First Look at Drafts of Port Redevelopment

The Port of Los Angeles is preparing to release a draft report on waterfront redevelopment from the Vincent Thomas Bridge to Cabrillo Beach.

The report will assess six options for the San Pedro waterfront project, a multi-phase revitalization to enhance recreational and commercial activity along the waterfront.

The study, formally known as a draft environmental impact statement/environmental impact report (EIS/EIR), will be released in early July for public comment.

Port officials have been presenting the plans to neighborhood councils and other civic organizations.

Highlights include proposals to create a pedestrian promenade, build water cuts along the Main Channel, add as many as three cruise ship terminals, develop a conference center at Ports O Call Village, realign streets, de-industrialize some areas extend the Red Car routes to Cabrillo Beach.

Additional details about the proposed project can be found in these port documents (posted to our sister site).
