Majority of the 461 acres that comprise the National City Bayfront are occupied by the United States Navy and Port of San Diego. National City and the Port of San Diego have been working jointly to develop portions of the Bayfront while keeping the following guidelines in mind:
Accomplishments resulting from the City and Port working together include the 246-slip marina, restoration of Railcar Plaza and Santa Fe Historic Depot, remediation of Marina Gateway Hotel site and restaurant sites, extension of Marina Way, and streetscape improvements. State and federal grants in this area have assisted with environmental remediation and restoration of Paradise Marsh. Over $65 million of improvements have been completed or are in process in the Bayfront/Marina Gateway Area.

National City’s Community Development Commission is working with stakeholders such as the Port of San Diego and MSI to redevelop buildings and infrastructure. Near future plans include a new Aquatic Center and street improvements on Bay Marina drive, Harrison Avenue, 23rd Street, and Cleveland Avenue to create a more pedestrian friendly atmosphere.
The City of National City and the National City Community Development Commission have been working with Sycuan Tribal Development and Marina Gateway Development Company, LLC to develop a 174-room hotel with a 4,000 sq ft restaurant and 16,000sq ft commercial space. The hotel will overlook Paradise Marsh and have frontage along Bay Marina Drive and Interstate 5.
