Following a competitive public process, the Board of Port Commissioners has selected San Diego-based restaurant developer and operator The Brigantine, Inc. to conduct further negotiations for redeveloping an important restaurant site on San Diego’s North Embarcadero at a regular meeting on November 17, 2015.
The California Division of Boating and Waterways has awarded the Port of San Diego a $6.1 million grant from the Harbors and Watercraft Revolving Fund for the Shelter Island Boat Launch Facility Improvements Project. The award was announced at the regular meeting of the Boating and Waterways Commission, which was held at the Port’s Administration Building on November 18, 2015.
The grant will help fund the estimated $9.5 million needed for the project. The project entails improving the launch ramp’s basin by enlarging the maneuvering area, replacing the worn-out launch ramp, increasing the lengths of the boarding floats, providing a concrete drop-off area for kayaks, and bringing the restroom to current ADA (Americans with Disability Act) standards.
Port of San Diego President & CEO Randa Coniglio was recognized with a Women Who Mean Business Award at the 22nd annual awards ceremony hosted by the San Diego Business Journal on Wednesday, November 18.

“Randa embodies the ideal woman who means business: she is smart, shrewd, builds strong lasting relationships, and treats all she meets with respect and courtesy,” said Board of Port Commissioners Chairman Dan Malcolm. “She believes the Port of San Diego has vast opportunities to expand upon its success as a regional economic engine by seizing opportunities, working collaboratively with all stakeholders, and instilling her enthusiasm in others.”
