A developer hoping to redevelop Redondo Beach’s King Harbor waterfront has reportedly filed a lawsuit against the city, hoping to block the implementation of a voter-approved anti-development measure.
CenterCal, the development firm behind a $3 billion redevelopment project known as The Waterfront, alleges a ballot initiative, approved by voters on March 7 and aiming to restrict coastal development, is not constitutional or legal, according to multiple news reports.
The firm is also seeking $14 million in a separate action, according to reports.
It could be months before a resolution is reached. CenterCal hopes the voter-approved initiative won’t be enforced, while those who supported the measure believe The Waterfront is too large a project for Redondo Beach’s King Harbor.
