    Former New Haven Coliseum Site

    In September 2011, the City of New Haven entered into a Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) with Live, Work, Learn, Play (LWLP) and Newman Architects as the preferred development team for the former Coliseum site. The City’s objective is to redevelop the 4.5 acre former Coliseum site into a vibrant mixed-use neighborhood that helps connect and grow this section of the City. LWLP was selected through an RFQ process involving City officials and community members (Board of Aldermen, City Plan Commission, and Town Green Special Services). LWLP has begun predevelopment work with the goal of negotiating a Development Agreement and Land Disposition Agreement. During this predevelopment period, LWLP is conducting various market studies for potential uses and developing concept plans for development approaches that look at shared parking and loading opportunities. They will also host a number of workshops to get community input.
