There are now six bidders looking to redevelop Harbor Island, which is directly across from San Diego’s Lindbergh Field airport.
The San Diego Unified Port District will select and approve a plan during the second week of January. The submitted proposals include a $2-billion aquarium, and a dinner theater that concentrates on local history.
Tripp Development has very big plans for the 50-acre site. Rick Tripp, principal for the company, said he would like to build a 700,000-square-foot aquarium, as well as three hotels and a vertical crop system that would grow plant life and total two million square feet.
Another notable bidder is local firm OliverMcMillan.
