The CCDC is the public, non-profit corporation created by the City of San Diego to staff and implement Downtown redevelopment projects and programs. Formed in 1975, the corporation serves on behalf of the San Diego Redevelopment Agency as the catalyst for public-private partnerships to facilitate redevelopment projects adopted pursuant to redevelopment law. Through an operating agreement, CCDC is the Agency’s representative in the development of retail, residential, office, hotel, cultural and educational projects and public improvement projects.
The following will summarize the Wednesday, October 22 board meeting and will illustrate the continual process the CCDC undertakes in maintaining redevelopment in Downtown San Diego: CCDC News Digest (10-22-08) Board Meeting Summary.
The CCDC Board granted concept design approval for a Navy Broadway Complex Park in the Columbia/Marina Districts. The Navy Broadway Complex (NBC) will be located on the western half of the block bounded by Broadway, Harbor Drive, Pacific Highway and the extension of E Street. The site will include a 1.9 acre park that adjoins the proposed Manchester Pacific Gateway, LLC development as part of the overall NBC development.
The CCDC and the projects design team incorporated feedback from the community outreach process and community workshops. Minor modifications to the original NBC Park design are proposed to conform to the recently modified North Embarcadero Visionary Plan. The park will also implement a number of the recommendations of the Downtown Community Plan and result in additional open space for downtown.
