Dana Point Harbor Set to Make Waves

November 07, 2017

Dana Point revitalization efforts continue to make strides as the County of Orange has named developer Dana Point Harbor Partners LLC to head the estimated $300 million dollar renovation of Dana Point Harbor. It’s an exciting time for the city, residents and businesses, as additional plans for improvements in Doheny Village and the Lantern District are underway, bringing new energy and economic vitality to the community.

Under the proposed plans, South Cove residents will have easy access to a wide variety of new harbor amenities – all within walking distance of the barefoot community. Slated to begin construction in 2018, planned features for the harbor include new restaurants, outdoor dining areas, marine-related retail and a small portion of office space. The renovation will also showcase a market hall and food court, providing a variety of dining options for South Cove residents and tourists alike.

Additional attractions include a new 9,000 square foot surf museum, highlighting and paying homage to the city’s storied history. Two new hotels – a 130-room boutique and 136-room offering more affordable options will replace the existing Marina Inn on Dana Point Harbor Drive.

The city’s contributions to the renovations and additional amenities – including the recently introduced Harbor Shuttle service that provides easy access to the Ocean Institute, Baby Beach and other harbor businesses and dining spots – are sure to bring added value and appeal to Dana Point. Fortunately, there’s still time for interested buyers to get in on the ground floor, and stake their claim at South Cove – the first development of its kind in Dana Point in more than 25 years.
