San Pedro Public Market Construction

Gafcon, Inc. is collaborating with Jerico Development and The Ratkovich Company by providing pre-construction and project management services for the $150M public market in San Pedro located on 42-acres of waterfront property. This project, which started as a shared vision between the Port of Los Angeles and the local San Pedro community, was memorialized in the 2009 San Pedro Waterfront Environmental Impact Report/Statement (EIR). The Los Angeles Harbor Commission called for proposals to develop the site in 2012 and since then, Jerico Development and The Ratkovich Company have worked collaboratively with the local community to develop the plans we are working to deliver today.

01/21/20 – Facing Port of L.A. Commissioners, San Pedro Public Market Construction Likely to Move Forward

Developers of the 42-acre San Pedro Public Market, the project taking over the area’s famed waterfront, are likely to finally receive their construction permit to break ground should the Port of Los Angeles harbor commission approve the permit at Thursday’s meeting. Alan Johnson of Jerico Development, Inc., the leader behind the project, echoed what he had said in October after the project secured $30 million in funding: “We will be breaking ground on the San Pedro Public Market within the coming weeks and open in the fall of 2021 should the Commission vote in approval.” The arduous battle to get the project going has been a seven-year long endeavor and, most recently, included yet another return to the drawing board for designs, the third in the project’s existence.

After plans were revealed in March 2016 for the $100 million renovation of the San Pedro’s famed, 30-acre waterfront area known as Ports O’ Call, not many were impressed—including the large portion of Long Beach fisherman and sailors who bounce back and forth between Ports O’ Call and Long Beach. The initial proposals, marked by saturated colors and nods to the berths of the 1950s and 60s, were eventually replaced by the current renderings below that offer a more warehouse, earth tone-centric aesthetic.
