The Port of San Diego is seeking redevelopment proposals to create an “iconic” new vision for the city’s aging Seaport Village. Remaking the 13.2-acre waterfront site into a destination for residents and tourists will be both ambitious and complex.
The Port views the Seaport Village site as having the potential to create an easily recognizable and uniquely San Diego identifier. Officials believe it’s an ideal location to showcase an iconic structure or architectural components – similar to the Space Needle in Seattle or Opera House in Sydney.
There are currently more than 50 shops and 17 restaurants in Seaport Village, many of which are uncertain about how redevelopment will impact them. Developers have until May 2 to submit proposals.
