The historic Broadway Pier, constructed in 1919, has accommodated the U.S. Navy, the region’s fishing fleet, cruise ships and the royal yacht during a 1983 visit by Queen Elizabeth. Since its recent renovation it is used as a cruise ship berth. The LEED® Gold certified project was designed to be environmentally friendly. The building includes two solar panel systems. One system is owned by the Port, which offsets at least 28 percent of the building’s energy needs and the other is owned by San Diego Gas & Electric (SDG&E). The sides of the sawtooth roof are C/S Louvers allowing for natural ventilation.
