CenterCal the developers inspiration for the impending redesign of the Redondo Beach waterfront pier and marina come from many sources, among them projects in Washington, Oregon and Utah. Elements of Pike’s Place Market in Seattle, the stylized outdoor marketplace of Bridgeport Village in Portland, Ore., and the grand water features at Station Park in Farmington, Utah. The companys vision for the waterfront includes a small boutique hotel by the shore as well as a small movie theater that would serve dinner.
