Navy Broadway Complex may take longer than expected
Thursday, June 29, 2006
The latest site plans for the Bay front Navy Broadway Complex contain a little more open space than previous versions, but still less than the original design. San Diego city's redevelopment agency reviewed the plans Wednesday, KPBS reporter Alison St John has more.
The developer of the prime bay front site, the Doug Manchester Group, showed the Center City Development Board a new set of site plans for eight acres Navy Broadway Complex. It is the fifth version so far. Board member Wayne Raffesberger says since the plans keep changing, it may be unreasonable to expect the city to give its final approval by the end of July as planned.
Raffesberger: "We're still looking at these versions come at us , we saw the most recent one it's better its moving in the right direction, are we there yet, no not in my opinion we've still got a ways to go."
Raffesberger says he wont be satisfied till he sees an architectural plan that stuns him.
The navy and the Manchester Group are working to finalize a lease agreement by an end of the year deadline. CCDC President Nancy Graham said the agency could delay its approval till the very last moment if necessary. Alison St John, KPBS news.
