Welcome to the best kept secret in California (at least for now).

Alameda is a special place, a cosmopolitan mixture of technology and biotech firms, art and cultural opportunities, and unique dining and retail set among the quaint friendliness of a small town. And did we mention our unparalleled water views?

Here, residents lend their voice to government and community affairs and love the endless outdoor activities our island offers. Our businesses range from charming, independent shops and award-wining restaurants to publicly traded firms creating ground-breaking technology in the healthcare, aerospace, and biotech arenas.

All of the amazing things our businesses are doing are set against majestic views of the San Francisco and Oakland skylines as well as the San Francisco Bay. Our area is rich in history that is deeply embedded in our culture. Best of all, our sunsets are the perfect wind-down to a wondrous day.

Here, at the Alameda Chamber & Economic Alliance, we are the voice of business through advocacy and assistance, creating an environment where all ages and backgrounds can thrive, reaching out to show off our island as a delightful vacation spot, and bringing the resources to businesses that are necessary for them to excel and thrive in a pandemic and post-pandemic environment.

We welcome you to sample this special place where people still greet one another with a friendly hello. Whether you are a business owner looking to relocate or open a business, or you’re looking for an ideal spot to get away from it all without giving up convenience, or you’re a long-time resident who just wants to understand the growth of your community and sample some of the exciting venues, we invite you to spend some time seeing our area with new eyes.

The Chamber offers the following Signature Events, which provide a great opportunity to learn more about our area and network with local leaders.

Mayor’s Address & City Updates:

Business Excellence Awards: Alameda Economic Forecast:

a recap of what’s been done and what’s on the horizon, featuring local leaders including the mayor and department heads featuring peer-nominated, local recipients a spotlight on the growth and economic development projects underway and still in planning

We also host The Alameda Chamber Foundation Golf Tournament Fundraiser each summer at the award-winning Corica Park golf course. The fundraiser benefits our student scholarship pro gram as well as other quality of living initiatives like ending homelessness and helping support affordable housing.

Questions? Planning a vacation, relocation, or business opening? We’re happy to help with your needs and put you in touch with those people and businesses that can help you see and experience the beauty of our island. Come see for yourself. We’re looking forward to meeting you.

Madlen Saddik • CEO & President Alameda Chamber & Economic Alliance

We have it all: a coastal setting rich in maritime and naval history, convenient access to large cities minus the urban headaches, top education, entertainment and cultural activities, and outdoor attractions, not to mention the City is home to many prominent companies and an enterprising workforce. Alameda is a great place to live, work, and play.

So, what makes Alameda special? Any of the things I just mentioned, of course!

But behind them all, we have a diverse group of residents interested in building a community that will be a model of livability, sustainability, and creativity. In Alameda, we also value our natural resources and want to protect and nurture them for generations to come.

We are focusing on smart growth that helps us capitalize on innovation and development while still protecting our water, wildlife, green spaces, and natural resources. We pursue ways to stay healthy and connected, including offering some of the best bicycle paths in the Bay Area. With striking water views and the chance to witness nature’s beauty at every turn on our paved trails, visitors and residents love to “bike” Alameda. Even our roads boast protected bike lanes. We are a community that loves our bikes and cycling.

We encourage volunteerism and advocate for people to pursue their goals in a safe environment. And we nurture our resident’s dreams to open businesses and support businesses looking to relocate somewhere with better commutes. Our residents and visitors enjoy our outdoors, and we want them to be able to for a long time. In Alameda, we’re focused on all parts of increasing quality of life for everyone.

As the Board Chair of the Alameda Chamber & Economic Alliance, I warmly welcome you to our beautiful island city. If you are curious about job opportunities or the economic climate, please let us know. Alameda is a wonderful place to call home, whether that is for a few hours or a lifetime.

The Alameda Chamber & Economic Alliance is the “voice of business” in the 21st century. Through advocacy and economic development efforts, we are improving our community and assisting businesses to reach unprecedented success during one of the most trying times in the past century.

Since the beginning of the pandemic, we have launched many programs to assist businesses, but two of our most impactful efforts were the creation of the Alameda Chamber Foundation and the Leadership Alameda program.

The Alameda Chamber Foundation is a 501(c)(3) created to conduct and support the Chamber's educational and charitable programs focusing on business, leadership, and community challenges/development. The foundation proudly distributes scholarship funds to high school students who graduate from Alameda schools every year. The Foundation awarded $33,000 in 2021.

The Foundation serves to educate the people who live and work in Alameda on the conditions necessary for our businesses and the community to thrive, how business positively impacts our community, as well as emerging issues and creative solutions to shape the future.

The Foundation provides ongoing leadership development, education programs that provide unique opportunities for learning and growth, and solutions to important community problems like homelessness, workforce development, and economic development.

Leadership Alameda continues these education initiatives by introducing an annual class of future leaders to major facets of the community through an informative and interactive professional development program.

Leadership Alameda’s participants partake in hands-on educational sessions, as well as tours and conversations with community leaders in various industries.

It is an ideal program for people in all industries, at all career levels, and from all backgrounds. Leadership Alameda recruits lifelong learners with an interest in becoming an empowered leader on a grassroots level by covering major areas important to the Alameda community, acting as an incubator for future leaders and community success.

The sessions run from September - June with an application period for the next class beginning each January. If you would like to know more about these programs or others, contact us at I 3

HOURS IN Alameda 48

Alameda, California is a chooseyour-own-adventure vacation with stops that will make every kind of visitor happy, from families to foodies, kite surfers to pinball aficionados, history buffs to fans of architecture, and so much more. If you’re in town for a couple of days, or even just a long layover when flying into Oakland or San Francisco, here are the mustsee suggestions. But, our first suggestion is to rearrange your schedule as you’ll want to spend a lot more time in this gem of a town. I 5


HOURS IN Alameda

Day 1

Who Doesn’t Love an island?

First, one of the things that makes Alameda so special–and residents will mention this first nearly every time you ask them–is that the town is located close to some terrific cities like San Francisco and Oakland–but it is an oasis onto itself. So often when a town is near a city, it becomes engulfed by the larger metropolitan area, and it loses itself. This is not true of Alameda. Alameda is close (just a quick drive over a bridge or ride on a ferry), but it’s worlds away from its neighbors.

Take the Ferry

The island is a true escape (but convenient for business or vacation travelers). The most memorable way to approach the island is on a ferry crossing the deep majestic blue of the San Francisco Bay. There are three ferry stops in Alameda: the Main Street Alameda Ferry Terminal, the Harbor Bay Ferry Dock, and the new Seaplane Lagoon Ferry Terminal. Riders of all ages will enjoy the waters as a more relaxing way to approach the area. The zero-emission fleet of ferries features air-conditioned interiors (complete with, snack bar) as well as deck access.

The ride is a memorable way to capture some “Instagrammable” moments that you just can’t get from a car when accessing the island by one of the bridges or tunnels.

Eat at an Alameda Institution

Food is the heart of any community, and you can tell a lot about a place by its food. Alameda offers an enormous number of dining options for all budgets. One of the community’s landmarks and long-time dining establishments is Ole’s Waffle Shop.

Since 1927, Ole’s has used the same recipe for its light and fluffy pancakes and golden waffles. Plus, it caters to early birds by opening its doors at 5:30 AM MondayFriday and 6:00 AM on Saturday and Sunday. Hungry diners crowd into the small location for breakfast, lunch, and dinner, raving about the perfect golden, crispy on the outside, fluffy on the inside waffles that the restaurant is known for. Locals will tell you their signature coffee blend and burgers are tops as well. When you visit, expect a wait.

There’s no rushing this kind of goodness, and word has gotten around in their nearly 100 years of serving up smiles.

Don’t forget to pick up some of the pancake/waffle mix and/or coffee so you can enjoy the taste of Ole’s in between visits.

Looking for areas to explore the island on foot?

Some of our favorites include:

* Jean Sweeney Open Space Park (1925 Sherman Street) is a delightful reuse project built on the former Alameda Beltline Railroad property. Visitors to this 27-acre park love the paved walking and biking trails. It’s also the perfect spot for an outdoor lunch or dinner with barbecue pits and picnic areas for rental.

* Washington Park (1228 8th Street), is one of Alameda’s largest parks. It’s divided into two sections--Upper Washington (bordered by Central Ave & 8th St), where the playground, recreation center, basketball courts, and the Arnerich Field are located and Lower Washington, where visitors can enjoy tennis courts, the dog park, fitness trail, and Toby Chavez Field.

* Elsie Roemer Bird Sanctuary, a salt marsh habitat for aquatic birds and some endangered species offering coastline bird-watching and gorgeous sunset views. Visitors also have easy access to walk across the bridge to Harbor Bay.

* With easy access from Webster Street, Robert W. Crown Memorial State Beach is a favorite for walking and biking. It’s also a prime area to watch kite boarders, paddle boarders, windsurfing, and wind foiling. Don’t miss Doug Siden Visitor Center at Crab Cove while you’re here. It provides a nice education on bay water life including an 800-gallon aquarium system, interactive stations to view microscopic animals, an exhibit that allows you to build a crab from the inside out, and you’ll get a good laugh as you enjoy a lug worm’s view of the mudflats.

Take a Walk

Alameda is a wonderfully walkable community. In fact, the City has made a “Safe Streets” commitment to ensure safer crossings that protect pedestrians.

If meandering along windy strollerfriendly trails is the type of walk you like best, don’t miss the new three-acre waterfront park in Alameda Point. The playground there is a favorite among families. It’s set among landscaped passages and lush plantings. This new waterfront park, located at the west end of Atlantic Avenue, boasts a waterside walkway, picnic benches, inviting green spaces, and access to a new stretch of the Bay Trail. Check out the concrete walkway embedded with a chronology depicting the site’s historic past.

Whether you want to stroll slowly along the water or meet up with friends for a picnic lunch on a sunny day, this outdoor space was created with the community in mind and serves as a spot for all to enjoy. As April Phillips, the landscape architect of the park, told the San Francisco Chronicle, “We wanted to create a variety of ways for people to experience the waterfront.” And that’s exactly what they did.

The water front park is the latest project to open among the residential and mixeduse area that includes 128 subsidized apartments designed to accommodate low-income families and formerly homeless veterans.

Another element of interest at the waterfront park is the nearly 40-foot-tall steel sculpture entitled Beken. The name is old English for “beacon.” The structure is comprised of about 120 pieces that range in size from 10 inches to almost 10 feet in

diameter and weighs about 15,000 pounds. The piece was designed digitally and was then laser cut and rolled into shape with a hydraulic bender. It was fabricated at a studio in upstate New York, assembled, and then broken down into pieces for its crosscountry trek on flatbed trailers. It was then reassembled on site with the top attached by crane in August 2022. The structure will be lit at night so that it can be enjoyed after the sun sets as well.

Don’t miss the walking tour of Alameda led by Dennis Evanosky. It’s a wonderful way to soak in the history and get to know the island from someone who knows Alameda—and all it stories—past and present. Tour locations change, please consult the Alameda Post website for upcoming tours.

Enjoy A Moveable Feast

Every Saturday, you can enjoy the fun, foodie adventure of the food trucks located at South Shore Center. There’s usually a scrumptious mix of Cajun, seafood, ice cream, and others to explore.

After a filling meal from the mobile feasts, it’s time for another Alameda institution and then more outdoor adventure.

Get Into the Holiday Spirit

If you’re in town around the holidays, take a stroll around the many Victorian homes and bungalows on the island. The enchanting light displays mixed with our temperate climate make for pleasant memories and the type of social media content that will make your friends envious. An island favorite is Thompson Avenue, also known as Christmas Tree Lane. The lavish decorations and festive scenes seem to get bigger and bolder every year.

Alameda is a bike-friendly area with several bike trails. About twenty years ago, the plan to repurpose the abandoned Alameda Belt Line Railroad into a multiple-use trail across the island of Alameda began. The Cross Alameda Trail, a segment of the Bay Trail, has been opened in phases with bike trails in the following areas: Ferry Way & Seaplane Lagoon Ferry; Alameda Point/Site A; Ralph Appezzato Memorial Parkway & Atlantic Gap; Constitution Way to Sherman Street (AKA Jean Sweeney Open Space): A commuter trail alignment that maintains the existing Class II bike lane along Atlantic Avenue and a recreational Class I path through Jean Sweeney Open Space Park; Marina Cove Clement Extension: Cycletrack along Clement near Marina Cove from Entrance Road to Paru; Clement Avenue: Cycletrack along Clement Avenue plus Class I path along the available shoreline; with several others scheduled to open in 2022.

Alameda Bicycle is an excellent resource for biking trails in the area, including maps and details of each trail.


Since Alameda is an island, there are plenty of places to explore in a kayak. If you’re new to the sport or if you have small children, you may want to consider renting a double kayak and taking a kayak tour.

Alameda? Why

Alameda is an oasis in the bustling Bay Area. It is easily accessible and yet removed enough from its larger neighbors to make people feel like when they take a bridge, tube, or ferry to access the island, they are leaving the stress of the world behind.

While many of us dream of that great escape, we also long to be in the center of arts and culture, business, and job opportunities. Getting away sounds great, but getting too far away comes with its own challenges. With Alameda, you can enjoy a quieter side of life without sacrificing convenience or availability of luxuries and opportunities.

Lisa Maxwell, the Community Development Department Director of the City of Alameda describes the area by saying, “It’s a small town in the midst of a big urban area, a respite with its own personality, striking architecture, and wonderful people.”

Alameda has it all and you can too. I 15

Alameda? Why

We have the power!

The oldest public electric utility west of the Mississippi was created - right here in Alameda!

Today, the City of Alameda is still in the power business and is still a trendsetter. Now known as Alameda Municipal Power (AMP), we have survived a century and a quarter of utility mergers that created utility behemoths in other places.

AMP has provided safe, reliable power

Life in Alameda

Alameda’s magic is hard to resist. It’s the type of place people come to visit and choose to stay at. There are few areas that successfully combine a laid-back island vibe with easy access to large cities the way our beloved island does. With Alameda’s proximity to San Francisco and Oakland, we’re a community that is easily accessible and yet worlds away.

Our 23-square mile “beach” town offers a slower-paced, less crowded, small-town feel from its city neighbors without sacrificing the fun or convenience of a hip location. We are also a growing base for life science and technology companies that are choosing to call this area “home.”

Alameda has a lot to offer visitors and residents alike. Real estate options include apartments and condominiums overlooking the Bay, Craftsman bungalows near urban parks, Victorian historic properties, mixed-use shopping and dining districts, and quaint ranch-style homes. Whether shopping for luxury, trendy new builds, or more affordable family options, Alameda has what you’re looking for.


Alameda has a nicely balanced economy. No matter what industry you work in, you are likely able to find opportunities.

The following industries are major employers and growing in Alameda:

Biotech and Life Sciences

at lower rates without sacrificing service to power our community. We maintain local control so that we can re-invest in the island and provide value to enrich our lives, businesses, and the community. In fact, since 1887, AMP has contributed more than $75 million to the City of Alameda’s General Fund.

Alameda is THE Place for Business

Whether you are looking to move your family or your business to Alameda, our area is a selling point. With a quieter way of life, some of the Bay Area’s most affordable housing, top schools at all levels, a variety of neighborhoods and housing options, a growing biotech and life sciences industry, and available office space, Ala meda is a place you can make your mark.

• Retail • Education • Healthcare • Advanced Manufacturing • Technology • High tech, Blue tech, Green/clean and Space tech • Maritime • Restaurants & Bars • Tourism/Hospitality • Entertainment/Art & Culture

Alameda is home to many large and publicly traded businesses on the cutting-edge of their industries. While speaking with three of them: Penumbra, Astra, and Exelixis, we discovered that while they work in different fields, what attracted them to Alameda was very similar: continued growth opportunity, a central location with a good commute, the ability to design their space and hire employees who are top in their field.

Get to Know Your Future Business Neighbors

Hear why relocation to Alameda is a great step for your business—or your career—from people who are working (and thriving!) in the area. We sat down with the following professionals to learn what sets Alameda apart.

Joe Ernst - Founder of srmERNST

Alameda offers lower-cost real estate and good value. Businesses can negotiate excellent facilities and more attractive lease terms at a better rate compared to other upstream markets. In terms of space, Alameda offers a lot of flexible facilities that are ideal for manufacturing and prototype development. It’s a business-friendly community where you can accomplish a lot in a short time, getting more done quickly.

The power utility also is a draw. Many of these advanced manufacturing, life science, and material science companies need power. With Alameda having its own utility, businesses can get carbon-free and cheaper power.

Additional draws include:

• Low business taxes • Less red tape

• Flexible zoning • Safe community

• Educated workforce

• Employees want to live here

Penumbra. Inc.

Penumbra, Inc., is a global healthcare company focused on innovative therapies. Penumbra designs, develops, manufactures, and markets novel products. Its products address challenging medical conditions in markets with significant unmet need. Penumbra supports healthcare providers, hospitals, and clinics in more than 100 countries. The company is headquartered here in Alameda and is part of our growing life science corridor.

We recently sat down with Jennifer Heth, the Public Relations Director for Penumbra and asked her the following:

What brought Penumbra to Alameda? Why did you think it was a good climate / environment to open a business?

Alameda’s proximity to other health/ med-tech companies, transportation centers like the Oakland Airport and Harbor Bay ferry terminal, and other resources made the city an ideal location for Penumbra’s headquarters. Being surrounded by a vibrant community heavily focused on innovation helps attract top talent and fosters a culture of creative thinking – a perfect combination to fuel our continued growth.

In fact, Alameda is so attractive that many of Penumbra’s workforce now call Alameda home.

What is Penumbra most passionate about?

Penumbra’s focus has been to build a business that develops the latest technologies to help as many people as possible by identifying areas that no other company is in, or has succeeded in, and addressing complicated medical conditions in a novel way.

What kind of employees are you looking for?

Penumbra has more than 3,800 employees around the world and is rapidly growing. We are looking for employees who want to be at the forefront of technology that is revolutionizing the treatment of some of the world’s most devastating diseases and enjoy being part of an energetic team. For career opportunities, please visit: https://jobs.lever. co/penumbrainc.

How do you feel about the growing life sciences and technology “enclave” that Alameda is becoming?

It’s been a privilege to be part of such a dynamic community that is focused on advancing innovation for the purpose of improving the health of others. We want to create technologies that help as many people as possible and being able to do that with a larger community that shares that mindset is wonderful. I 17

Alameda? Why

Astra: A New Kind of Space Race

Astra’s mission is to Improve Life on Earth from Space™ by creating a healthier and more connected planet.

Astra offers the lowest cost-per-launch dedicated orbital launch service of any operational launch provider in the world. Astra delivered its first commercial payload into Earth orbit in 2021, making it the fastest company in history to reach this milestone, just five years after it was founded in 2016. Astra (NASDAQ: ASTR) was the first space launch company to be publicly traded on Nasdaq.

Exelixis: Striving to Defeat Difficult-to-Treat Cancers

For a long time, access to space has been slow and expensive. Astra is transforming the industry with their Silicon Valley mentality of rapid iteration and innovation. This vertically-integrated company selected Alameda as its corporate headquarters because of its unique blend of capabilities. The company could design, build and test their launch systems all in one place, which is difficult to find in other parts of the Bay Area. The location at the Naval Air Station in Alameda supports the growth of this spacetech company by enabling them to bring in top talent and providing the facility to make materials into rockets. This location at Alameda Point created a competitive advantage and provided considerable benefits to Astra, including the ability to reuse the engine test cells that were originally used for jet engine testing. They also have the claim to fame of being the only rocket company in town.

Astra has large goals and ambition, tied to an exciting culture. The company has a bias toward action, learning quickly, and getting things done with a company culture that places no emphasis on hierarchy or title. Astra is actively recruiting for people who want to be a part of something transformative.

Founded in 1994, Exelixis, Inc. (NASDAQ: EXEL) is a commercially successful, oncology-focused biotechnology company that strives to accelerate the discovery, development, and commercialization of new medicines for difficult-to-treat cancers. Following early work in model system genetics, it established a broad drug discovery and development platform that has served as the foundation for its continued efforts to bring new cancer therapies to patients in need. The company is committed to reinvesting in its business to maximize the potential of its pipeline. By supplementing its existing therapeutic assets with targeted business development activities and internal drug discovery, the company is delivering the next generation of Exelixis medicines and helping patients recover stronger and live longer.

Dr. Michael Morrissey, President and CEO, explains why the company operates out of Alameda. “The whole San Francisco area was inundated with biotech companies and the idea of moving, especially to the East Bay, was really attractive. There’s a very large biotech community living in the East Bay and the commute to get over a bridge and the travel times are horrendous. The idea was that if we moved to the East Bay — and we could find a home that we could grow into with our ambitious growth plans — then we’d have the opportunity to really attract talent (especially living in East Bay) and would look for a great company, a great culture, and most importantly a great commute. That’s turned out to be the case…We’ve grown and have really changed dramatically. The majority of our employees live in the East Bay and we’ve been growing dramatically (even during the pandemic)…

“It’s a big draw having this great campus. It’s beautiful and we’re right on the Bay. A reasonable commute really makes a big difference for people.”

Part of the draw to Alameda was the growth opportunity for the company. They didn’t want something they’d outgrow quickly, and they liked the idea of a campus. Exelixis took over existing offices previously held by the telecom industry in the 90s and they made the space their own. Dr. Morrissey adds, “We took over two buildings and then did a complete renovation with 1851 being our headquarters. 1801’s first floor was designed to have office space for development and lab space on the second floor. Since then, we have taken control over another two and a half buildings on the campus. We renovated one completely and that tripled our lab space for our discovery scientists. We took over 1601, which is 37,000 square feet of office space that supports a couple hundred of our team members. We’ve grown dramatically with the existing footprint that was there when we moved in during 2018. Plus, we are building a brandnew headquarters. It’s 200,000 square feet of new construction and will house about 900 people at 1951 Harbor Bay Parkway. We’re super excited about it. It’s going to give us a chance to add a lot more people.”

“We continue to have these very aggressive growth plans as we develop our drugs that we either had existing or are currently making as part of our discovery operations… It’s a fantastic time to be in Alameda. We had this

“Astra is transforming the industry with their Silicon Valley mentality of rapid iteration and innovation.”

vision to put a stake in the ground, build a new home, a new campus around this business campus concept and we’ve done that. We couldn’t be happier. We’ve been growing because we tapped into great talent in the East Bay and surrounding areas as well.”

I 19

Getting Here

One of Alameda’s biggest kept secrets is that we are an accessible island. People assume islands are difficult to get to, but in the past two years especially, more people have developed an appreciation for having it all. We’re easy to get to, and Alameda is a place you’ll want to stay. We have amazing job opportunities and natural beauty.

Maybe we should consider changing our name to All-ameda?

As an (accessible) island, you’re never far from any of the Bay Area attractions. San Francisco is just 18-20 minutes away by ferry or 40 minutes by car, and Oakland is right across the bridge.

Alameda is a multi-modal community with many transportation options. We offer convenient bus and shuttle service, train service (commuter and AMTRAK, part of the Capitol Corridor), ride sharing and multiple ferry routes to get you where you need.

Multiple companies are expanding the options for both residents and businesses by reusing the available space in unique and creative ways.

Visionaries & Extraordinary Developments

Alameda’s smart growth is due to the extraordinary contributions of bright developers.

Here are a few with projects on the island.

Jonah Hendrickson, Storehouse Lofts at Alameda Point

With a maker’s heart, Jonah Hendrickson (the developer behind the Berkeley Kitchens) sees things differently from some developers. He looks for interesting space and the quality of light. Those are two of the things that attracted him to Alameda Point. Working within the confines of historic buildings and their nuances, the Storehouse Lofts project had its initial challenges. But now the 196-unit of live/workspace is ready for pre-leasing.

Named after the naval storehouse, the spaces have retained much of the building’s original character, including concrete columns where with a keen eye you can still make out the grain of wood that was used as a form when the columns were set.

The in-building gathering spaces were constructed to enable a collaborative work/live environment to inspire creative minds to exchange ideas and propel their businesses forward.

Stephanie Hill, Trammel Crow

The 68-acre development on the former Naval Air Station at Alameda Point has garnered a lot of attention because of its past fits and starts, but this multi-generational, mixed-type project is nearing completion. With 800 units, 25% of it marked as affordable and senior housing, the convenient location with ferry access has made it very popular. Residents will appreciate ten acres of open park space, expansive water views, a children’s area, and basketball courts nearby a variety of restaurants, shopping, and entertainment options.

All this new growth has replaced a fenced-off military zone of squat buildings and large parking lots. Nowhere are the changes Alameda is undergoing

more evident than in this area’s revitalization and new use.

Dan Poritzky, Dan McGill, The Research Park at Marina Village

In just over three years, 41 new life science companies from various parts of the Bay Area have relocated to Alameda. That’s in part because The Research Park focuses on three different areas: transportation, amenities, and capital. From a transportation perspective, there is easy access to water taxi service, shuttles to public transit, free parking, and the commercial ferry service. They strive to be the apex of local transportation.

The Research Park clients have access to amenities they won’t get elsewhere such as the Encinal Yacht Club, which allows them to swim, sail, kayak, and more. There’s a tiki bar on the waterfront overlooking Oakland and San Francisco. There are onsite boot camps and yoga classes. Tenants of this 200-acre, 32-building campus also enjoy the Retreat, the centrally located tenant amenity building at 2020 Challenger Drive in Alameda.

The Research Park invests the capital so that clients have everything they need such as CRISPR technology for life science companies. With clients in life sciences, material science, and food tech, The Research Park ensures things are built out the right way for each of their clients, taking on a role of partner in their success.

Josh Roden, Brookfield Properties

Brookfield Properties and Catellus were selected by the City of Alameda to collaborate with MidPen Housing and RESHAP partners to develop the West Midway property. Consistent with the Alameda Point Main Street Neighborhood Specific Plan, West Midway will become a new mixed-income, mixeduse neighborhood of 789 homes and up to 10,000-square-feet of neighborhood commercial. The project will redevelop supportive housing operated by Alameda Point Collaborative, Operation Dignity and Building Futures with Women and Children (collectively referred to as RESHAP) as an integral part of this new neighborhood.

Rooftop party at Storehouse Lofts at Alameda Point

The East Bay is home to several emerging growth industries, including advanced manufacturing, biomedical, clean tech, and life sciences that are foundational to our region’s prosperity and quality of life. Some industry subsectors have more than doubled in size over the past five years, and despite the uncertainty created by the pandemic, a number of them are continuing to grow at a rapid pace. The City of Alameda can be proud about having a proportionately larger number of jobs in these sectors than many other parts of the region and also feel confident that the development of Alameda Point and other promising sites will help to perpetuate this growth. Indeed, the city’s efforts to support expanding and growing the local housing supply is another important ingredient for helping to support this virtuous cycle of economic growth and investment, particularly as the city is also continuing to work hard to preserve and protect existing and new local-serving businesses that have been more adversely affected by the COVID-19 pandemic.

If you ask people living in Alameda what brought them to the area, many will tell you the schools. Those with families or thinking about them in the future know Alameda Unified School District (AUSD) offers excellent education opportunities at all levels. The island also has a number of highly regarded Charter and Private schools. Our schools are also a major draw for businesses looking to relocate as they know they will a have well-educated workforce to draw from and the schools will be a plus to employees moving to the area.

Alameda Unified School District

AUSD serves the needs of over 9,600 students, from pre-school through high school. Its focus on equity for all means a student base that reflects its commitment to diversity with demographics breaking out to 36% Asian, 29% White, 16% Hispanic, 8% Black/African American, and 9% of two or more races. About 27% of AUSD students are from low-income households and 17% are English learners.

AUSD’s nine elementary schools, four middle schools, and four high schools offer a wide range of educational opportunities, including STEAM programs, sustainability focus, intervention services, arts integration, and newcomer classes for students who are new to the US. The high schools have strong career/technical education programs, representing top areas of interest for students including broadcast journalism, sports medicine, childcare/early education, and genomics, as well as honors, AP, and visual and performing arts classes.

College and More

The continuation program at island High School assists students who need extra support to graduate. Alameda also has a magnet high school — the Alameda Science and Technology Institute — which offers an early college program that provides students opportunities to earn college credits and/ or an Associate of Arts degree while in high school.

The College of Alameda is a public community college that is part of the Peralta Community College District. The school offers a variety of courses of study including 60+ degrees and certificates. The school of over 6,000 students advocates not only academic excellence but community involvement as well.

City Government & Planning Information

Vision Zero

Vision Zero is an international movement that aims to reduce traffic deaths and life-changing injuries to zero, while increasing safe, healthy, equitable mobility for all. It addresses all collisions, whether people travel by foot, wheelchair, bike, motorcycle, car, or truck. Alameda’s Vision Zero efforts are guided by its Vision Zero Action Plan and Vision Zero policy

Vision Zero Updates Building Safer Streets

To achieve its Vision Zero goals, the City is working to create roads where everyone can get around safely, whether they travel by bus, car, bike, foot, wheelchair or other mobility device. A safer, complete street encourages people to drive at safe speeds and offers safe, comfortable passage for people walking and biking.

The City uses crash data to prioritize street investments, focusing on its High Injury Corridors and on interventions that reduce dangerous behaviors like speeding and failing to yield to a pedestrian.

One element of a safer street is reduced speeds.

Studies show that the risk of severe injury or death goes up dramatically as speeds increase above 20 miles per hour. Most of Alameda’s streets have posted 25 mile per hour speed limits, but some were originally designed in ways that promote higher speeds. The City is working to redesign many of these streets so that it feels natural and easy to drive at safer speeds.

Homelessness Initiatives and Efforts

The City of Alameda and its community partners are committed to addressing homelessness in our island city. The City

coordinates the CARES team whose members provide outreach and programs to support unhoused individuals and families in Alameda.

Climate Action and Environmental Sustainability in Alameda

Through adoption of its award-winning Climate Action and Resiliency Plan in 2019, Alameda has set an ambitious goal of reducing emissions by 50% below 2005 levels by 2030 and becoming carbon neutral as soon as possible.

The CARP charts a course to achieve this goal through equitable improvements to transportation, buildings, energy use, and waste management.

Creating a Smart City

The City of Alameda has initiated a Smart City Master Plan to provide a roadmap for improving the City’s Smart City infrastructure to better serve the City’s growing technology needs. The Plan will assist the City in using new technologies to improve community member’s lives and to achieve the City’s General Plan goals.

Alameda’s General Plan

The 2040 Alameda General Plan is a statement of community goals, objectives, policies, and actions to guide our island community in the challenges facing us today and in the future. Thanks to the work of over 1,700 community members and over 25 community organizations, the Alameda General Plan 2040 was adopted by the City Council on November 30, 2021.


On behalf of the City of Alameda, I’m delighted to welcome you to our island city in San Francisco Bay. Three ferry terminals offer fast service to San Francisco, South San Francisco, and Oakland, and the Bay Area’s most scenic, stress-free commute. We’re also just 10 minutes from Oakland International Airport.

Alameda is home to 80,000 residents, but maintains a small town feel. We value innovation and entrepreneurship, as demonstrated by Alameda Point where a former naval air station is being transformed into a hub of life sciences companies; clean, green, and high tech businesses; food and beverage producers; small manufacturers; makers, artists, and retail.

Alameda is a great place to locate and grow your business. We’ve got two downtown districts with distinctive shops and award-winning restaurants; family-friendly neighborhoods; high ranking schools; and plenty of amenities that include: 22 parks as well as 51 miles of bikeways, beautiful beaches, and waterfront access.

City staff prides itself on offering “concierge service” that makes bringing your business to Alameda an absolute pleasure. Please contact our Economic Development Department at 510-747-6890 so we can help you discover all that Alameda has to offer!

Bus, Shuttles & BART

Alameda is served by AC Transit (including express bus service to and from San Francisco) and BART at several nearby stations in Oakland (12th Street, Fruitvale and Lake Merritt).

In addition to these, we have a few free shuttles:

• The Alameda Loop Shuttle (operated by the City) runs on Tuesdays, Wednesdays, and Thursdays from 8:30 AM to 4:00 PM, with a different route each day.

• The Harbor Bay Business Park Shuttle to BART (operated by the Harbor Bay Business Park Association) connects the Business Park to the Coliseum BART Station.

• The Alameda Landing Express (operated by Alameda Landing) runs on weekdays between Target and 12th Street BART in Downtown Oakland.


Biking is a popular form of transportation on our island. Here are a few resources:

Employee Program

For any employee working in Alameda County, the Guaranteed Ride Home (GRH) program will pay for a free ride home for those who use transit, walking, bicycling, carpooling or vanpooling to get to work, in the event of unexpected circumstances such as illness, family crisis or unscheduled overtime.

Navigating the Estuary Bridges

There are six drawbridges over the Oakland-Alameda Estuary. The Alameda County Public Works Agency operates and maintains them. Four of the bridges are for vehicle traffic, one bridge is for trains, and one bridge is exclusively for bicycles and pedestrians.

Electric Vehicle Support

Alameda is committed to a cleaner, zerogreenhouse gas emission future. Alameda Municipal Power (AMP), the city-owned electric utility, has programs to encourage and incentivize electric vehicle use. The City is making it easier for residents and businesses to install EV chargers.


General Plan 2040


The City of Alameda is dedicated to promoting equity, environmental justice, and a high quality of life for everyone. We do this regardless of income, race, gender, sexual orientation, cultural background, or ability. The City engages these populations in all decision making, recognizing and changing local policies, programs, ordinances, and practices that serve to perpetuate injustices suffered by under served and underrepresented populations.


Alameda’s commitment to environmental resilience springs from a desire to protect the environment, respond to the climate crisis, and meet regional responsibilities. As an island, Alameda is vulnerable to the impacts of climate change, including rising sea and groundwater levels, more severe droughts, wildfire smoke, and other impacts of climate change. General Plan 2040 policies support global, regional, and local efforts to reduce greenhouse gas emissions locally and regionally and prepare for climate change through smart growth development policies, strategic infrastructure improvements, and expanding and protecting natural conservation areas, marshes, and wetlands.

Preservation of Neighborhood Character

Alameda is known for its diverse neighborhoods, main streets, historic architectural styles, extensive tree canopy, walkability and livability, and cultural diversity. The island’s character is further defined by its wide range of architecture and building types, including multifamily buildings, single family buildings, and mixed-use buildings. These diverse physical and social characteristics contribute to the high quality of life in Alameda and provide the framework for shaping development, conserving resources, and maintaining a thriving economy. General Plan 2040 policies manage growth to address current challenges

and responsibilities and support the characteristics that make Alameda a special place to live, work, learn, and recreate.


Living on an island in the center of a major metropolitan area contributes to the high quality of life in Alameda, while creating unique challenges and opportunities for mobility. General Plan 2040 policies support and enhance mobility and accessibility by increasing transportation choices and options for Alameda residents, businesses, and visitors, eliminating severe injuries and fatalities on Alameda streets, and making the shoreline more accessible. I 39
Alameda’s General Plan 2040 is focused around four themes: ✔ Equity ✔ Resilience ✔ Preservation of neighborhood character ✔ Accessibility
