WATERFRONT DEVELOPMENTS A 600ft/183m-long floating dock, built by Bellingham Marine, gives boaters first-time access to the waterfront in the Promenade and Town Square project, along with access to West Harbor when it opens in 2023. by Bellingham Marine, connects the waterside of the project. After breaking ground in January 2020, Bellingham acted as an on-site consultant during the dock installation. The dock, built between the maritime museum to the north and the cruise terminal to the south, gives recreational boaters first-time access to the waterfront. Measuring 600ft (183m) long and 15ft (4.5m) wide, the dock gives ample space for visiting boaters to enjoy the waterfront and access the West Harbor development once it is completed and open in 2023. The floating dock consists of three 200ft (61m) match-cast float sections, which are highly durable and designed for heavy wave environments such as the LA channel, which is frequently busy with cargo and cruise ships. The match-cast structure, which eliminates gaps between floats, is post-tensioned, allowing each dock section to act as one solid unit and thus provide added stability. The heavy-duty construction of the dock offers mooring for a variety of boats and, in addition to recreational cleats, large steel mooring bollards are fitted for large vessels. Funding for the project was provided through the port’s Public Access Investment Plan, which ties community infrastructure investments to a percentage of the port’s operating revenue. Since 2005, the port has invested more than 0 million in waterfront capital development, programming and maintenance, with an additional 0 million in port funding anticipated to be invested by 2025 under the plan. Progressing West Harbor In April 2022, the Port of Los Angeles released an Initial Study/Notice of Preparation (IS/NOP) – the first step in the environmental review process – for the West Harbor Modification Project. Investment in the project also took a major stride forward when private firm Osprey Investors contributed million in equity financing towards the 0 million cost. The project has now raised a total of million in outside equity, putting it in a strong position to secure favourable debt financing. West Harbor is planned as a world class destination. In its first phase of construction, it will include renowned chef-driven restaurants, a market hall, artisan craft beers, live entertainment and events, as well as other special land and water based entertainment attractions to be announced when the project breaks ground this summer. A 6,200-seat amphitheatre, designed by Tucker Sadler Architects, is also proposed and is currently undergoing environmental review in accordance with the California Environmental Quality Act (CEQA). The amphitheatre is being developed in partnership with the family-owned Nederlander Organization, founded in 1912. Nederlander is one of the largest and most respected operators of live theatre and music venues in the USA. West Harbor is a collaboration between The Ratkovich Company and Jerico Development, local developers with a long history of significant projects throughout the Los Angeles region. With this new influx of equity and A-list tenants, waterside attractions and vessel operations partner Harbor Breeze Cruises, West Harbor is set to be a class apart as a new, ground-up development in the LA and Southern California markets. “This significant investment from Osprey Investors is another example of the strong interest from institutional partners in West Harbor,” said Wayne Ratkovich, founder The Ratkovich Company. “West Harbor is one of the most unique projects I have been involved with, and it is truly the future of waterfront destination dining and entertainment in Southern California. This new equity investment is a major vote of confidence in our vision for West Harbor.” West Harbor will have an airy California ‘industrial chic boathouse’ feel benefiting its location at the intersection of open space, a working port and a true community hub. Initial tenants include the first-ever satellite location of Hollywood icon Yamashiro, as well as Mike Hess Brewing, light and art museum Hopscotch, Poppy + Rose, Sugar Factory, Jay Bird’s Chicken, King & Queen Cantina, Pitfire Pizza, The Win-Dow and Olala Crepes providing a true, full spectrum of dining and entertainment options. As consumer habits have shifted to value open space and outdoor dining due to the pandemic, West Harbor’s indoor-outdoor design has served as a significant value-add amenity for restaurants, stores and other attractions soon to call it home. “West Harbor’s million in equity raised is a milestone for our waterfront – and our entire community,” said Elise Swanson, president of the San Pedro Chamber of Commerce. “This level of investment in San Pedro will not only make West Harbor a true world-class dining and entertainment destination, but will boost our current businesses by bringing more visitors to our waterfront. Forgive the pun, but a rising tide lifts all boats, and that is what is happening here in San Pedro.” – May/June 2022 25
