San Diego, CA — Perry Dealy, President and CEO of Dealy Development and project executive for Manchester Pacific Gateway, announced that Manchester Financial Group has finalized a settlement agreement with the California Coastal Commission that further advances the development of the Manchester Pacific Gateway project located on the San Diego Waterfront at Broadway and Harbor Drive.

Eight years in negotiations, this collaborative settlement agreement between Manchester Financial Group and the California Coastal Commission opens the door for development of the world-class, 8-city block Manchester Pacific Gateway, which will include: a new NAVFAC Government Administration Class A office building for the U.S. Navy, a 1.9 acre waterfront park, art and cultural museum, restaurants, entertainment, retail, public parking, and new waterfront access embracing downtown San Diego’s North Embarcadero Visionary Plan on the San Diego Bay.

Papa Doug Manchester, Chairman of Manchester Financial Group, stated “It’s truly a dream for me to have approval to move forward with this stunning and engaging gateway to the city I love and call home. And to do so with the best architectural and development team in the world to ensure that every detail speaks to precision, elegance and style that will last for generations to come. I view this as an opportunity to recruit the best retail and hospitality businesses to San Diego to positively impact our economic growth and create jobs. Manchester Pacific Gateway is a project for everyone, for our local communities and for visitors from all over the world to see.”
