Port of LA, San Pedro begin phase two of $85 million waterfront promenade

The Port of Los Angeles has begun the second and last phase of the San Pedro Promenade along the Main Channel part of the planned West Harbor commercial development on the LA Waterfront.

The $31.4 million phase two project follows the completion of the $53.7 million phase one of the Promenade in October 2021, for a total port investment of more than $85 million.

Los Angeles City Council Member, Tim McOsker, said: “Throughout the harbour area, there are incredible projects happening in the Port of LA to make the Wilmington Waterfront and San Pedro Promenade more inclusive and inviting spaces for everyone.

“The second phase of the Promenade is crucial to connecting the West Harbor development, but more importantly, it will create public access and vitality to our beautiful waterfront for a space that residents throughout the One-Five and all of LA can enjoy.”

Los Angeles Harbor Commissioner, Diane Middleton, stated: “When this promenade is completed in the spring of 2025, it will be possible to walk from one end of the new West Harbor development to the other.

“The Port of LA will have spent over $85 million to deliver on our commitment to provide public access along our waterfront. This walkway will make the West Harbor project one of the most unique commercial developments in Southern California with outstanding up-close views of the nation’s busiest port.”

The two-phase construction project, which will run parallel to the port’s main channel from Berths 74-83, is set to be completed in spring 2025 and will result in almost one mile of waterfront open space and LA Waterfront access.

Phase two elements also include demolition, grading, installation of new piles, pier and deck structures, as well as utilities.

According to the Port of Los Angeles, many of the trademark components introduced during the first phase will be included in the second phase, including light posts, additional trees, drought-tolerant plants, and a concrete and granite paver promenade.

In March 2023, officials from the Port of Los Angeles broke ground on the $10.3 million Front Street Beautification Project on the LA Waterfront in a ceremonial launch.
