About the Project

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 70.5 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.

Next Steps

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. The Navy is currently reviewing public comments received and preparing the Final EIS. Public comments received will be responded to in the Final EIS. Click here for more information on the NEPA process.

In addition to the No Action Alternative, the following five action alternatives are analyzed in the EIS:

  • Alternative 1 – NAVWAR-Only Redevelopment
  • Alternative 2 – Public-Private Redevelopment–NAVWAR and Higher Density Mixed Use
  • Alternative 3 – Public-Private Redevelopment–NAVWAR and Lower Density Mixed Use
  • Alternative 4 – Public-Private Redevelopment–NAVWAR and Higher Density Mixed Use with a Transit Center (Preferred Alternative)
  • Alternative 5 – Public-Private Redevelopment–NAVWAR and Lower Density Mixed Use with a Transit Center
