There Were Talks On New City Hall Development Near Peel Plaza

Discussions were held about development of a new City Hall near Peel Plaza around the Synagogue which would be part of a 55 thousand square foot mixed development.

The talks were discontinued because the unnamed developer wanted everything wrapped up before the end of last October so he could avoid the condition of the buildings he wanted from deteriorating further.

The city felt that was too much of a rush because Common Council hadn't even established any criteria for future discussions about a new City Hall. 

Meantime, there is renewed interest on the part of a group of local investors in redeveloping the so called jellybean buildings along Wellington Row and perhaps two other buildings at the corner on Union Street.
