RESHAP (Rebuilding the Existing Supportive Housing at Alameda Point) is the redevelopment
of 10 acres of the former navy base in the City of Alameda. DBA is partnered with MidPen
Housing and three local Alameda non-profts—Alameda Point Collaborative, Building Futures,
and Operation Dignity—to develop create a cohesive community providing 267 stable new
homes with enhanced services for the residents while also re-energizing Alameda’s Main Street
Together with MidPen, DBA created and implemented a highly collaborative resident engagement
process that informed the City’s future specifc plan for the neighborhood and a proposed site
plan with the goals of modernization, community-supporting open spaces, enhanced supportive
services, and increased housing capacity. Engagement opportunities included: monthly meetings
with residents, focus groups with development partners, community-wide design input meetings,
and one-on-one interview opportunities.
The RESHAP Alameda Plan was unanimously approved by the Alameda Planning Commission in
September 2017 and the housing is currently in design.
