Pendulum Properties has begun a multi-million dollar renovation of Peter’s Landing Marina Shopping Center at 16400 Pacific Coast Highway in Huntington Harbour.

“We will reinvigorate the center’s new storefronts, create walking paths, a park plaza for community use, a restyled boardwalk, exciting sculptures and much more,” said Kevin Hayes of Pendulum Properties. The center is reinventing itself for its 40th Anniversary in 2019.

It opened in 1979, overlooking a stunning marina and variety of boats. Not only does it have a dock for visitors but retail, restaurant, and office space. “We’re thrilled with the renovation which will make it one of the most spectacular waterfront centers in California,” said Lee Ann Canaday, owner of REMAX Fine Homes (a tenant at Peter’s Landing). Canaday expressed her excitement for the $10 million renovation on her KDOC-TV real estate show.

“It’s wonderful to see that the new ownership at Peter’s Landing is moving forward with a beautiful makeover,” said Huntington Beach City Councilman Patrick Brenden. “They’re doing it the right way by engaging the community and getting input to guide their design effort. For those who feared Peter’s Landing might end up being overdeveloped, new owner Kevin Hayes has listened and responded with something that will honor the character and history of Peter’s Landing.”

“We at Calvary Chapel of the Harbour love having our church home here and we look forward to seeing the center transformed as we approach our 15-year anniversary in this community (May 18, 2003),” said Pastor Joe Pedick. “We eagerly wait in anticipation of the new look and are very hopeful that the upcoming renovation will attract many more people to enjoy this beautiful, picturesque resort location. This truly is a wonderful place for all to be a part of.”

  1. Too bad the greedy new owners (Kevin Hayes and Pendulum Properties) are driving out all of the small businesses that have been in the complex for 20 years. They are doubling the rents and charging outrageous CAM charges. So far several businesses have left HB for Seal Beach now. They also plan to put fast food restaurants in that will attract more homeless. DO NOT SIGN A LEASE AT PETERS LANDING it’s awful to lease there! The new owners are ruining Sunset Beach!!! The poor church had no idea that they are next to be driven out. Sad.

  2. I am very hopeful that Peter’s Landing popularity can be brought back to the way it was in the 80’s. It’s such a beautiful area & has been woefully neglected for many years. I do understand the feelings of Joan S., & it is a shame when existing business’ are effected. My only response to her comment is that it’s impossible to please everyone when taking on such a huge renovation. And, while on that subject, I actually don’t think that the church should remain. They don’t fit the definition of recreational plans, which, as I understand it, is the direction that Peter’s Landing is going. That location would be so desirable for an upscale restaurant to occupy. (And, yes, I was here when it was The Red Onion, & know all about those problems). I am not anti-religion, but it just doesn’t seem that it is appropriate for the future plans of Peter’s Landing. Look around us, i.e., Pacific City, which is beautifully successful, & the plans for the area at the corner of PCH & 2nd St., which will also be a mix of retail, restaurants, Whole Foods, upscale types of business’. These are good role models for Peter’s Landing &, once completed, will also be competition. Bottom line, it’s very important that Peter’s Landing gets it right!
