Dana Point developer selected
USA: Dana Point Harbor Partners (DPHP) LLC has been chosen by the County of Orange Board of Supervisors as master developer for the Dana Point Harbor revitalisation plan. The Florida marina was built in the early 1970s and is in need of significant modernisation.
The two-phase project commenced in July this year with street improvements. The second phase is tentatively scheduled to begin in January 2018 with construction planned for December 2018 to December 2025 subject to timing of option terms and lease approval.
DPHP’s programme proposes 2,296 wet slips, 388 drystack spaces and valet boater slips; commercial and retail space; two hotels; offices; and a surfing museum. The team comprises three co-managing members: Burnham Ward Properties (commercial core); Bellwether Financial Group (wet and dry marina); and R D Olsen Development (hotels).
Supervisor Todd Spitzer, Third District, explained the aim: “The harbour revitalisation is intended to enhance public access opportunities, provide updated visitor-serving commercial and marine recreational amenities, provide water quality improvements and promote coastal resource preservation throughout the harbour. Once completed, the harbour will be a space that all Orange County residents and visitors will benefit from.”
