The City of Alameda is a 10.6 square mile island city located in San Francisco Bay. An island in the heart of the San Francisco Bay, Alameda has its own distinctive culture that blends tradition with the future. Alameda’s landscape is dotted with Victorian homes and tree-lined streets, offering safe and walkable neighborhoods. It is a family-friendly town, with an abundance of parks and award-winning schools that attract a highly educated workforce. The historic business districts are filled with vibrant restaurants and boutique shops, with frequent festivals and community events that bring people to Alameda from across the Bay and beyond.
On one end of the island, the Harbor Bay Business Park offers office, industrial and R&D space, with stunning panoramic views of the Bay. There is regular ferry service to and from San Francisco, and quick access to Highway 880 and the Oakland International Airport. On the west end of the island is Alameda Point, the former Naval Air Station. Decommissioned in the late 1990s, today this large area offers planned commercial development. Clean tech businesses are thriving in former airport hangers, and it is the epicenter of the emerging blue tech economy.
