ALAMEDA — City officials joined the developer that will transform the former Del Monte warehouse into housing and retail on Monday for a groundbreaking at the landmark site.
Mayor Trish Spencer and others sank shovels into the earth to mark the beginning of the project’s first phase — the construction of 31 affordable units.
The units, which will include senior housing, will be built on what was once a parking lot for the warehouse at Sherman Street and Buena Vista Avenue. They are expected to be available next year.
