Council hears proposal to renovate six downtown buildings

November 29, 2016

During committee meetings Monday, two developers proposed to invest $33 million in downtown to renovate six buildings, including the Landmark Building at the corner of Main and Bowery Streets. The proposed development would include street and canal-level retail and restaurants as well as office space and 116 loft apartments. Planning Committee Chair Jeff Fusco asked Council to be prepared to vote on an ordinance approving the sale of the city-owned buildings to the developers next Monday. During the regular Council meeting, an administration proposal to purchase IT help desk-type services at below-market rates from the county was approved.
