The Board of Port Commissioners approved the design concept for a new hotel project to be constructed at Lane Field South, one of the most prominent and visible sites on downtown San Diego's waterfront. The approval was given at the May 12, 2015 Board of Port Commissioners meeting.
Located on the corner of West Broadway and North Harbor Drive in the North Embarcadero area of San Diego, the Lane Field South site is adjacent to the Lane Field North Hotel project, which is currently under construction. The area was once home to the Pacific Coast League Padres, who played on Lane Field from 1936-1957. In March 2015, the Port celebrated the grand opening of Lane Field Park, which is also located on the same site and pays homage to the area's baseball history.
