WHITE RIVER JUNCTION, Vt. (AP) - A Vermont developer wants to build a new $8 million, 38,600-square-foot office building on the banks of the Connecticut River in White River Junction.
The proposal by DEW Properties of Williston would have tenants including the Department of Motor Vehicles, the Windsor County state's attorney's office and the U.S. Department of Veteran Affairs.
Town Manager Hunter Rieseberg says it would make for a "wonderful gateway to Vermont project."
The Valley News reports existing structures on the site would be demolished to make way for construction.
The project still needs to be voted on by town officials, but Planning Commission Chairman Bruce Riddle said he didn't see anything that would prevent the project from moving forward.
The developer hopes to begin work this fall.
