*That huge movie studio and shopping center complex planned by the Wayans brothers is now dead in the water due to conflicts with the nearby port of Oakland.See Also:
Wayans business partner Britten Shuford said the development destined for the Oakland Army base ran out of gas when the brothers failed to get a commitment from the city to preserve the site's San Francisco Bay views, reports the Associated Press.
The port of Oakland plans to stack storage containers and build a dividing wall that would block views of the bay.
Now that the Wayans brothers have dropped their bid over the 100-acre parcel, Oakland business officials say the path is now clear for other proposals on developing the base, which closed in 1999.
Oakland Mayor Ron Dellums has released a list of 13 other developers interested in building on the site.
