A step closer to realising a plan


The Los Angeles Harbour Commission has moved a step closer to realising a plan to develop a marine research centre on the waterfront, the Shipping Gazette informs. 
This comes as the commission has certified the final Environmental Impact Report for the proposed redevelopment of City Dock No 1.
The action sets the stage for creation of a research institute where leading scientists, researchers and entrepreneurs can collaborate on solutions to marine, environmental and maritime industry challenges, a statement from port authorities said.
"This is an important step toward realising the vision of a cutting-edge academic research facility that will be at the forefront of marine-oriented research and development," said port executive director Geraldine Knatz.
The project calls for a 28-acre campus on the port's oldest municipal pier to serve as a centre for ocean-related research, education, business development and green technology. The anchor tenant would be the Southern California Marine Institute (SCMI), a consortium between Occidental College, the USC Wrigley Institute for Environmental Studies, the UCLA Department of Atmospheric and Ocean Sciences and the Ocean Studies Institute representing eight California State University campuses. SCMI currently occupies a much smaller site at Berth 260 on Terminal Island.
