Ports O’ Call Village, located along the Port of Los Angeles main channel in San Pedro, is a seaside plaza that features souvenir and gift shops, along with restaurants, sweetshops, fish markets and quick-bite eateries. This New England-style seaside village encompasses 15 acres of shops, restaurants and attractions. A meandering promenade of cobblestone streets connects the specialty shops.

History

Ports O' Call Village, branded as an "elaborately themed seaside entertainment venue", was conceived and built by David Tallichet in 1963, a World War II pilot-turned restaurateur who also built the Castaway and 94th Aero Squadron. Tallichet envisioned an eclectic mixture of international destinations knitted together with cobblestone pathways, strolling musicians and global cuisine.

Development

In 2013, the Los Angeles Board of Harbor Commissioners called for the redevelopment of the entitled 30-acre waterfront site in the Port of Los Angeles that includes Ports O' Call Village. After a series of public meetings and extensive community input, in 2015, the Port of Los Angeles released its Public Access Investment Plan intended to create a sustainable and predictable approach to the Port’s yearly investment in non-cargo related, public-serving projects and programs.

In March 2016, the Los Angeles Board of Harbor Commissioners approved a 50-year lease for the new San Pedro Public Market on the site. Plans for San Pedro Public Market include restaurants, shopping, fresh markets, office space and a waterfront promenade with outdoor space and an open-air amphitheater. Construction is expected to begin in 2017 at a partial project cost of $90 million, paid by the developer. The San Pedro Public Market is expected to open in 2020, with demolition beginning as early as November 2016.
