$250-$3500M Coliseum Site Project Gives Good First Impression In The Hill
(6/7/2013) New Haven Independent - About 75 people from all around town gathered in the cafeteria of the Hill Central School Thursday night to hear the pitch of the Montreal-based LiveWorkLearnPlay team for how to turn the four and a half acre graveyard of the old New Haven Coliseum (now a parking lot) into a future “destination” as well as a “gateway.”
The builders hope to construct 524 residences in five-to-six story mixed income buildings with retail all along the landscaped streets; a distinctive hotel rising on the corner of MLK Boulevard and Orange Street that would run along Orange across the Connector into the Hill; an office tower on State Street; a fitness center; a public square vibrant with community-planned events; and a"laneway” with spots for 35 “best of the best” entrepreneurial, unique, carefully screened New Haven businesses.
