Ports O’ Call Redesign

By Karen Robes Meeks

The designer behind the vision for the popular High Line park in New York will be involved in the project to reimagine Ports O’ Call Village on the San Pedro waterfront.

James Corner Field Operations, which helped to turn an old railway into a 1.45-mile-long park through the west side of Manhattan, will lead landscape design and master planning for the $150 million West Coast project, with Rapt Studio overseeing overall architecture and design, according to Curbed.

The developers The Ratkovich Co. and Jerico Development are expected to unveil new drawings and a schedule of the project, recast as the San Pedro Public Market, on March 20 at a LA Waterfront Town Hall meeting.

The first phase of construction will be completed by 2020, and will feature dining, retail and open green space.
