CHULA VISTA, Calif. - Chula Vista got a glimpse of its future Tuesday.
The Unified Port of San Diego introduced to the Chula Vista City Council the consultants it hired to guide the development for the Bayfront Master Plan. Included in that presentation was a draft conceptual rendering of the South Bay city's bayfront. That rendering included a massive hotel resort and convention center and dozens of new buildings.
"I got goose bumps," said Galley at the Marina manager Casilda Duenes when 10News showed her the image.
She added, "If it's anything like what you showed me, once it gets started it's going to be huge."
The Galley at the Marina will be in the heart of the future development. It will take 20 years to fully build out the bayfront's 550 acres. It is the largest waterfront development on the West Coast.
The Port of San Diego, which owns much of this property, introduced the consultants who will advise Chula Vista and the Port on the bayfront's development.
"These are world-class consultants," said Port spokeswoman Tanya Castaneda.
So is their resume, which includes the new Freedom Tower in New York City. One of the consultants is the real estate advisor to the Port Authority of New York.
"Even in the concept, you get an idea of the world-class vision these consultants have," said Castaneda.
