Construction drawings, a requirement under the Land Disposition Agreement, have landed in the Norwalk Redevelopment Agency from POKO Partners. Back in June, the planning committee of the Common Council questioned the timing and performance milestones of all redevelopment projects. The construction drawings keep the Wall Street Place project moving forward, and after a review by the agency, the next phase will involve the likely demolition of 61 Wall Street or the former Mechanics Bank building.
According to Redevelopment Commission chairman Emil Albanese, the project received the help from State Senator Bob Duff and Mayor Moccia to secure $5 million in state funding to move the project forward.
The planning committee will get a status update on this and all the redevelopment projects currently open Thursday night, room 231 7:30 pm.
And lo and behold, the meeting packet is now online. The minutes from the July meeting are a hoot.
