Shape & Develop San Diego’s World-Class Waterfront

Feb 01, 2016


SAN DIEGO, CA, USA - An ideal location in the heart of San Diego presents a unique opportunity to develop a 70-acre site into an internationally-recognized waterfront destination. The Port of San Diego, holder of the World Trade Center San Diego License, is issuing a Request for Proposals for development of this prime site available in one of the nation’s top metropolitan real estate markets.

Lifestyle, commerce and nature come together in this site consisting of approximately 40 acres of land and 30 acres of water. The prominent location boasts panoramic views of San Diego – the eighth largest city in the U.S. with a 2.7 million metro area population.

This one-of-a-kind opportunity to shape and develop San Diego’s world-class waterfront could include a World Trade Center within its footprint. Consistent with the Port’s vision for the future, these programmatic components have been identified as potentially desirable and should be considered as part of a redevelopment proposal:

  • Waterfront Arts & Entertainment District
  • Significant architectural elements/features
  • Hotel
  • Retail/restaurant
  • Multi-purpose public space
  • Water-oriented facilities
  • Commercial fishing operations
  • Parking and mobility improvements
