BURLINGTON, Vt. (WCAX) - The Burlington City Council voted unanimously Tuesday night on an amended agreement, giving the green light to finally begin construction of CityPlace.
The new amended agreement comes after the project was taken over last year by a three-person, local development team -- Dave Farrington, Scott Ireland, and Al Senecal. The developers can now pick up their foundation permit and begin work as soon as next week.
The project has been plagued for over a decade by design changes, financing trouble, legal wrangling, and a rotating cast of developers. The project is currently slated to include 420 housing units, 80 of them affordable, more than 400 parking spaces, and 40,000 square feet of retail and restaurant space. In addition to resolving the empty pit in the heart of downtown Burlington, the project will also reconnect Pine and St. Paul Streets.
The project is expected to be completed by the fall of 2025.
