The Port of San Diego invites the public to attend the regularly-scheduled meeting of the Board of Port Commissioners on Tuesday, November 6, 2018 to learn about the latest revisions proposed as part of the planned redevelopment of the Central Embarcadero. 1HWY1, the selected developer, has refined its Seaport San Diego project and will be presenting the proposed changes to the Board for preliminary feedback before it submits its project description to the Port at the end of the year.
Details of the upcoming public Board meeting:
- Tuesday, Nov. 6, 2018. The meeting begins at 1 p.m. in the Port of San Diego Administration Building, 3165 Pacific Highway, San Diego, 92101.
As part of the regularly-scheduled meeting, the Board will hear a presentation from and provide preliminary feedback to 1HWY1 regarding the latest proposed changes. The Board will not be approving the design or project description at this time. The Board meeting will include opportunity for public comment and feedback on this project. The staff report for this agenda item can be found here. The meeting agenda can be found here.
The Central Embarcadero is a prime site of approximately 70 acres of land and water situated between downtown San Diego and the San Diego Bayfront. This highly visible and desirable area includes Seaport Village, Santa Monica Seafood (formerly Chesapeake Fish), and surrounding areas between the Hyatt and the USS Midway Museum. The Headquarters and The Fish Market Restaurant are within the boundary but excluded from the proposal process because there are long-term leases on those properties. Further details about the project can be found here.
The Board of Port Commissioners selected 1HWY1 to redevelop the 70-acre Central Embarcadero site in late 2016 as part of a competitive public solicitation process. Due to the size of the redevelopment and uniqueness of some of the proposed programmatic components, design, planning, and permitting will likely take several years.
The Port is committed to public input. The public can provide input at meetings of the Board of Port Commissioners, which are publicly noticed on the Port of San Diego website.
