Calling it the cornerstone of what will someday be a regional attraction, city officials gathered this morning to officially break ground on San Pedro's Downtown Harbor project. The project will create the necessary land and harbor infrastructure to accommodate development of a new town square and promenade on the water. The location, just north of the Los Angeles Maritime Museum, will become a centerpiece of the ongoing revitalization of the Los Angles waterfront, proponents said.
The $35.5 million project is scheduled for completion by mid 2014. It will create a water cut with 1.2 acres of water reaching inland, a public overlook pier, floating docks for tall ships, and a town plaza.

Master Plan for San Pedro Harbor Waterfront Project
The Downtown Harbor project will be finished in time to host an August 2014 tall ships festival in San Pedro. By that time, other projects will also be in place, including the USS Iowa battleship attraction and the Crafted arts and crafts warehouses, both set to come on line this summer.
