The LA Waterfront consists of a series of waterfront development and community enhancement projects blanketing more than 400 acres of existing Port of Los Angeles property in the harbor communities of San Pedro and Wilmington. This area has changed dramatically over the last decade, and there is still more to come. The Port of Los Angeles remains committed to supporting projects that provide additional open space and encourage public access. Listed below are planned future projects coming to the LA Waterfront, sorted by when construction begins. Click here to see a list of completed projects.

Harbor Boulevard Roadway Improvements Project (2016)

Sampson Way RealignmentPlans for realigning Harbor Boulevard include a new signalized intersection at Harbor Boulevard and Sampson Way, south of 7th Street near Ports O’Call.

Construction is expected to be complete in 2018 at a total project cost of $14.8 million, paid by the Port of Los Angeles, including $4.9 million in grant funding from Los Angeles County Metropolitan Transportation Authority (Metro).

San Pedro Public Market (2017)

Ports O' Call Village RedevelopmentOriginally built in 1963, Ports O’ Call Village was a popular regional destination for many years. With 150,000 square feet of under-utilized property, the 30-acre parcel could expand to 300,000 square feet of commercial, retail, and restaurant space, with an additional 75,000-square foot conference center. The ultimate build-out size of the redevelopment site will depend on market demand and recommendations from the master developer. Plans for San Pedro Public Market include 16 acres of restaurants, shopping, fresh markets, office space and a waterfront promenade with ample outdoor space and an open-air amphitheater for live entertainment. Construction is expected to begin in 2017 at a partial project cost of $90 million, paid by the developer, LA Waterfront Alliance (The Ratkovich Company and Jerico Development). The San Pedro Public Market is expected to open in 2020.
