In December 2016, the City of Seaside entered into a Purchase and Sale agreement with the KB Bakewell Development Partnership to develop ~85 net acres on the former Fort Ord Army Base. This development is directly south of the California State University – Monterey Bay campus, and will be designed to provide arts, entertainment, retail, recreation and housing opportunities to students, faculty and to the region atlarge.
This development is a once in a century opportunity for the City of Seaside.
The proposed Project area is ~85 net acres near the freeway interchange at Lightfighter Avenue and Highway 1. Bounded by Lightfighter to the north, Gigling road to the South, 1st Avenue to the West and 8th Avenue to the East, this large infill project will replace a dilapidated portion of the former Fort Ord Army Base. Most of the property will have views of the Monterey Bay, Moss Landing, Elkhorn Slough and the Fort Ord National Monument. The property is immediately to the south of the CSUMB Campus and only minutes from most of the popular Monterey Bay visitor attractions.
