The seven-member Port of San Diego Board of Port Commissioners is set to meet at 1 p.m. today to hear public feedback on 1HWY1’s Seaport San Diego project being considered for the redevelopment of the Central Embarcadero, prime San Diego Bay waterfront real estate that encompasses Seaport Village and surrounding spots between the Manchester Grand Hyatt and USS Midway.

Port staff are expected to ask the board at the meeting to commence the environmental review required by the California Environmental Quality Act.

Since being selected by the port in 2016, the 1HWY1 development team has been honing its proposal, which is a mixed-use development program consisting of over 70% of “public realm space with parks, open spaces and plazas, piers, walkways, beaches, nature trails, shared streets, and public rooftop,” as well as food, retail, hotels, an event center, commercial fishing facilities and a “‘Blue Tech Innovation Center’ block made up of an aquarium, blue tech office space, and an observation tower,” according to the port.

The meeting takes place at 1 p.m. today, Nov. 8, in the boardroom at the Port Administration Building, 3165 Pacific Highway in San Diego. For more on the meeting of POSD projects, visit https://portofsandiego.legistar.com/Calendar.aspx or portofsandiego.org/centralembarcadero, respectively.
