Welcome to the Project Website for the revitalization of Naval Information Warfare Systems Command's (NAVWAR) facilities on the Old Town Campus (OTC) at Naval Base Point Loma,
San Diego, California
The project website provides the latest information on the Navy OTC Revitalization project.
What’s next? The Navy has completed its evaluation of Statements of Qualifications received from potential master developers in response to Step 1: Request for Qualifications for the Navy OTC Revitalization Lease and Development Opportunity. The Navy has selected four potential master developers who were determined to be best qualified to advance to the next phase, Step 2: Request for Proposals. Visit the Developer Solicitation page to learn more.
The Naval Base Point Loma Old Town Campus is home to Naval Information Warfare Systems Command (NAVWAR). NAVWAR needs new mission-capable and modern facilities to support its cyber security mission. The Navy is considering plans to maximize the value of approximately 70.3 acres of Navy-owned underutilized property at the Old Town Campus to support NAVWAR needs. NAVWAR provides $3.2 billion annually to the San Diego regional economy. The potential redevelopment would bring additional economic benefits to the region through the construction and operation of new commercial, residential, and transportation facilities.
The Navy has completed its evaluation of Statements of Qualifications received from potential master developers in response to Step 1: Request for Qualifications for the Navy OTC Revitalization Lease and Development Opportunity. The Navy has selected four potential master developers who were determined to be best qualified to advance to the next phase, Step 2: Request for Proposals. Step 2 will close on August 9, 2023. At the conclusion of the competitive solicitation process in late 2023, the Navy will enter into exclusive negotiations with the selected potential master developer and will work with them on multiple options for potential private development of the site. Meanwhile, the Navy will continue to evaluate the feasibility of a NAVWAR-only development funded by traditional military construction methods. Visit the Developer Solicitation page to learn more about the Navy’s competitive solicitation for a potential master developer.
In accordance with the National Environmental Policy Act (NEPA) of 1969, as implemented by the Council on Environmental Quality, the U.S. Navy prepared a Draft Environmental Impact Statement (Draft EIS) for the Navy OTC revitalization. The Draft EIS evaluated the potential environmental effects associated with modernization of OTC to support NAVWAR’s current and future operational readiness. An EIS is considered the appropriate document for analyzing the proposed action to modernize NAVWAR’s facilities on OTC through demolition, construction, and renovation of buildings, utilities, and infrastructure. The Draft EIS was available for public comment from May 14, 2021 through August 12, 2021.
In response to public and agency comments requesting additional details before a decision is made and a Record of Decision is signed, the Navy will identify – through a competitive solicitation process – a potential master developer that can work with the Navy to develop more detailed site plans before a final alternative is selected. These development plans will help inform the Navy’s required environmental analyses under statutes such as NEPA, the National Historic Preservation Act, and the Coastal Zone Management Act.
