Chula Vista bayfront plan to see signs of life

CHULA VISTA, Calif. - The largest bayfront development on the West Coast will finally see signs of life beginning next year.

The Pacifica Companies unveiled architectural designs for a 186-room residential tower on the Chula Vista Bayfront. The 14-story tower also includes 4,000 feet of retail space.

It is the first phase of a seven-phase project that will develop more than 1,500 residential units on Chula Vista's waterfront.

"This is an opportunity that doesn't exist anymore in the state of California," said Pacifica Companies spokeswoman Allison Rolfe.

The tower will be the first new construction on the 550-acre bayfront that has been waiting for something good to happen for the past 30 years.

Anchoring what is called the Chula Vista Bayfront Master Plan will be a 1,500-room hotel resort and convention center.

Chula Vista city officials said there is enormous interest in the project, especially because it is the only waterfront property left for development in California.

Construction is expected to be completed on the new residential tower by 2019.

"We're actually planning on building something that we believe will be a world-class development that will attract people internationally," Rolfe said.
