A Catalyst Project in a Revitalizing Waterfront Neighborhood

Set in The Kennedy Tract, a newly revitalizing mixed-use waterfront neighborhood on the Alameda Estuary, Waterpark Lofts consists of 27 live-work units oriented around a central courtyard that opens toward the water. A waterfront boardwalk, marina docking and kayak landing facilities are included in the design of Waterpark Lofts, which is within easy walking distance of Alameda’s Park Street across a historic drawbridge, and is within a ten minute walk of the Fruitvale BART transit village. The project has served as a catalyst for numerous larger projects, whose completion implements the Oakland Estuary Plan’s Vision of a continuous waterfront, creating a vibrant new mixed use neighborhood.
