Seaport Village makeover an idea whose time has come

Carlsbad-based Terramar Retail Centers will lose its lease to Seaport Village’s dozens of shops and restaurants in September 2018, so this is an excellent opportunity to remake Seaport Village into something San Diegans can be proud of — and visit.

There is a lot to enjoy about the current setup, starting with its duck ponds and green space framed by kites and buskers. Now imagine it with fewer T-shirts and postcards for tourists, more dining options, more life. Of note, Monday’s Seaport Village discussion took place the same day San Diegans celebrated the opening of Liberty Public Market in Liberty Station, a food hall with more than two dozen vendors that shows how inviting public space and commerce can be.

Interstate 5 widening to begin late this summer
Corridor plan takes ‘holistic’ approach to transportation improvements

A massive plan to widen Interstate 5 in northern San Diego County is set to kick off late this summer and could transform one of the most heavily traveled freeways in the state.

The work is part of the $6.5 billion North Coast Corridor Program — led by the California Department of Transportation and the San Diego Association of Governments — that will ultimately stretch 27 miles from La Jolla to Oceanside. The plan includes an ambitious collection of transportation, environmental, and coastal access projects that will take shape over the next 30 years.

Key among them is adding four express lanes to I-5.

The $700 million first phase of the corridor project will begin in the next several months with freeway work in Encinitas, where an eight-lane bridge that crosses the San Elijo Lagoon will slowly be replaced with a larger, wider structure. Work will also begin on another freeway bridge that crosses the Batiquitos Lagoon in Carlsbad.

Relief for San Ysidro's pedestrian crossers
U.S. and Mexico agree to July 15 opening of PedWest lanes

Border crossers walking into San Ysidro from Tijuana can expect some relief this summer with the opening of the new PedWest entrance.

U.S. and Mexican federal officials on Thursday ended weeks of uncertainty over the start date for the new inspection lanes, announcing that they will begin processing pedestrian crossers on July 15.

The new entrance was designed with 12 lanes: 10 northbound lanes and two reversible southbound lanes that can be used for northbound traffic at peak demand times.

Part of the $741 million reconfiguration of the San Ysidro Port of Entry, the entrance is a critical piece of infrastructure for some 25,000 pedestrians who cross from Tijuana to San Diego each day. At peak crossing periods, waits can stretch for two or three hours at the existing outdated facility located east of the car lanes.

MTS Cheers Deal to Rebuild Desert Line Railway for Tijuana Link

The Metropolitan Transit System Board of Directors on Thursday approved a binational agreement that will clear the way for rebuilding a mostly unused 70-mile stretch of railway in the southeastern San Diego County desert.

When the project between Campo and Imperial County is completed, the Desert Line will connect about 1,500 factories in and near Tijuana — known as maquiladoras — to U.S. rail facilities. Right now, movement of products into this country is done by trucks.

Jerry Sanders of the San Diego Regional Chamber of Commerce said there is $2.1 million in daily trade between San Diego and Tijuana, and infrastructure is critical to the supply chain.

“The rehabilitation of the cross-border railroad provides a much-needed alternative for moving goods through one of the most vibrant centers of commerce in the world,” he said. “The Desert Line will provide a vital route that takes trucks off our freeways and increases shipping capacity that gets goods to marketplaces far more efficiently.”

Sanders said the increased shipping capacity will help business officials attract more companies and investment to the region.

The rail line starts in Tijuana, runs east to Tecate, crosses the border near Campo and continues east to Plaster City in Imperial County. Baja California Railroad plans to spend $60-70 million to repair 57 bridges and 17 tunnels beginning this summer, according to the MTS.

A transportation hub will also be built in Imperial County.

San Diego County Supervisor Ron Roberts said 6,200 trucks cross into the U.S. daily through the border crossings at San Ysidro, Otay Mesa and Tecate, and the wait time can last up to two hours.

Reducing the number of trucks will ease wait times and reduce air pollution, Roberts said.

San Diego gets new stem cell center
CIRM votes $15 million to Quintiles to advance clinical trials

Moving full throttle to get stem cell treatments to patients, the California Institute for Regenerative Medicine on Wednesday approved a new center to take research from the lab to clinical trials.

To be located in San Diego, the $15 million "accelerating center" will be run by Quintiles Transnational, one of the largest companies dedicated to running clinical trials.

About 300 CIRM-funded programs are progressing through various stages of research and development. These include therapies for major and costly diseases such as diabetes, Alzheimer's and HIV. If only a fraction of these therapies reach the market, the health and financial implications would be huge.

Despite this activity in California and worldwide, very few of these experimental treatments have actually been approved. California, with its large network of stem cell-focused research and biotech companies, is regarded as a world leader in this effort.

18,000-seat arena proposed for Seaport Village

When live-entertainment powerhouse AEG opened the 19,000-capacity Staples Center in 1999 as the largest indoor concert venue and sports arena in Los Angeles, it became a catalyst in the revitalization of the city’s downtown.

Now, AEG hopes to build a similar state-of-the-art sports and entertainment arena at the site of what is now Seaport Village in downtown San Diego. Like the $375 million Staples Center, the new 18,000-seat arena here could be privately financed.

“We consider San Diego one of the most unique opportunities available in the world today,” said AEG Facilities President Bob Newman. “This presents the opportunity to think about what the next generation for an arena in San Diego might be.”

The port’s staff is scheduled to present an analysis of the proposals to the port district board next week. After a final choice is made and approved by the California Coastal Commission, construction could begin as soon as 2019.

In addition to the arena, the proposed development would include three hotels with a combined 1,700 rooms, 325,000 square feet of retail and restaurant space, 125,000 square feet of office space, a 10,000-square-foot Scripps Institution of Oceanography learning center and a 2,000-square-foot area for educational and outreach activities by the San Diego Symphony.

Theoretically, the new arena here also could be home to a professional basketball or hockey team. AEG was co-developer, with MGM Resorts International, of the 20,000-capacity T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas, which opened at a cost of $375 million in April. Last week, the National Hockey League announced an expansion team will begin playing there this year.

Chargers' stadium hopes take punch to gut
California Supreme Court ruling affirms two-thirds requirement for now

The state's high court on Wednesday temporarily blocked a lower court ruling that said tax increases like the Chargers’ downtown stadium initiative require approval from a simple majority instead of two-thirds of voters. The court said it will review the ruling at a time to be determined.

Last week, San Diego Mayor Kevin Faulconer, philanthropist Irwin Jacobs and representatives from the park’s many institutions stood together to announce the revival of a plan to remove vehicle traffic from the heart of the park and recirculate cars along a new bypass road to a new, 800-spot underground parking garage.

There remain major details to work out, starting with cost. The 2012 plan was estimated to cost $45 million and be financed via $31 million of private donations and $14 million in bonds that would fund the parking garage construction, but Faulconer says those figures will be revised in coming weeks. The bonds would still be paid off by charging for parking in the new garage, but that figure hasn’t been finalized, either; in 2012, that fee was pegged at $5 per visit. Last week, Faulconer told an editorial writer the amount of that fee was under review, too. In response to a question, he also didn’t rule out eliminating the fee once the bonds are paid off.
