As you walk down South on Pacific Highway in Downtown San Diego, passing Breeza in the Little Italy District, Bayside, The Grande at Santa Fe and Electra in the Columbia District you will notice the Navy Headquarter building to your right just between Broadway and the Midway Aircraft Museum. The say that Manchester is moving ahead with the project that has been talked about for a while now…the $1.6 billion 2.9 million square foot complex along the Embarcadero and the San Diego Bay.
The plans, already approved by the Navy will include:
- 4 office towers
- 3 hotels
- Retail space
- Restaurant space
- 41,000 square foot museum space
- Underground parking
- 1.9 acre park
- New Navy headquarters
There is still some litigation and other objections to the project but this will hopefully be resolved soon. Manchesters plan for the 1st phase of the project is at a cost of $850 million and is to be the construction of two hotels and two office buildings to start in the 1st quarter of 2013 and to be completed in two years. The $750 million 2nd phase, including the park, two office buildings and a hotel, would then follow.
