BURLINGTON, Vt. (WCAX) Everyone wants to know when Burlington's giant hole in the ground will deliver on a promise. City Place is Burlington's future retail, housing and workspace. It was supposed to open this fall. That turned into the fall of 2020 and now it's scheduled to be done by the end of 2021. Our Dom Amato has followed this story since last year and he spoke with city leaders about the project's future. They say they're confident work will begin this spring but some people we spoke with are not feeling the same way. "We all know it's not happening," Rainbow Cornelia said. Cornelia is skeptical about the future of Burlington's City Place. The $230 million project including two 14-story towers is supposed to bring new stores, restaurants, housing, parking and office space to downtown Burlington. "It's going to help to reinvigorate downtown," said Kurt Wright, R-Burlington City Council president. Wright says City Place will help keep the downtown strong and help grow the … [Read more...] about Completion date for Burlington’s City Place pushed back again
Syracuse, N.Y. -- Central New York officials hoped that Amazon’s decision to put its new corporate headquarters in New York City would have a spin-off benefit for their region.Amazon’s decision Thursday to cancel plans to create 25,000 jobs in the Long Island City neighborhood of Queens dashed those hopes. Now, Central New York officials find themselves hoping the company’s move will not hurt the state’s efforts to market itself as a good place to do business.“From a New York standpoint, that’s actually pretty awful news,” Andrew Fish, senior vice president of business development at Syracuse-based CenterState CEO, an economic development planning and development organization, said of the company’s announcement.However, Fish said the company made it clear that its decision was based on opposition within Queens to the new headquarters and not on any disagreements with state officials.“They’re not saying it’s New … [Read more...] about Will Amazon’s decision not to put HQ2 in New York City hurt rest of state?
By Andrew Edwards | [email protected] | Inland Valley Daily BulletinPUBLISHED: March 29, 2017 at 11:28 pm | UPDATED: September 1, 2017 at 12:13 pm The downtown Long Beach shopping center that has gone by the moniker City Place since its 2002 opening is shedding its name as its owners work to erase the boundaries between its stores and the rest of the city’s core. While developer Tony Shooshani said the center is surrendering its old name without taking on an official moniker, he said the land bounded by Sixth Street, Long Beach Boulevard, Third Street and Pine Avenue can now be referred to as “The Streets.” He also said his company has leases in place to allow seven new restaurants to move in fairly soon. Shooshani laid out the changes during a Wednesday afternoon event at City Place where he announced the center’s new “un-named” status while he and others also commemorated the formal opening of the new offices for architecture firm Studio One … [Read more...] about Downtown Long Beach’s City Place sheds name, aims to be focal point of ‘The Streets’
click to enlarge Katie Jickling The vacant Burlington Town Center construction site The backhoes and crane have been quiet at the site of the mostly demolished Burlington Town Center. Developer Don Sinex has lacked the construction financing necessary under a development agreement with the city to move ahead with the next step: pouring the foundation for the 14-story City Place Burlington. The Burlington City Council voted 8-2 Monday to alter that agreement in order to get things moving again. Mayor Miro Weinberger had requested in a letter late Friday that the council allow Sinex to build the foundation before he has a contract for the rest of the project. City councilors raised questions in interviews Monday about what the changes would mean for the project, and whether approving the changes would put the city at greater risk if the project were to fail. If Sinex ran out of money, would it be worse to have a foundation or an empty lot? And would a no vote — … [Read more...] about To Restart Construction, Burlington Amends City Place Agreement
