The Port of Los Angeles announced that they have broken ground on the $33 million LA Waterfront town square and promenade.
The San Pedro Public Market will replace Ports O’ Call, the New England-esque seaside “village” that served the local community and tourists for more than half a century. The new concept, described as “a world-class, urban waterfront destination,” will continue to serve as a family friendly spot with shopping, dining, fresh markets, and entertainment designed with sustainable urban elements.
The project includes a 15,000 square-foot food hall with a variety of vendors serving food, beer, wine, and possibly a full bar. The 40-acre space will also include offices, a promenade, 600 feet of courtesy slips and pedestrian paths, container kitchens surrounded by an outdoor garden, playgrounds and recreation areas, waterfront taxis and cruises and a Town Square that will connect the new development to San Pedro historic downtown district.
