South Burlington OKs new building at UMall

Posted: Updated:
SOUTH BURLINGTON, Vt. -

The South Burlington City Council has OK'd a new building at the University Mall, which is expected to settle a lawsuit.

The UMall wants to tear down a two-story building on Dorset Street and replace it with a 6,000-square-foot building that would house a bank and retail space. But under the city's interim zoning rules, the City Council rejected the proposal, prompting the mall owners to sue.

This week, the City Council reversed course, voting unanimously in favor of the project.

"One is that it asked the court to approve a revised plan for the new building at the University Mall. And two, it sets out a process to allow in the next couple of months all of the appeals and lawsuits to be ended," South Burlington City Planner Paul Connor said.

UMall officials declined to comment on the agreement with the city until a formal settlement of the lawsuit.

The project still need final approval from the city's development review board before construction can move forward.
