It will include a 480-foot observation tower; partially underground aquarium; three hotels; shops and restaurants; 30 acres of new parkland, beach and promenades; and upgraded facilities for commercial fishing fleets. This completion will be just in time for the chance that the 2025 Olympic Games will be held in Los Angeles and the sailing events held in the San Diego Bay. Yehudi “Gaf” Gaffen, who leads the development team stated “I think San Diego is on the edge of a major renaissance. It will be transformative to downtown. It’s really going to turn San Diego into America’s finest city. We’ve called it that but I really don’t think we’ve believed it, but now it’s real.” The developer team will include: newly formed Protea Waterfront Development, consisting of Gaffen’s Gafcon construction management firm.
