Huge Redondo Waterfront Upgrade: Boutique Hotel, Theater

New, 12 comments

The listening sessions on the Redondo Beach waterfront regeneration are over, and developer CenterCal is ready to start talking. This past weekend, CenterCal revealed the initial plans for their vision of the revamped pier and waterfront area. The concept was designed to bring more locals down to the pier, refurbish buildings, and plan for rising water levels, says the Daily Breeze. While the plans released are still just conceptual, CenterCal CEO Fred Bruning says the eventual designs will be "open, inviting and green," and minimally ocean-view-blocking. The latest plans for the redevelopment include:

-- A market hall
-- Local shops and restaurants
-- Water features
-- Boutique hotel with beach access
-- 600 to 800 seat theater for movies and live performances
-- Renovated Seaside Lagoon, a heated saltwater pool next to the ocean, which would keep it open year-round
-- Better bike and pedestrian access to the waterfront

A representative of a group called Residents for Appropriate Development sounded cautiously supportive of the project--Nadine Meiser said she liked the family-friendly plans, but that she and fellow RAD members were concerned that their ocean views be protected, and want to see a 3D model to check sight lines before backing the project. The Redondo Beach City Council will vote on the preliminary concept next month.
