Judge Won’t Stop $1.2 Billion San Diego Project
Thursday, October 18, 2012
A $1.2 billion Navy redevelopment project on San Diego's waterfront has survived a court challenge that argued it didn't properly address the issue of terrorism.
U-T San Diego says a federal judge ruled Wednesday against a group that argued the current environmental assessment didn't properly consider possible terrorist threats.
Ian Trowbridge of the Navy Broadway Complex Coalition says he expects the group to appeal the ruling.
The Navy Broadway Complex is a joint venture between the Navy and U-T publisher and developer Douglas Manchester. Manchester agreed to build the Navy a new headquarters for free in return for the rights to build eight blocks of office, hotel, shopping and museum space.
The project still faces objections from the California Coastal Commission, which revoked its approval last year.
