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 received OTC Revitalization proposals from shortlisted master developers by the August 9th deadline and has begun the evaluation process. The Navy plans to select one proposer by the end of calendar year 2023 to enter into a period of exclusive negotiations. 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 approximately $3.5 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 received OTC Revitalization proposals from shortlisted master developers by the August 9th deadline and has started the evaluation process. The Navy plans to select one proposer by the end of calendar year 2023 to enter into a period of exclusive negotiations.
On April 10, 2023, the Navy shortlisted four potential master developers to advance to Step 2: Request for Proposals for revitalization of OTC. The shortlisted potential master developers had approximately four months to prepare their proposals to include technical and financial information to specify how they would achieve the Navy’s requirements. Proposals include details such as site and design drawings for the new government facilities; demonstration of the concept for private development; specifics on how they would finance the project; and a proposed schedule for achieving key milestones of the government facilities.
The Navy is now reviewing the proposals to select one potential master developer. The Navy will work with the selected master developer on multiple options for the private development of OTC, while continuing 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 environmental analyses under statutes such as NEPA, the National Historic Preservation Act, and the Coastal Zone Management Act, among others.
