homes proposed for Alameda Landing, the project near the Webster Tube that will feature a Target store and four new city parks, will include apartments, condominiums and single-family houses, the Planning Board will hear Monday.
An apartment building with 23 affordable units is also proposed for the 77-acre property that was once a supply center for the former Alameda Naval Air Station near the Oakland-Alameda Estuary.
On Monday, the board will consider approving a development plan and a density bonus for the project, a key step that will help clear the way for TriPointe Homes LLC to build the homes on about 22 acres at the site near Fifth Street and Willie Stargell Avenue.
Along with an apartment building of affordable housing, which would front Stargell Avenue, the development will feature 91 single-family detached homes, 79 two-story condominiums and 26 single-level apartments.
While board members will not review possible designs for the homes -- which will happen later -- they are on record as wanting some to feature layouts that would accommodate people as they grow older, such has having a bedroom and a full bathroom on the first floor.
The idea is to encourage a family to remain in the home throughout their lives, plus the layout could serve people who are disabled, according to city officials. The entire housing project will be built in a four-block grid, with each block having its own park, bike lanes
The goal is to create an area that blends with nearby neighborhoods and can be easily traveled, especially since 400,000 square feet of office space is also planned. Catellus Development Corp. is the master developer.
The property was once the former Fleet Industrial Supply Center and borders the Bayport housing development and is near College of Alameda. Along with homes, 23 acres of the site have been set aside for a shopping center, where Target will serve as the anchor tenant when it opens next October.
The store will employ about 200 people and is expected to generate up to $300,000 in annual sales tax revenue, according to city officials. An additional $200,000 could come from other business at the center.
In other business Monday, the board will consider approving a proposal to replace and relocate an existing 300-gallon liquid oxygen tank with a 3,000-gallon tank and a 500-gallon reserve tank in the parking lot of Alameda Hospital on Clinton Avenue.
The change is needed to meet mandatory state earthquake and fire safety regulations.
