Webster Street and West Alameda are waking to a new identity. After the closure of the Naval Air Station in 1997, base land has begun integration into the city as Alameda Point. Webster Street is in the midst of a major renaissance, with facelifts for historically significant buildings like the Neptune Hotel and several new businesses in brand new buildings. The recently completed streetscape project provides appealing amenities such as historic lighting, transit plazas, benches and trees, and the West End has been discovered by lots of new businesses – with a resulting increase in foot traffic.

Webster Street is known for its wide array of international restaurants and specialty shops serving Alameda and the East Bay. A farmers’ market offers fresh local produce every Tuesday and Saturday morning. Special events like the summer Concerts at the Cove, Webster Wine Walk, the Fourth of July parade, the Webster Street Jam, Halloween on Webster Street and Santa Visits Webster Street bring thousands to appreciate all West Alameda has to offer.

A new community of homes at Bayport, around the corner from Webster Street, has attracted new families, and Catellus is beginning to implement plans for Alameda Landing, a 97-acre mixed-use waterfront development on reclaimed Navy land along the estuary. At Alameda Point, residents have moved into existing housing, and businesses continue to locate in military buildings, including Auctions by the Bay, a monthly estate and antique auctions in a beautifully upgraded Art Deco movie palace, Bladium, a huge sports and fitness center located in one of the hangars, and the USS Hornet aircraft carrier, now offering a museum and an exciting event venue. Ferries depart regularly from the Ferry Terminal near Alameda Point, taking passengers to and from San Francisco and Oakland. West Alameda even has its own wineries – including the award-winning Rosenblum Cellars.
