Navy Old Town Campus Revitalization Planning

As the Department of the Navy’s Old Town Campus (OTC) seeks to revitalize and redevelop the Naval Information Warfare Systems Command (NAVWAR) facilities to meet its mission, SANDAG and the Navy have committed to exploring a partnership to deliver new facilities for NAVWAR.

This commitment was realized on September 19, 2019, when Secretary of the Navy Richard V. Spencer, Mayor Kevin Faulconer, and Hasan Ikhrata signed an Agreement establishing the framework for continued engagement and collaboration. The Agreement outlines how SANDAG and the Navy will work together throughout the environmental clearance process and establish a timeline for NAVWAR redevelopment.

As a result of the SANDAG Airport Connectivity Subcommittee's work in 2019, one concept being explored includes a Central Mobility Hub at the OTC property, with supportive land use such as housing, retail, and office space. For decades, San Diego has explored ways to improve regional connectivity to San Diego International Airport. With future traffic impacts to current San Diego International Airport roads projected to exceed capacity, combined with insufficient transit access to the airport, SANDAG has made it a chief priority to identify a solution for a direct transit connection to the airport.

The Central Mobility Hub concept would include a state-of-the-art transportation center with a direct connection to the airport including connections to the Trolley, COASTER, Amtrak Pacific Surfliner, Rapid transit, local bus, and future transportation options, offering San Diegans a one-transfer connection to the airport from major destinations in the region for generations to come.
