LATEST NEWS WITH AERO APARTMENTS, MANY FIRSTS FOR ALAMEDA POINT September 16, 2021

On Thursday, September 9th, development partners, community stakeholders, and City of Alameda officials gathered to commemorate a residence grand opening and several municipal milestones.

The new, mixed-use AERO Apartments contributes 200 market-rate apartments and 9,500 square feet of retail to a 68-acre redevelopment of Alameda’s Naval Air Station fronting San Francisco Bay. The project also marks the enrichment of Alameda’s nascent Alameda Point Waterfront District, set to encompass area restaurants and businesses, new outdoor parks and trails, and a ferry terminal that opened earlier this year.

AERO is the first new construction, for-lease multifamily project built in Alameda in the past two decades and will make a significant placemaking contribution to the West Atlantic Avenue view corridor and District gateway. The project takes design, material, and color cues from the site’s former hangar and maritime functions, while creating an enclosed courtyard, ground floor amenities, and rooftop lounge for residents. Project planning coordinated with the overall Alameda Point development to ensure a cohesive neighborhood-scale urban experience.

The ceremony included remarks from Alameda Mayor Marilyn Ezzy Ashcraft (who also cut the ribbon) and Alla and Michael Sorochinsky from Cypress Equity Investments, the project developer.

Years of effort went into the transformation of the naval base, which closed in 1996, into the Bay Area’s newest transit-oriented residential and retail district. “Rome wasn’t built in a day,” Mayor Ashcraft joked, then turned reflective. "But look how far we've come."
