WEYMOUTH - The agency in charge of the SouthField development still has no money to acquire the remaining 900 acres from the Navy and could run out of operating funds in September, its CEO said.

"Right now we have no foreseeable way of coming up with the money needed to close," said Kevin Donovan, head of the South Shore Tri-Town Development Corp.

The Navy is pressuring Tri-Town to prove it can come up with $43 million to buy the land so the agency's private developer, LNR Property Corp., can go to work.

Donovan also would like to renegotiate that price, which was agreed upon last March. Since then, the overall real estate market has continued to slide.
