The Port of San Diego and the City of Chula Vista are preparing to begin construction of a billion-dollar resort hotel and convention center.
According to a report from NBC San Diego, dump trucks started arriving at Chula Vista’s coastline to transport thousands of tons of dirt needed for the project.
The convention center and hotel will sit on 36 acres of the more than 535 acres of industrial bayfront being redeveloped in Chula Vista. There will be up to 1,600 rooms and 275,000 sq. ft. of conference center and meeting space and associated retail and resort-level amenities such as restaurant/bar/lounge facilities, recreational facilities, a spa, a pool with a lazy river, bike and boat rentals and more.
The development is part of a master plan approved by the California Coastal Commission in August 2012. The plan will be implemented jointly by the Port of San Diego and the City of Chula Vista in four major phases over a 24-year period.
