A proposed downtown San Diego office complex on Navy-owned waterfront land has been given the go-ahead by the California Coastal Commission.
Manchester Pacific Gateway will cost $1.2 billion and encompass 2.9 million square feet of offices, including 351,000 square feet for Navy headquarters. The mixed-use complex will also include nearly 1,400 hotel rooms, 213,000 square feet of retail and restaurants, as well as a 40,000-square-foot museum.
Doug Manchester, former owner of the San Diego Union-Tribune, is the developer of the 12-acre site.
