The Port of San Diego has issued a request for proposals for the redevelopment of the Shelter Island Drive entrance corridor, located at Shelter Island Drive and Anchorage Lane in San Diego.
In the request, issued May 23, the Port describes the project as two buildings to house local marine businesses, and the demolition of existing buildings to allow for a public promenade along the shoreline and views of the Shelter Island Yacht Basin.
It also called for improved public amenities, including park enhancement, a public shoreline walkway, shoreline protection, adequate parking and a dinghy dock that must be incorporated into the project and maintained by the proposer.
The consolidated marine business facilities are planned to include a 24,000-square-foot building on Anchorage Lane and a 6,000-square-foot building on Shelter Island Drive. The site includes approximately 86,000 square feet of land and 79,000 square feet of water. An information exchange is scheduled for next month to respond to any questions from potential developers. Proposals on the project are scheduled to be submitted by mid-August.
