Gaylord Hotels will operate the resort once it opens.
(ABC10 News San Diego rendering)
CHULA VISTA (KGTV) -- Officials with the City of Chula Vista and Port of San Diego are expected to sign a Letter of Intent this week with Rida Development Corporation to build a billion-dollar resort hotel and convention center.
The hotel is expected to have more than 1,000 hotel rooms, 275,000 of convention space, and even a lazy river.
Here's the shocker: RIDA is building it, but Gaylord Hotels will operate the resort once it opens.
Gaylord was negotiating with the Port and city roughly a decade ago to build the resort when the whole thing crumbled.
