Decision on Navy Complex Development Delayed

The Centre City Development Corp., San Diego’s redevelopment agency for downtown, said Sept. 20 that it needs more time to evaluate a project for the Navy Broadway Complex site, and postponed any decision at its Sept. 27 meeting. The proposed project by the Manchester Financial Group was scheduled for a formal vote on that date.

The CCDC said the addition of two new members to its board, plus information gleaned from public meetings, required more time to assimilate.

“Clearly, we heard at this week’s City Council meeting that taking additional time for review will not hinder the ability of the Navy and the developer to continue their lease negotiation process,” said CCDC Chairwoman Jennifer LeSar.

The Navy awarded development rights on the nearly 15 acres to Manchester, which has proposed several office towers, a hotel and retail space. The Navy also mandated that a long-term lease must be struck with Manchester before Jan. 1 or the property would revert to the Base Realignment and Closure Commission. That would open up the property for use by other federal agencies.
