New housing construction in Alameda…  my own little world.

This table decoration says it all.  Alameda is under construction!  Today the Alameda Association of Realtors gave its members a taste of what is going on for new housing along the estuary, from Park Street up to Target and then over to Alameda Point.  The whole meeting lasted 4 hours, including the bus ride to see it all in person.  Questions were answered by the developer’s reps, city reps (including Vice Mayor Izzy Ashcraft), and city staff. Questions flew freely while Andrew Thomas, the city’s lead Planner answered them throughout the day.  Check out this map from The Alamedan. (this is a bit dated but does show what’s going on).

Big thanks to our local Affiliate Sponsors that brought this wonderful event to us!  And go try a sandwich from Santoro’s Italian Market and Deli  they catered the lunch for us…fantastic…corner of 4th and Santa Clara.

Cool older units  there were 3 triplexes new to the market this week.  This is one of them…nifty location, cool older but maintained building, and some extra plus space (nice artist studio).
Get me to rehab this one is a triplex, as well.

I arrived in Alameda in 1973, as a new bride...with husband Carl Schumacher, both of us from Newport Beach. He was embarking on his career as a Naval Architect (i.e. yacht designer) under Gary Mull. Please see the 'ABOUT ME' page in this website! to see how it has all turned out! I'm so blessed!
