  4. Encinal Terminals, City of Alameda, Alameda County Briefing
    The Design Review Board will receive a briefing from North Waterfront Cove LLC (Tim Lewis Communities) for the Encinal Terminals Mixed-Use development on an approximately 23-acre, historically industrial site east of the Alaska Basin inlet, in the City and County of Alameda. The proposed master plan includes townhouses, multi-family residential structures, and retail development. Proposed public access includes a 2-acre waterfront park, a 2-acre waterfront plaza, and a 3-acre waterfront promenade. The 3-acre waterfront park and the 2-acre waterfront plaza would be developed on top of an existing wharf. The public promenade would extend the Bay Trail path and provide a launch facility for kayaks, paddle boards, and other non-motorized boats. The project proponent also proposes 300 public parking spaces, benches, bike racks, restrooms, drinking fountains, and trash containers. (Elena Perez) [415/352-3612;]

Francois Boulevard at 16th Street and within the proposed Bayfront Park and within Agua Vista Park in the City and County of San Francisco. Public access would be provided on the new pier for the ferry landing and on the water taxi landing. A ferry landing plaza and a water taxi landing plaza would be constructed to provide public access while accommodating queueing for the ferry terminal and taxi service.
