City Council to vote on next phase of Burlington mall redevelopment

BURLINGTON, Vt. (WCAX) The City Council is set to vote on the next step in the redevelopment of Burlington's downtown mall.

Developer Don Sinex has big plans for the Burlington Town Center. He wants to build a 14-story tower and offer retail, restaurant and office space, along with apartments.

A new agreement calls for Sinex to make improvements to public infrastructure, pay for permits with cash and land, and try to employ Vermonters during and after construction.

The City Council votes later this month on whether to accept that agreement.
