The World Trade Center Assn. of Orange County said Monday that it has abandoned its efforts to develop a vacant five-acre site in downtown Santa Ana into a $100-million international trade complex.

H. Thomas Felvey, whose four-year effort to build a $96-million world trade center in downtown Pomona died earlier this year after he was unable to secure commitments from investors and tenants, has worked recently on a similar project in Santa Ana.
