Alameda, is an island located on the east side of the San Francisco Bay, is filled with charming historic buildings, hometown character, and a colorful history. It is a great place to establish and grow a business!
West Alameda is in the process of revitalization of entire district. In 1997, the Naval Air Station Alameda closed, which gave West Alameda the opportunity to focus and reconnect with the unique and eclectic community, along with opportunity to show case the vast businesses and historic buildings stretching from the Webster Tube gateway to the anchor of Crab Cove (the site of the historic Neptune Beach).
Today, the west side of Alameda is ripe with diverse businesses; from long time-established enterprises, which are expanding, to a fresh new crop of retail shops, restaurants, services, and other businesses. West Alameda is a hub of movement and enterprise, attracting locals and visitors from around the bay area and California.
