Revised Harbor Island plan adds hotels

Extra density not sought by Sunroad proposal

The Port of San Diego has completed an environmental study that could serve as a precursor to expanded development on the east side of Harbor Island. As many as three hotels and 500 rooms may be added to the project. Currently, a Hilton and Sheraton are sited on the peninsula adjacent to Lindbergh Field.

The project was originally slated to include a single hotel with up to 500 rooms, but in 2011 controversial local developer Sunroad Enterprises got permission from port board members, including then-chairman Scott Peters, to move forward with a proposal for a property with only 175 rooms.

According to the terms of the agreement, the hotel would pay $825,000 in annual rent once built, plus an additional $1,240,000 in marina rent "upon the project's stabilization."

Under the revised plan for Harbor Island, two more hotels could be developed, including the number of rooms Sunroad initially planned to build. Other additions to the plan include expansion of a pedestrian promenade already existing on the land's western edge to the east side, linking hotels with restaurant and commercial space.

The port's board of commissioners is set to consider the plan amendments at a public hearing on November 19.
