About The Headquarters at Seaport District
The Headquarters at Seaport District is the revitalization of the Old Police Headquarters – a complex of several historic buildings surrounding an open-air courtyard. The Headquarters is the gateway to a 20-acre waterfront development incorporating the historic Seaport Village. Its downtown location is within walking distance of the San Diego Convention Center, PETCO Park, upscale hotels, downtown businesses and the waterfront. This district currently draws more than six million annual visitors. The $40 million renovation project has transformed this historic complex into a 100,000-square-foot sophisticated, open air, urban retail, dining and entertainment destination. Guests will be provided a premier level of service with a full-time concierge staff and valet parking. The Headquarters at Seaport District was developed by Terramar Retail Centers.

Seriously, go check out The Headquarters and let me know what you think. I really enjoyed my first visit and will be heading back to Pizzeria Mozza for our next date night downtown. (With a stroll through the shops too of course)!
