Twin Towers for Port Hueneme? | Hotel and 12-Story Business Office Towers Proposal


The City has received a proposal to develop twin 12-story towers on property located immediately west of Market Street and Surfside Drive at the entrance of the Lighthouse Promenade. One tower is designated for upscale hotel purposes while the other would provide Class A office space catering to customers, tenants and contractors of the Port and Navy. The proposal comes as a result of the City’s broad-based efforts to generate revenue by making the highest best use of property under its ownership.

The project is proposed by Harvey Champlin Associates, LLC., whose principal owner (Mr. Harvey Champlin) is a successful and well-regarded developer of hotel properties around the world. The planning, environmental review and permit process will likely take five or more years to complete The very first step is a Purchase and Sales Agreement that defines basic deal points and development parameters, including compensation to the City. A first draft of the Agreement was presented to the City Council at its meeting of October 16, 2017, and is expected to return within a month. It is important to point out that the Purchase and Sales Agreement is merely a starting point and does not constitute project approval. Numerous public hearings, special studies and community outreach will be conducted in the months and years to come before any final decisions are made.

    It sounds like a security issue for the Port and Navel Base. A 12 story building would be the perfect place for terrorists spy or carry out an attack!

    Trying to make Hueneme look like the SouthEast Coast?
    Tall Condoesque structures where Locals Can’t Afford to live blocking the only thing that was free in this nickel and dime county (the ocean view). The greed is beyond disgusting…
