Seaport Village projects go to port board

Redevelopment of the 70-acre Seaport Village area on the downtown waterfront could involve as much as $1.5 billion in developer costs, 4.7 million square feet in new construction and upwards of $20 million in annual lease payments to the San Diego Unified Port District, a port staff reported concluded Friday.

Two proposals address just a portion of the site — one for an aquarium or a Ferris wheel and seafood mart . Four other bidders propose comprehensive plans hotels, much more retail space than Seaport Village currently offers, commercial office space geared to maritime and “blue-tech” businesses.

They also offer specialty uses, such as an 18,000-seat sports and concert arena; 2,500-seat performing arts center; 500-foot observation tower; 400-foot spinnaker-shaped gondola ride; and a pool outfitted with wave-making machinery.

Port officials hope to make a final decision at the end of the year and take steps toward getting construction under way by 2019.

Here are details about each bid based on the port staff analysis:

▪ Celebration Place: Manchester Financial Group proposes 1.1 million square feet of development over the entire site, including office and retail uses. Highlights include a 500-room boutique hotel, a 400-foot gondola ride in the shape of a sailboat spinnaker, 2,500-seat performing arts center and “Baywalk,” a fine-mesh walking surface extending north from the Embarcadero park. Development cost: $653 million; annual revenues, $203 million; estimated annual lease payment not provided.

▪ Embarcadero District: OliverMcMillan proposes 4.7 million square feet in the densest plan submitted. Highlights, besides office and retail, include a 18,000-seat arena operated by AEG that could serve both professional sports and concerts and other entertainment; 1,700 rooms in three hotels; and a Scripps Institution of Oceanography learning center on the park. Development cost: $1.5 billion; annual revenues, $324 million; estimated annual lease payment not provided.

▪ Ripley’s Aquarium of California: Jim Pattison Group proposes a 110,000-square-foot aquarium on 4.3 acres. Development cost: $129 million; annual revenues, $30 million; annual lease payment, $1 million. The company is asking for public financing to subsidize construction costs.

▪ SeaPort: McWhinney and DJM Capital Partners propose 1.7 million square feet over the entire site, including office and retail uses. Highlights include 1,000 rooms in three hotels; 30,000-square-foot performance and meeting space; a champion surfer Kelly Slater wave pool on Embarcadero Marina Park North and “dock and dine” facilities, which other teams also propose. Development cost: $711 million; annual revenues, $138 million; estimated annual lease payment, $10.4 million.

▪ Seaport San Diego: Protea Waterfront Development proposes more than 3 million square feet in office, hotel, retail, a University of San Diego charter school and an OdySea-run aquarium. Highlights include the nearly 500-foot-high “Spire” observation tower operated by Thrill Corp; 1,077 rooms in three hotels and hostels; a University of San Diego-sponsored charter school, a use the port’s attorney said may not be permitted on tidelands. Development cost: $1.2 billion; annual revenues, $287 million; annual lease payments at buildout, $22.5 million. The team is seeking public financing to underwrite public improvement costs on the site.

▪ Tuna Harbor Pavilion: Great Western Pacific proposes to develop only three acres of the Central Embarcadero, including a 110,000-square-foot “Tuna Harbor Pavilion” and a 200-foot Ferris whee. Development cost: $57 million; annual revenues, $8 million; estimated annual lease payment not estimated.

Chargers 'convadium' plan heading to ballot
San Diego city clerk says Chargers submitted enough valid signatures for November

The state Supreme Court’s decision last month to review a lower court ruling prompted City Attorney Jan Goldsmith to say the initiative would need approval from two-thirds of voters.

And the Chargers have said that’s the threshold they expect to face.

But this week, Goldsmith said there was some chance that approval by somewhere between a simple majority and two-thirds would leave the fate of the initiative in limbo until a Supreme Court decision whether to uphold or overturn the lower court ruling.

Hotel tax hike measure makes November ballot

The Citizens' Plan, a wide-ranging initiative that would raise San Diego's hotel tax to help promote tourism and build a satellite convention center, has qualified for the November ballot.

Voters will be faced with two competing choices for raising the room tax: a Chargers plan to boost the levy to 16.5 percent to finance a downtown stadium and convention complex and the Citizens’ Plan, which would increase the rate to 15.5 percent and allow for publicly funding an off-the-waterfront convention center but not a football field.

While the Citizens’ Plan would not help pay for a new stadium, it would ease the path to building one by removing some of the procedural delays and litigation risks of the environmental review process. It also calls for setting aside Qualcomm Stadium land for parks and university-related uses, such as an expansion for San Diego State, should the Chargers no longer play there.

Briggs has said that because his measure would raise taxes for the city’s general fund, it would only require a simple majority. Use of the money for specific purposes, he has said, is merely advisory and subject to City Council approval.

Seaport Village: Speed wins day

San Diego port commissioners shocked the development community this week when they swiftly narrowed the field of bidders to redevelop Seaport Village and its surrounding acreage.

In 6-1 vote Wednesday, the San Diego Unified Port District board decided to focus on Protea Waterfront Development’s proposal to convert 70 acres of prime waterfront property into a proposed $1.2 billion mix of hotels, shops and restaurants, a beach, aquarium and 480-foot observation tower called “The Spire.”

“To me, it’s a watershed moment for the port,” said Yehudi “Gaf” Gaffen, one of Protea’s principals. He said the port had previously nurtured a reputation of soliciting development proposals and then spending years trying to decide what to build and who should build it.

Lane Field North.

Work is well underway on a 17-story, dual-branded hotel and a 2-acre public park.

If all goes as planned, Lane Field North should be completed in 2016. Until then, we’ll be watching this key piece of the Downtown waterfront come together.

Comic-Con to fans: no offsite convention expansion

Comic-Con organizers are taking advantage of a huge, captive audience this week to take aim at plans that would expand the San Diego convention center in a separate facility off the waterfront.

While the Chargers aren’t mentioned by name, a message from Comic-Con board president John Rogers in the convention’s souvenir book reiterates its opposition to anything that would thwart a contiguous expansion of its longtime home. The future of the Con in San Diego could depend on it, Rogers implies in his statement.

“We have signed contracts to remain in San Diego through 2018,” Rogers writes in his president’s message. “We hope to stay much longer. But any decision on our future will take into account negotiations on a variety of fronts that will have a direct effect on our exhibitors, panel participants, and most important, you, the fans and attendees.”

With more than 135,000 attendees, the always sold-out Comic-Con International long ago outgrew the confines of the city’s waterfront convention center. It has made do by expanding programming into nearby hotels, the Horton Grand Theatre and the San Diego Central Library.

Only Comic-Con fills more San Diego hotel rooms than...

It should surprise no one to learn that San Diego’s annual Comic-Con fills the most hotel rooms every year. But do you know what events fill the second most rooms? Here’s a hint: It has to do with sports.

No, it’s not Chargers football or Padres baseball. It is youth soccer tournaments and other sporting events run by Surf Cup Sports. They bring tens of thousands of young athletes, their families, referees, college recruiters and more to this region every year.

All of that has caught the eyes of Major League Soccer, which is eyeing San Diego for a possible expansion team. Surf Cup Sports is an important part of that local soccer ecosystem. It’s also a homegrown success story.

San Diego Chargers getting stadium game-changer?

To try to “keep the drama down to a minimum,” San Diego City Attorney Jan Goldsmith is asking the state Supreme Court to expedite a ruling in a closely-watched case whose outcome could change the playing field for the San Diego Chargers as the team seeks to build a downtown football stadium.

The court case in question could be a game-changer for any California citizens’ initiative that creates new taxes for specific purposes because it might mean a simple majority vote instead of a two-thirds supermajority vote for approval. That lower threshold would sharply increase the chances the San Diego Chargers’ proposal to increase the hotel tax to 16.5 percent to pay for a joint convention center and stadium could succeed.
