Cabrillo Mole terminal building

Document Description
The Cabrillo Mole (Mole) is a multimodal transportation hub used by cross-channel carrier passengers traveling between the mainland and Avalon and as a gathering place for residents and visitors. It is the primary point of entry; and thus, it serves as the gateway to the City of Avalon and Santa Catalina Island. As proposed, Phase II of the redevelopment process would build on Phase I improvements which were completed in late 2020. Phase I improvements were comprised of reinforcements to the concrete wharf structure and portions of the concrete slab on the Mole to ensure continued safe and reliable operation. Phase II improvements would replace and reconfigure the structure(s) on the Mole, improve pedestrian/passenger gathering/queuing areas and improve adjacent transportation circulation to better facilitate multimodal connectivity. As envisioned, Phase II improvements would include a new two-story building designed to accommodate existing commercial tenants (i.e., recreational tour services, deli, baggage services, ticketing operations, administrative offices and harbor operations) and new space for a restaurant/bar and similar complementary uses that take advantage of this unique location.
