The Centre City Development Corp. will continue its discussions about the Navy Broadway Complex Wednesday, but a spokeswoman said the agency won’t make a final decision.

Before the downtown planning agency’s board adjourned last week’s seven-hour meeting, its members decided to continue talking about the Navy project tomorrow morning.

If the board completed its work in morning and felt comfortable with Doug Manchester’s plans for the waterfront property, the CCDC board said they’d meet again in the afternoon to consider approving the final project.

But that second meeting won’t happen, spokeswoman Tiffany Metti said today.

The board has delayed blessing the Navy Broadway Complex plans several times, starting in July, which has irked Manchester and Navy officials who are trying to wrap up talks soon so the Pentagon can finalize a lease before a critical Jan. 1 deadline.

Perry Dealy, president of the Manchester Financial Group, said he believes the CCDC delays have pushed his project behind schedule to meet the deadline.
