DANA POINT — The East and West marinas in Dana Point Harbor have become one. The combined Marina at Dana Point will function as one boating community, after 47 years operating separately.

“We’re excited about having one marina,” said Joe Ueberroth, of Bellwether Financial Group, one of three development groups known collectively as Dana Point Harbor Partners which on Nov. 1 took over a 66-year lease from the County of Orange to run the harbor and oversee a $300 million redevelopment project. “It always has been one harbor. It allows us to have one set of rules for the whole community.”

Several restaurateurs inside The Hangar at the Long Beach Exchange (LBX) shopping center have fired up their equipment and are beginning to train staff in preparation of soft openings no later than February 1, according to Burnham-Ward Properties Partner Bryon Ward.

“I think the first tenants will start serving toward the end of this month,” Ward told the Business Journal. “What we’ve been trying to do is get as many of the stores opened concurrently as possible. But even though it is a cooperative environment with everybody enjoying the same common areas, they’re all individual stores and they’re all curated differently.”
