SAN DIEGO — On Tuesday, October 17, the San Diego City Council voted 7-2 in favor to approve the construction in Mission Valley of the Legacy International Center, a $160 million conference center replete with luxury accommodations, a multi-functional theatre, a worldwide high-tech training center, an events center, and immersive tourist attractions.
“On behalf of Dr. Morris Cerullo, his wife Theresa, and all the leadership and staff of the Legacy International Center, I would like to extend our sincere gratitude to the San Diego City Council for their approval of our exciting new contribution to the community,” said Jim Penner, executive director of the Legacy Center. “Our center will work tirelessly to have a positive impact and be great neighbors in Mission Valley.”
The Legacy International Center was designed by the noted San Diego architectural firm of Carrier Johnson Plus Culture in conjunction with Dr. Morris Cerullo, the Center’s patron. The 18-acre hotel complex will offer spa services and luxury accommodations to the public. Its event center, fully-equipped with a lecture and performing arts hall, a 500-seat theatre, and a restaurant with catering services, will allow visiting groups and the local community to hold receptions and special events.
Dr. Cerullo has said the Center, which honors his seven-decades in ministry, is a “fulfillment of a vision, a dream that God gave to me.”
The site of the proposed building will be located where the Mission Valley Resort and a gym and mini-mart existed. Demolition will begin in December on the structures currently on the property.
