Preliminary South Shore Center Neighborhood Plan
As the owner and operator of South Shore Center, Jamestown has a long-term vision to revitalize the Center as a dynamic mixed-use community that will foster greater connectivity to the waterfront and surrounding neighborhoods. This includes adding up to 1,215 residential units across multiple phases to meet the area’s growing housing needs and reimagining existing retail to better serve the community.
A long-term neighborhood vision
South Shore Center today comprises approximately 600,000 SF of retail space, across roughly 46 acres.
The Plan proposes to amend an existing Development Plan, to consolidate existing retail and introduce multi-family residential.
Initial redevelopment would focus on underutilized outer parcels, while retail is re-concentrated in the core center.
The proposed Amendment will require a full Environmental Impact Report (EIR), including review of matters relating to air quality, greenhouse gas emissions and energy, biological resources, cultural resources, geotechnical studies and hazardous materials, land use, noise, and traffic.
Plan By Phase
Throughout the planning process there will be many opportunities for the community to learn more and provide feedback.
In addition to the following, as new information becomes available through the EIR process, we plan to host additional events to provide opportunity for questions and feedback, you can find more information about upcoming events here.
A focus of the planning process has been to foster connectivity between South Shore Center and the surrounding neighborhoods: to create a place that fits in its community, as well as its region.
Major ingress, egress, and internal circulation at the site are proposed to remain unchanged. Jamestown will work to ensure the project is responsive to the goals of our community, the City of Alameda and the Bay Area with respect to transit and traffic.
Jamestown has a demonstrated commitment to investing in projects that promote multimodal transportation, including partnering with the City of Atlanta to improve access to the BeltLine and offers shuttle service to public transit. Similarly, Jamestown participated in the development of New York’s High Line, adjacent to Chelsea Market.
