Port of Redwood City Seeks Concepts for Waterfront Project

The Port of Redwood City is looking for those interested in partnering with the port in presenting a concept to develop “a unique shoreline attraction that will reimagine the Redwood City waterfront with a visitor-serving destination.”

The project site encompasses 7.6 acres of land bordered by a municipal marina, Redwood Creek, Beeger Road and Seaport Boulevard, with an additional 5.8 acres that could be developed in the future. The marina could be part of the concept.

“Zoned as General Industrial, proposals should have a public access and community benefit focus with destination-type uses like restaurants, retail shops, creative/contemplative spaces or other activating recreational uses that have a direct nexus to the site’s proximity to the water,” according to the port.

If selected, the developer’s concept must accommodate the Sequoia Yacht Club and follow the City of Redwood City’s General Plan.

There’s interest in a concept that serves the community, with eateries, hotels and visitor attractions. The port has stated that it’s interested in seeing sustainability elements, including electric vehicle charging stations, as well as a way to incorporate the port’s antique train in the design concept.

Concepts may be submitted until 5 p.m. on June 25. For more, visit https://www.redwoodcityport.com/rfpspublicnotices.
