The Port of San Diego will host a public outreach meeting on a hotel development planned for the south side of Lane Field, located at the corner of North Harbor Drive and West Broadway in San Diego. The meeting will be held at 6 p.m. on Thursday, February 19, 2015 in the Training Room of the Port's Administration Building, 3165 Pacific Highway, San Diego [map].
Lane Field is located at 900 West Broadway in the North Embarcadero area of San Diego. The site is bound by West Broadway to the south, Harbor Drive to the west, and Pacific Highway to the east. The site has been a surface parking lot for cruise and general public parking since the 1960's and was formerly a baseball stadium known as "Lane Field" and the home of the Pacific Coast League Padres from 1936 to 1957.
A developer, LPP Lane Field, LLC, comprised of Portman Holdings, Phelps Development (a subsidiary of Hensel Phelps Construction Company), and Lankford & Associates, is working with the Port to develop the majority of the site into a 400-room, dual-branded hotel in a single building on the northern portion of the site fronting Pacific Highway and an approximately 2-acre public park on the western portion fronting Harbor Drive.
Construction of the Lane Field North Hotel Project began in May 2014. The project is expected to be completed in mid-2016.
The developers also built Lane Field Park, which opened on March 16, 2015.
The developers will also be building another hotel on the Lane Field South site. Construction on this project is anticipated to begin sometime in 2016.
The next installation will be seamlessly integrated into the Lane Field North hotel project with structural art walls that will wrap around an above-ground parking garage.
The Board of Port Commissioners approved the artwork, titled "Ripples," on October 14, 2014.
Construction of a new hotel and public park on the Lane Field site kicked off with a groundbreaking event held Thursday, May 8, 2014.
The event, which included a shovel ceremony, took place at the Lane Field site, which overlooks the waterfront at the corner of West Broadway and North Harbor Drive in San Diego.
Speakers at the event included San Diego City Council President Todd Gloria, Port of San Diego Chairman Bob Nelson, John Portman IV of Portman Holdings, Rob Lankford of Lankford & Associates, and Tye Turman of Marriott International.
A conceptual design for the Lane Field North Hotel project has been approved by the Board of Port Commissioners.
The design by LPP Lane Field, LLC, calls for a 400-room dual-branded hotel in a single tower at Broadway and Pacific Highway, where the Pacific Coast Padres ballpark was once located.
The approximately $115 million Lane Field development would include a 250-room hotel brand, similar to a Hilton Garden Inn and an extended-stay 150-room hotel brand, similar to a Homewood Suites.
