Mayor Miro Weinberger Responds to Updated Proposal for CityPlace Burlington

Burlington, VT – Tonight, Brookfield Properties, the managing partner of CityPlace Burlington, presented an updated proposal for the project to the City Council. In response, Mayor Miro Weinberger released the following statement:

“The developers of the CityPlace project took an important step forward tonight. Brookfield has met the demands in my September 27 letter, and appears to have resolved internal disagreements that have delayed the project. The revised plans that Brookfield presented would achieve all of the major goals that the City has held for this site from the beginning, including restoring lost public streets, creating hundreds of much needed new homes and downtown jobs, and generating substantial new public revenues. While I welcome this overdue progress, Brookfield still has substantial work to complete before the end of this year to preserve the project, and get this effort to fix a long-troubled part of the downtown back on track."
