Over 100 businesses, employing more than 1,000 workers, are currently located there, benefiting from the large industrial buildings with adjacent deep water access.

Main Street Neighborhood Specific Plan:

On March 21, 2017, the City Council unanimously approved the Main Street Neighborhood Specific Plan which was a necessary first step before any new development could occur in the Main Street Neighborhood as required by the Zoning Amendment.  Approval of the Plan was a major leap forward towards the rebuilding of the Main Street Neighborhood and specifically the supportive housing facilities of the Alameda Point Collaborative, Building Futures for Women and Children, and Operation Dignity (the Collaborating Partners). 

The Main Street Neighborhood Plan (MSN) fulfills the General Plan policy objectives for a transit-oriented mixed-use, mixed income neighborhood with diverse housing options, parks and open spaces, neighborhood serving businesses and transitional commercial uses. The MSN Plan implements the vision through a variety of regulations, standards, and guidelines for both public improvements and private investment.  The MSN Plan is available here: MSN Plan(PDF, 104MB)

West Midway Project

On August 6, 2018, a Request for Qualifications (RFQ) was issued to solicit developers for the development of the West Midway Project.  The West Midway Project consists of 22.8 acres within the Main Street Neighborhood sub-district, located south of West Midway and bounded by Main Street on the east, Pan Am Way on the west and West Tower to the south (Exhibit 2).  The site was made available through the consolidation of the existing leased supportive housing occupied by Alameda Point Collaborative, Building Futures with Women and Children and Operation Dignity (Collaborating Partners) which consolidates over 34 acres to a 9.7-acre site (RESHAP). 

The RFQ focused on attracting developers interested in developing a transit-oriented mixed-use, mixed income neighborhood with diverse housing options, and a mix of commercial uses.  



The City’s adopted plans for Alameda Point envisions the development of a new ferry service between Alameda Point’s Seaplane Lagoon and San Francisco. The Seaplane Lagoon ferry will create a transit hub at the heart of Alameda Point, encouraging Alameda Point residents and employers/employees and existing Alameda residents to be transit users.
