Document Description
Sea World Master Plan Update, Mission Bay Park Master Plan Update and Mission Bay Park Master Plan Update and Local Coastal Program Land Use Plan Amendment, and General Plan Amendment to allow an increase of the height limit on the existing 189.4 acre Sea World leasehold from 30 feet to a maximum of 160 feet, in order to implement the approved Sea World Initiative, Proposition D. The Sea World Master Plan Update proposes locations within the theme park area where taller structures could be developed with exhibits, rides or shows as well as an extensive renovation of the front gate area. One particular area is designated for development as a "Splash-Down" ride. Other structures within the Sea World leasehold but outside the theme park proposed to exceed 30 feet in height would include a hotel, an Educational Facility, the Special Events Center expansion, and a parking structure. The project also proposes expansion of the Sea World Marina (formerly "Perez Cove" Marina) and would allow for additional future redevelopment throughout the leasehold. The project site is located in Sea World.
