Seaport Village Re-Invisioned
Seaport District Proposal Includes Kelly Slater Wave Pool Attraction
Downtown San Diego’s Seaport Village has been know as a tourist destination for several decades with various gift shops, kiosks, and dining venues. On recent years, this destination has lost its luster, and no longer attracts the local clientele.
A new design proposal from McWhinney + DJM Capital Partners would incorporate extraordinary design that would certainly attract the locals with buildings, public spaces, and even infrastructure that surprise, delight, and elicit awe from all who experience them.
One of the key components of the New Seaport District Design Proposal is the incorporation of the Kelly Slater Wave Company’s man-made wave pool, which has become a viral sensation since it’s it’s public debut in early 2016.
The Kelly Slater Wave Company bringing perfect waves to Downtown San Diego?
The Kelly Slater Wave Company has combined cutting edge science, engineering and design to create a man-made wave that far surpasses a surfer’s dream of the perfect wave.
Watch the KSWC wave in action, and see why this attraction would attract the locals and tourists alike.
