Los Angeles Wants to Develop San Pedro Waterfront Into Bustling Tourist Neighborhood

The Los Angeles waterfront in San Pedro is very slowly being made over into a more neighborhoody place, with a big new public plaza already arrived and the $500-million AltaSea marine research center and redevelopment of the Ports O' Call Village shopping center both on the horizon. Now LA actually wants to make the area into a neighborhood—the city's Harbor Department and Economic Workforce and Development Department are commissioning a study to look into publicly owned sites nearby that might be good for development as hotels, resorts, and a range of housing both for sale (single-family houses, condos, townhouses) and for rent that would serve a mix of incomes from high to low, says Urbanize LA.

The feasibility study, as outlined in a memo to the LA City Council, will look into the "opportunities and
constraints" of developing specific properties in San Pedro, downtown San Pedro, and Wilmington, but will also look into the overall market for the area. The study is expected to take three months to complete. The following sites are being studied:
