The Port of San Diego, Calif., has approved the first lease for the massive Chula Vista Bayfront project — a destination RV park that will be an affordable complement to the planned resort hotel and convention center, according to the Times of San Diego.

Under the 66-year lease, Michigan-based Sun Communities will develop a 246-site RV park with a welcome center, market, restaurant, pool, day spa, fitness center and other amenities.

The lease calls for $55 million in improvements to the former industrial property at E Street and Bay Boulevard. Groundbreaking is expected “in the very near future,” according to the port.

“With the Costa Vista RV Resort, Sun will be providing a destination experience with lower-cost overnight accommodations as well as enhanced public access and recreation including walking trails and other improvements on and around the site,” said Garry Bonelli, chairman of the board of port commissioners.

The Costa Vista RV Resort will be the first major component of the 535-acre Chula Vista Bayfront Master Plan, which envisions a world-class destination on San Diego Bay with more than 200 acres of parks, open space, a shoreline promenade, walking trails, RV camping, shopping, dining and more.
