Site Location

The Seaside East opportunity site is approximately 700 acres of undeveloped coastal upland that is bounded by Seaside’s border to the south, General Jim Moore Boulevard to the west, Eucalyptus Road and the planned Veteran’s Cemetery to the north and Habitat Management area under the Bureau of Land Management to the east.

Development Options

The City’s General Plan and a 2007 market study calls for varying densities of residential units with about 50 acres of neighborhood retail. The City is currently re-evaluating the highest and best use of Seaside East. A regional trade and convention center facility and district is being considered. Requests for Proposals for a Master Developer will be released at a future date.

First Stage of Planning

Due to multiple development constraints such as site clean up, limited water, the Fort Ord Base Reuse Plan's new housing cap and the need for development of a Specific Plan and Master EIR, the City anticipates it will be three to five years of planning before breaking ground on the first of many phases of construction.
