About NTC Foundation

An unprecedented opportunity for San Diego is the creation of NTC at Liberty Station- a significant new flagship destination for arts, culture, science and technology at the former Naval Training Center in Point Loma.

The NTC Foundation was established in the year 2000 to renovate this signature community asset and transform it into a place where “Innovative Experiences” will inspire the lives for generations to come. NTC at Liberty Station will be an engaging 28 acre creative district brimming with innovation, collaboration and celebration in an historic setting at Liberty Station.

San Diego’s creative destination will:

  • Showcase, advance, and strengthen our Creative Community by providing a home to hundreds of San Diego’s most innovative and creative arts, science, culture and technology organizations. The collaborate nature of the setting, combined with extraordinary tenant benefits, will provide a place where ideas are born and resident companies create, innovate, demonstrate, exhibit, train and teach.
  • Provide a festive outdoor, sun-filled gathering place and a new source of civic pride for generations of San Diego residents, families, students, tourists, business travelers, and scholars. NTC at Liberty Station will be a place to explore, experience, engage and enjoy!
  • Restore 26 historic architecturally significant buildings on 28 park-like acres to their original Spanish Colonial Revival-style splendor all in a central San Diego location on the Bay with unparalleled views and a tranquil naturally beautiful setting.
  • Honor, respect and highlight the Naval Training Center’s rich and life-transforming past while building for the future.
