San Diego May Soon Have a Grand Central Station

San Diego may soon have its own “Grand Central Station.” U.S. Navy Secretary Richard Spencer and SANDAG officials signed a formal agreement to revamp the Naval Base Point Loma Old Town Complex potentially. 

Local officials hope to use it as a transit hub to connect public rail to the San Diego International Airport. There are also plans to revamp the complex for Navy use, as well.

“With this agreement, we are taking our long partnership a step further, moving forward on a plan that will better protect our nation and invest in the community,” Spencer explained.

Currently, the complex is used by the Navy for cybersecurity and information officials, including the Naval Information Warfare Systems Command. 

Mayor Kevin Faulconer also said, “This project can strengthen the Navy’s presence in San Diego, create thousands of jobs and incorporate a transit hub to make it easier for people across the region to get to and from the airport.”
