The Redevelopment Agency of Seaside seeks to partner with a development team to build a resort-style outdoor regional retail and entertainment center. The development site is approximately 53 acres of vacant coastal land at the main gate of the former Fort Ord Army Base and adjacent to the growing California State University Monterey Bay (CSUMB) campus. The proposed mixed-use project will feature approximately 500,000 of open-air retail and entertainment space. Other project components include a 250 room hotel / conference center with spa amenities.
