Located where Pacific Coast Highway meets the sea, Pacific Place includes a plaza with views of San Diego Bay described in PWD’s proposal as a “grand outdoor theater” and “a floating stage for movies, bands and interpretive programming.” A café in this plaza will offer ice cream, coffee and casual dining in adjacent seating areas.

Another stone-paved pedestrian street, this shopping and dining area links the Seaport Core to The Headquarters and Embarcadero Marina Park North. This path will be lined with retail shops, bars, restaurants and small businesses relocated from Seaport Village. The full proposal can be seen here.

This section includes a stone-paved pedestrian path “similar to Pike Place in the Pike Place Market,” the proposal states. This is the path pedestrians can take to various retails shops and fish markets and where buskers and holiday displays can be featured. The Market Street area would start at the terminus of Pacific Coast Highway and end on the Market Pier near fishing boats.
PWD’s plan for prime property along the bayfront includes a redesign of Embarcadero Marina Park North, expanding the park and using Pacific Coast Highway and Kettner Boulevard as major gateways to the San Diego Bay.
