The Port of Los Angeles (Long Beach-San Pedro, California) is inviting comments on a draft RFP (Request for Proposals) for the future development of a brand-new Outer Harbor Cruise Terminal and redevelopment of the World Cruise Center on the LA Waterfront.
Port of Los Angeles Executive Director Gene Seroka said the cruise development initiative was critical to their business, their community, and the LA Waterfront, and they wanted to make sure it was done right.
The existing Los Angeles World Cruise Center, called the Inner Harbor Cruise Terminal, is also to be redeveloped under the RFP scope. Situated at Berths 87-93, it consists of 22 acres, a baggage handling structure, 2 existing cruise berths, and 2 existing terminal buildings.
Michael Galvin, Director of Waterfront & Commercial Real Estate at the Port of LA said that issuing a draft RFP for input allowed them to leverage the expertise/creativity of prospective proposers and get important feedback from the local community, public, and businesses.
The deadline to submit comments is Friday, March 3rd, at 3:00 p.m. Pacific.
Set against the backdrop of the Port, the LA Waterfront consists of 400+ acres and 8 miles of prime waterfront property, connecting visitors/local harbor communities to the waterfront with commercial and recreational attractions.
