The Boardwalk Shops at Marina del Rey has been a long time in the making, and it looks like the finish line will come around this time next year. In an interview with What Now Los Angeles (WNLA), President of May Realty Advisors Matthew M. May said that it has been over 15 years since design and development started for the project at Pier 44, and now restaurants are starting to sign on. May Realty is overseeing the project’s retail leasing.

May confirmed that three concepts are coming to the waterside, mixed-use development: KazuNori from the Sushi Nozawa restaurant group, Uovo, and HiHo Cheeseburger. May anticipates the tenants opening by mid-2021.

KazuNori focuses on hand rolls with crispy nori, warm rice, and fresh, raw fish like yellowtail and salmon. Uovo is an Italian restaurant that offers hand-made pasta made in Bologna, Italy. Additionally, HiHo Cheeseburger is known for its 100 percent grass-fed Wagyu beef cheeseburgers.

Located in the center of the Silicon Beach business district, The Boardwalk Shops at Marina del Rey is the only waterside office, retail, and restaurant center in the city. Once complete, it will feature 86,000 square feet of development across four buildings: a free-standing Trader Joe’s, a two-story retail and office building anchored by a flagship West Marine store, a two-story retail and restaurant pad to house an anchor restaurant, and a smaller, free-standing retail building for a fast-casual restaurant. The design of the buildings will feature floor-to-ceiling windows to showcase the views of the water.

Reps for the trio of restaurants on Monday did not immediately respond to WNLA’s request for comment.

This article has been updated to make clear that Uovo and HiHo Cheeseburger are not part of the Sushi Nozawa restaurant group.
