In advance of a public workshop, developer 1HWY1 is leaning on the artistic work of its architect CallisonRTKL Inc. to engineer a more visual — and potentially more digestible — experience of its proposed mega project Seaport San Diego.
The idea is to win over naysayers, Port of San Diego Commissioners in particular, with new and refreshed renderings that emphasize waterfront experiences over the project’s many towers, providing a perspective that was perhaps lacking in the past.
In November 2016, the port selected 1HWY1 to redevelop downtown’s Central Embarcadero, which includes Seaport Village and follows the coast from Embarcadero Marina Park North to the G Street Mole, just south of the USS Midway Museum. The parties have, since October 2017, been actively negotiating a development program and ground lease for the expansive site, although the board has yet to OK the project.
