A prime piece of real estate has just become available for a restaurateur or restaurant group looking to drop a serious project in San Diego.

The San Diego International Airport’s $316 million Rental Car Center, currently in construction on the north side of Lindbergh Field at 3355 Admiral Boland Way, will be topped with a soaring new restaurant space that will have unobstructed views of the city skyline, the bay, and all the action on the runway.

The flexible layout of the 7,900-square-foot location, which will have a dedicated elevator to move patrons up to the restaurant, includes the potential for an outdoor patio and 180 feet of floor-to-ceiling glass-lined frontage.

With the project due to be completed by early 2016, the San Diego Regional Airport Authority has entrusted the lease of the restaurant to Location Matters; principal Michael Spilky shared that they're actively seeking a tenant who can deliver a concept representative of the San Diego community that is "casual, yet refined, craft beer and cocktail-centric, and an approachable and local artisanal food experience."

He said, "This is a generational opportunity to be the restaurant we all talk about for the next 30 years; a sustainable place to woo your out-of-town guests, have a date night, or even a power lunch."

Weigh in Eater readers, is there a particular restaurant group or local concept that you'd like to see here?
