Modernization, Job Creation, Recreation
San Diego Ports & Harbors Projects help enhance the 34 miles along San Diego Bay that span five cities. Expansion and modernization provide business opportunities and job creation for local residents while also supporting the enjoyment of life on the waterfront with new public parks, amenities, and the protection of natural coastal resources.
Tenth Avenue Marine Terminal Redevelopment: With plans to grow trade, create jobs and reduce air pollution, the modernization project is focused on increasing cargo capacity by 400 percent, allowing the terminal to handle up to 4.6 metric tons of cargo annually.
The upgraded terminal will specialize in three distinct cargo nodes within the existing footprint of the terminal and is focused on the current core specialties of: project, roll-on/roll-off, and break-bulk cargo such as military equipment, wind energy parts, shipbuilding steel, and vehicles; refrigerated containers for fresh produce such as bananas or other produce; and dry bulk cargo such as soda ash, aggregate and cement, used primarily in construction.
There will also be 7,200 square feet of new buildings to provide office space and restrooms, along with on-dock rail improvements. The incorporation of smart technology helps reduce pollution.
Chula Vista Bayfront Project: A transformation of the largest urban waterfront site in California is being handled by a partnership between The Port of San Diego and City of Chula Vista. Formerly the largely vacant and underutilized industrial area is now being developed to include seven residential towers with about 1,500 condominium units; a resort hotel and convention center; the Costa Vista RV park; a shoreline promenade with shopping and dining amenities; and 200 acres of parks, walking trails, and open space.
Other San Diego Ports & Harbors Projects in development include the San Diego Symphony Bayside Performance Park, a permanent outdoor music venue, and redevelopment efforts to Central Embarcadero, 70 acres of land and water situated between downtown San Diego and the San Diego Bayfront.
