Port of San Diego staff announced it has finished importing soil to the planned site of the Chula Vista Bayfront resort hotel and convention center. The district also announced it plans to import new soil for the planned RV resort site.
“The soil is needed to improve drainage and reduce impacts to the City of Chula Vista’s wastewater treatment infrastructure,” Port of San Diego staff said in a released statement.
Another round of importing soil is anticipated to occur in early 2019 (from early January to mid February).
Construction of the Chula Vista Bayfront resort hotel and convention center is expected to begin at some point in 2019. RIDA Chula Vista LLC will build the Marriott Hotel, which will feature 1,600-some hotel rooms and 275,000 square feet of convention and meeting space. The center will also include retail space, a restaurant, recreational amenities and a boat rental area.
The new hotel and convention center is adjacent to Chula Vista’s two marinas.
