The San Diego Board of Port Commissioners adopted the 1HWY1 project Tuesday to redevelop Seaport Village.
1HWY1, submitted by Gafcon with a design team led by AVRP Skyport Studios, is a 70-acre, 2.2 million square-foot project that includes hotels, restaurants and shops surrounded by a public beach, aquarium, educational facility, Smithsonian Media attraction and a 480-foot observation tower.
“Seaport San Diego provides an amazing opportunity to link our city’s greatest assets,” Frank Wolden, Principal at AVRP Skyport Studios said. “As Seaport lives up to its ultimate goal, it will be 70 acres that knits together the Bay, the City, the air, Coronado Bridge, and the Midway Museum into incredible experiences.”
In March, the Board of Port Commissioners began hearing proposals for the project and in July selected six plans that stood out, including 1HWY1, and introduced them to the public for commentary. The board then announced that it would continue conversations exclusively with the developers of the 1HWY1 plan.
