SAN PEDRO, CA-The Port of Los Angeles has unveiled details of its proposed its San Pedro Waterfront Project, a plan that has been years in the making that will feature new cruise ship facilities, recreational uses and other development, including up to 375,000 square feet of commercial space. The port, which will gather public comment on the draft EIR for the project over the next month, says that the 400-acre project would require seven years to complete. A significant amount of that time would be required for infrastructure and public access improvements.

One of the chief goals of the San Pedro Waterfront Project is to connect the new waterfront facilities with the City of San Pedro with “visitor-serving commercial opportunities in and around the port,” according to a Port of L.A. description of the project. To that end, the plan calls for revitalizing Ports O’ Call Village, a 150,000-square-foot retail and tourism area that would be expanded by 375,000 square feet, including a 75,000-square-foot conference center. The port intends to partner with a master developer to create a design for the Ports O’ Call redevelopment.

Port planners envision that along with the 375,000 square feet of commercial development, the project will require expanded Pacific Electric Red Car line service to Cabrillo Beach and other points along the waterfront.
