Navy Broadway Complex developer Doug Manchester has asked the state Coastal Commission to withdraw his application to redevelop the waterfront site, saying he believes the panel’s approval of the project in 1991 will suffice despite the agency’s objections.

Manchester stated in a May 24 letter that he has met all of the Coastal Commission’s obligations for building a multiplex of hotels, offices, shops and museums on the bay front.

In October, Coastal Commission Executive Director Peter Douglas told the Navy, which owns the 14-acre property, that the redevelopment project must be reviewed by the state agency again because of increased traffic in the area and Manchester’s decision to include condo-hotels in the project.

Calls placed to Manchester and commission officials were not returned Thursday afternoon. Check back later for more as this story develops.
