Discovery Princess

The Port of Los Angeles released a draft Request for Proposals (RFP) for the future development of a new Outer Harbor Cruise Terminal and redevelopment of the existing World Cruise Center on the LA Waterfront, according to a press release.

“This cruise development initiative is critical to our business, our community and the LA Waterfront, and we want to make sure it’s done right,” said Port of Los Angeles Executive Director Gene Seroka.

“Each cruise ship that calls the Port of Los Angeles generates more than $1 million into the local economy, so it’s important that we maximize our opportunities to bring more visitors and revenue into the community.”

The RFP involves the development, redevelopment and management of all cruise operations at the LA port. The project will entail the development of a new Outer Harbor Cruise Terminal at Berths 45-51. 

The Inner Harbor Cruise Terminal or the current Los Angeles World Cruise Center will be redeveloped as well.

Director of Waterfront and Commercial Real Estate at the Port of Los Angeles Michael Galvin said: “Issuing a draft RFP for input allows us to leverage the expertise and creativity of prospective proposers, as well as get important feedback from businesses, the local community and public.

“This collaborative approach gives us the best opportunity for success.”
