Brio Engineering has provided all civil engineering services for the recently completed, $85 million redevelopment of this 50 year old open air shopping center, formerly known as South Shore Center. The property has been owned since 1979 by Portland-based Harsch investment properties and was sold to Atlanta-based Jamestown Properties in early 2011.
The redevelopment began in 2001 with the addition of Trader Joe’s and completed in 2010 with the addition of Ross Dress For Less in what was the former Safeway building. Alameda Towne Centre has 657,000 square feet of retail, and restaurant space on a 47 acre site. The center is situated right off the San Francisco Bay and features outdoor shopping and plazas. The redevelopment presented several grading and infrastructure challenges converting covered retail space to open air plazas while keeping existing tenants active.
