Just one glance at the render of what Harbor Drive in San Diego could look like and one quickly begins to wonder how anyone could challenge this type of development. Even still, the Navy has won a ruling and plans to move on to the next phases of getting this project underway.

The $1.2 billion redevelopment of the Navy’s downtown waterfront complex overcame a federal court challenge Wednesday when a judge ruled against environmentalists’ complaints that the project did not fully address terrorism issues raised by the 9/11 attacks in 2001.

Judge Jeffrey T. Miller said a new environmental assessment is not necessary and the Navy does not have to consider other places to build its new headquarters as the critics proposed.

The project, first conceived in 1986, is a joint venture between the Navy and U-T Publisher and developer Douglas F. Manchester, who won a 99-year lease of the 16-acre property from the Navy in 2006.
