Seaport Village Remains Open for Business Ahead of Massive Renovation

by Katie Sloan

Downtown San Diego’s waterfront is set to undergo some major changes, but until that time comes, Seaport Village is open for business.

The Port of San Diego reclaimed ownership of this 14-acre restaurant, retail and entertainment attraction on Oct. 1, and the organization has big plans for Seaport’s immediate future.

Penny Maus, department manager of real estate and business development for the Port of San Diego, notes they are seeking innovative retailers and unique dining concepts to round out the existing tenant roster. The port is welcoming tenants that are looking for shorter lease terms ahead of the significant transformation set to commence in about four to six years.

Maus notes this current leasing opportunity is an ideal way for new and emerging businesses to test a concept in an incubator-type space — one that provides high visibility but a shorter commitment than standard leases.
