Developer Has Grand $300 Million Vision For Redeveloping New Haven Coliseum Site

Jun 6th, 2013 | By | Category: Featured Story

When the New Haven Coliseum was demolished in 2007, few felt much regret: many considered the building an eyesore, a failure of urban renewal. And besides, the venue hadn’t been open in five years.

Now, a Montreal-based developer hopes to bring people back to do more than park on the site with a $300 million-plus development of apartments, shops and restaurants, a hotel, offices and public gathering spaces.

The developer, Live Work Learn Play, will unveil its plans for the redevelopment to the public Thursday night. The plan is another component of the massive Downtown Crossing project, which aims to reconnect downtown New Haven with Union Station and Yale-New Haven Hospital, divided by the construction of the Route 34 connector nearly a half-century ago.
