Chula Vista Councilman John McCann and Community Leaders Celebrate Port Development

    McCann says Chula Vista residents deserve better infrastructure


    The Port of San Diego and Chula Vista city council each voted unanimously to move forward with plans to build a $1 billion, 1,600-room waterfront hotel and convention center.  

    Chula Vista councilman John McCann celebrated the news, saying residents of Chula Vista deserve this upgraded infrastructure.

    “It’s the best feeling in the world, we’ve been working on this for over two decades and to finally give the people of Chula Vista something that they deserve, the amenities that they will cherish forever, this is a project that will last for over a hundred years,” said McCann.

    The hotel resort will not only feature extravagant rooms, but it will also have a convention center with four ballrooms, three levels of meeting space, and even two outdoor lawns. This is the inaugural resort and convention center in the South Bay.

    “After decades of hard work, our dreams of a world-class development on our Bayfront are becoming reality,” declared Chula Vista Mayor Mary Casillas Salas in a statement.

    Construction is underway and a celebration is anticipated for mid-summer 2022. Construction will result in summer road closures and detours. Specifically, Sandpiper Way between Chula Vista Marina and G Street is closed with a detour route set up. Additionally, Bayside Parkway between Quay Avenue and Sandpiper Way is also closed. The opening of the hotel is set for 2025.
