SPAWAR Old Town Complex

The Navy Seeks Industry Input on Redevelopment of San Diego Base

Navy Old Town Redevelopment Industry Forum

November 5, 2018

SAN DIEGO, Calif. - Congresswoman Susan Davis (CA-53) and Congressman Scott Peters (CA-52) were amongst the many community leaders that came out Monday to endorse the Navy's vision to redevelop a portion of a San Diego Navy Base. 

The Navy hosted an "Industry Forum" aboard Naval Base Point Loma Old Town Campus (NBPL OTC) to allow industry leaders to hear about the redevelopment project, tour the location and review opportunities to redevelop the 70.5-acre site in exchange for new government facilities.

208 personnel attended the Industry Day representing 96 real estate, architecture, capital investment, construction and engineering companies.

In September 2018, the U.S. Navy issued a "Request for Interest" (RFI) on Federal Business Opportunities to solicit valuable industry input. Monday was industry and the public's first opportunity to hear the details of the Request for Information and see the team of united supporters including Congressional Representatives, Navy Leadership and the City of San Diego.

Rear Adm. Boris Becker, the Commander, Space and Naval Warfare Systems Command (SPAWAR), discussed the importance of his commands highly technical mission and the difficult challenges his workforce faces completing that mission in a World War II aircraft manufacturing plant.

Rear Adm.  Yancy Lindsey, the Commander Navy Region South West, discussed the Navy's willingness to consider all types of Industry concepts to help the Navy achieve its goals to redevelop the facilities. From long term leases to outright land swaps the Navy is anxious to hear what industry and the local community would propose.

Parts of the SPAWAR facility date back to World War II. The cavernous warehouses were used to manufacture bombers. Rear Adm. Lindsey concedes the Navy’s high-tech hub has to be rebuilt.

The City of San Diego Planning Department added their support with a briefing on the new City Council approved Midway-Pacific Highway Community Plan. The City emphasized how it had worked with the Navy and sees this new development as an "anchor store" and catalyst for the complimentary Midway-Pacific Highway Community Plan.

Industry Questions or requests for clarification are due November 26th. Industry responses and ideas are due to the Navy on January 18th.
