RECONNECTING ALAMEDANS
TO THEIR WATERFRONT

The hardworking Northern Waterfront of Alameda is now the setting for a vibrant new mixed-use community: Star Harbor. In collaboration with the city and community groups, a visionary team is creating new retail, office, recreational and residential spaces here that will reconnect the city with its waterfront. Today abandoned and in decay, Star Harbor will soon emerge as one of the most innovative urban destinations in the Bay Area.

REVIVING ALAMEDA’S HISTORIC WATERFRONT

Star Harbor takes its name from the fleet of salmon fishing ships that wintered here in the early 20th Century. Owned by the Alaska Packers, the famed “Star” fleet fast expanded to support a thriving commercial shipping industry. In 1916, Alaska Packers merged to form California Packing Corp, which soon after became Del Monte. In 1927, Del Monte built a massive brick warehouse along the harbor, embodying the era’s architectural style.

BENEFITS FOR ALL OF ALAMEDA

The redevelopment plans for Star Harbor will yield significant benefits for the city as a whole. Years of community outreach and collaboration with consistent groups have produced a plan for Warehouse 48 that will turn an underused historic building into a point of pride for generations of Alamedans. The Encinal Terminals site has the potential to do the same for an important section of Alameda’s waterfront.

A TRANSFORMATIVE PLAN

The historic Del Monte Warehouse is slated to become an exciting, pedestrian-friendly, sustainably designed place. The current plan will preserve the warehouse, designated as a city landmark. Within and around the five-acre building will be up to 380 flats, lofts and townhomes, and 30,000 square feet of commercial and retail space.

Planning for the transformation of the Encinal Terminals site will begin in August 2015.
