[GreenYes] Eco-Park Call for Tenants - Alameda County, CA
Apologies for Cross-Postings

SECOND CALL FOR TENANTS
ALAMEDA COUNTY ECO-INDUSTRIAL PARK
SEPTEMBER 20, 2001

The purpose of this Call for Tenants is to identify companies who may be 
interested in leasing or owning a building in a new and unique industrial 
development in the eastern San Francisco Bay Area.

The Alameda County Waste Management Authority and Recycling Board 
(Authority), working in conjunction with a Master Developer and the City of 
San Leandro, is seeking tenants for an Eco-Industrial Park. Please read on 
for more specific information.

SITE CHARACTERISTICS
The proposed location for this unique Park is a 21.27-acre site zoned for 
General Industrial uses. The Property is located on Davis Street in the 
City of San Leandro, California along Highway 880. The site has excellent 
access to transportation corridors, including the Port of Oakland, the 
Oakland International Airport, and rail access to the Property.

PROSPECTIVE TENANT CHARACTERISTICS
The Authority has a limited amount of time to identify appropriate tenants 
for this unique project. We are interested in communicating with companies 
with the following characteristics:
	Engaged in environmentally sound manufacturing/product development, 
preferably utilizing recovered materials
	Capable of moving or expanding the business while maintaining financial 
viability
	Currently operating under a sound business plan
	Interested in leasing or owning own building (build-to-suit opportunity 
available; no outdoor processing)
	Able to pay lease rates of approximately .60 - .65/square foot per month
	Capable of entering into an agreement to participate with the Master 
Developer by the end of the year 2001
	Willing to participate in a collaborative project of national 
significance which is expected to attract positive recognition and media 
attention.

WHAT IS AN ECO-INDUSTRIAL PARK?
The Eco-Industrial Park proposed for this Property is an industrial park 
housing a group of businesses who work together to enhance their 
environmental and economic performance. Eco-Industrial Park tenants will be 
the manufacturers and value-added processors who use recycled materials, 
such as paper, glass, and wood generated and purchased locally to produce 
new products. Other manufacturers of environmentally preferable products 
will also be considered if they offer opportunities for byproduct synergies 
with other tenants.

The Eco-Industrial Park is an important component of the Authority's 
efforts to reduce the amount of material landfilled in Alameda County. It 
is also an important focus of the City of San Leandro's and the Alameda 
County Economic Development Alliance for Business (EDAB)'s business 
attraction and expansion efforts.
Co-locating businesses that add value to materials currently going to 
landfills by re-manufacturing these materials into new products is vital to 
the Authority's market development efforts. Given the cost and lack of 
availability of land in the Bay Area and of doing business in an urbanized 
area, the chance to site a project close to supplies of recovered materials 
offers unique benefits in the form of reduced transportation costs and 
other business expenses, such as insurance, job training, and equipment.

UNIQUE ADVANTAGES OF THIS PROJECT
	Proximity to varied and vibrant markets and sources of feedstock, 
including one of the nation's largest transfer station/material 
recovery/reuse facilities, the Davis Street Recycling Park. This facility 
recovers wood, metal, cardboard, paper, glass, plastic containers, yard 
waste, food waste, and electronics. Concrete, soil, and other recyclables 
are sorted from construction and demolition waste. A reuse business for 
salvaged building materials and a tire recycling business also operate at 
the facility.
	Up to $3 million in infrastructure improvement funding available to 
support the development.
	Access to Authority Revolving Loan Fund for resource recovery-related 
businesses, Redevelopment Area participation, and other specialized funding 
available to assist tenant businesses that locate in the Park.
	Intensive media attention and public recognition expected for positive 
environmental and economic performance.

CONTACT INFORMATION
The Authority and its partners respectfully request that you contact us for 
more information as soon as possible. Preliminary negotiations with the 
Master Developer will ideally need to be underway by November 1, 2001.

Please contact Ms. Rory Bakke at the Alameda County Waste Management 
Authority at 510/614-1699 or via email at rbakke@stopwaste.org for:
	Additional information
	Questions
	A site tour
	Other help in determining if this opportunity is a suitable match for 
your business.
We welcome your response to this Call for Tenants and look forward to 
working with you to explore this innovative development opportunity.
