San Pedro’s soon-to-be under-construction waterfront mixed-use development West Harbor — formerly known as San Pedro Public Market — will open in 2022 with Long Beach’s Gladstone’s as its anchor tenant, Eater LA Wednesday first reported. Although West Harbor is now not slated to break ground until early 2021 on the former site of the Ports O’ Call, Gladstone’s is one of many food and beverage offerings already lineup for the forthcoming 42-are development.
Gladstone’s, which got its start with a Malibu outpost 50 years ago, will offer the same experience patrons have come to expect at its new San Pedro home: seafood, ocean views, and a breeze to boot. Reps for the restaurant did not immediately respond to a request for comment by What Now Los Angeles.
Other tenants secured for West Harbor include an in-the-works brewery and beer garden, a yet-to-be-named eatery from Greg Morena — Pappy’s Seafood, the Albright — and a restaurant and market from chef and owner Robert Bell, also unnamed as of this publication. Bell is known for Chez Melange which recently closed its Redondo Beach doors.
Across the planned restaurants, West Harbor will offer 35,000 square feet of dining space right along the waterfront. Other uses in the development include AltaSea marine research facility, a 6,200-seat amphitheater, and a dock. Developers in June announced that West Harbor, which was slated to break ground this year, won’t go vertical until 2021.
“The ongoing public health crisis has greatly impacted our communities and the way our shared spaces will evolve,” developers told the Long Beach Post in a statement earlier this year. “In consideration of these circumstances, we have updated our construction timeline to an early 2021 groundbreaking. It is important to take this time to review our existing plans to ensure that they maximize the open-air nature of our site and best support the developing needs of tenants and all partners in this new era.”
[Editor’s note: this article was updated to clarify the planned Gladtone’s is from the owners of the restaurant’s Long Beach location and not the original in Malibu.]
