ALAMEDA -- A proposal to build 89 residences on approximately seven acres on Buena Vista Avenue will come before the City Council on Tuesday, when it will consider adopting a tentative subdivision map for the project.
The 52 single-family homes and the 37 other units will be built near the Fortman Marina and the historic Del Monte Warehouse and are the second phase of Marina Cove, the housing project built a decade ago.
The vacant Chipman warehouse currently occupies the site at 1551 Buena Vista Ave., which also features a paved area for parking and truck deliveries.
City Manager John Russo is recommending the council approve the tentative map, which the Planning Board reviewed and unanimously backed in November.
The proposal from applicant John Shelton of Trident Partners LLC calls for the site to be split into 52 lots for single-family homes, and for 37 multifamily units to be built on a single lot. Six of the single-family homes will face Buena Vista Avenue.
Trident Partners originally proposed building 69 housing units, but city officials asked for an additional 30 units as a way to help meet the city's projected housing needs as outlined in the Housing Element of the General Plan.
Along with the Del Monte warehouse, the property is bordered by Ohlone Street, Clement Avenue and Entrance Way.
The project calls for two new streets: One street would extend north from Buena Vista Avenue to Clement Avenue and to
Among the conditions that the Planning Board added in November as part of approving the tentative subdivision map are that Trident Partners provide a traffic analysis for the project in connection with the Webster and Posey Tubes before it secures final approval.
The first phase of the Marina Cove was built on about 11 acres and features 83 residences.
The proposal before the council on Tuesday comes as other significant housing developments are under way in Alameda, including at the former Boatworks site at Oak Street and Clement Avenue, where crews are currently demolishing vacant warehouses. The owner recently proposed to build 240 units at the site, according to Andrew Thomas, acting city planner.
City officials also anticipate rezoning portions of the former Alameda Naval Air Station this year as a first step toward future homes.
In other business Tuesday, the council will consider renewing a lease for the Pacific Pinball Museum at 2100 Ferry Point at the former Navy base. The five-year lease calls for the museum to pay $28,632 for the first year with annual increases until $30,096 by the fifth year.
As part of the lease, the museum will also receive an offset of $847.50 to help pay for any roof repairs and replacement due to leaks.
