I toured these a few weeks ago and they are nice, of course some will have better views then others. I call them vertical homes with all being 3 stories with lofts, bedrooms or bonus rooms on the top floor. The area is still commercial/industrial but there has been talk of change recently. The city of Alameda has several maintenance facilities and an animal shelter near there but I heard they may be consolidated somewhere else and sell the property?

Warmington's new development has 2 models to choose from. They have 3 levels in each plan and are layed out very differently. They build a very nice home and stand behind their product. This particular development is right next to the water. If you choose a plan with a water view it will be in the higher price range. The garages are in the back through an alley. Be sure to have your Realtor take you in on your first visit. Your Realtor can be sure that the important questions that you may have are answered. Ruth Masonek

I am a preferred real estate partner for Warmington and if you're interested they are having a preview later this month but we will have to RSVP to the event. Prices are anticipated to start in the 600,000's.

As a former Sales Manager for developers Ponderosa, AF Evans and Greenbriar. Go to Warmingtons website and sign up for email alerts about the project. They will contact you directly regarding the process for purchasing homes.
If you are truly interested then be prepared to follow the procedures that they set forth e.g. pre-qual with their preferred lenders, show up on certain dates to remain on the preferred/pre release 1st phase list, enter into a purchase agreement without models (purchase off floor plans), etc.
If you have an agent or want to be represented you will need to include your agent in all activities. If you go to the sales office on the first visit without your agent, they will not be paid. I literally, used to tell people to call their agent on the front steps and have them get there asap. It sounds a little rude but since I worked for the seller I could not deviate from the sellers policy.. I could be liable and fired since I am going against their policies and they would be monetarily damaged/hurt.
Also, be prepared to enter into a dual agency. There are no exceptions.

If you have any additional questions or would like to know more about the inner workings of buying new homes feel free to email me.
