Innovation is coming to our seaside town

The San Pedro Public Market project along LA's waterfront is slated to open in 2020. The Port of Los Angeles remains dedicated to improving the public areas of the LA Waterfront and has spent $600 million dollar in major public access infrastructure improvement projects. With emerging tech and aerospace innovation, the port is also home to AltaSea, a 35-acre ocean marine research campus and lab built on a historic pier with access to the deep ocean. Building on innovation, these developments are moving North America's busiest port towards a science and tech-focused future.
