When Renaissance skipped town, Bristol Hospital proposed to build a four-story 150,000-square-foot medical office building on the corner of Main Street and Riverside Ave.
With a seemingly positive approval from the public and city officials, the hospital’s expansion on the former mall site was on the fast track to become a reality back in May.
Since then the Hospital has asked for multiple extensions on their feasibility period.
The Bristol Press recently reported “During the winter months, the proposals for the hospital project and the rest of the development will be mired down in paperwork.”
The Hospital proposal could be a $50 million deal that would take up five acres on the former mall site.
The building could bring 250 or more employees downtown. It would also bring patients and others on a daily basis to the building.
The City will hold a special Council meeting this week to discuss another three-month extension requested by the Hospital.
Once the Hospital deal is approved, the city can divide the remaining parcel into smaller lots and provide new roads and city blocks.
The goal is to sell smaller parcels like an industrial park.

HARTFORD — A bill proposed by Connecticut Police Chiefs aims to prevent officer suicides. Under current law, officers who seek mental health treatment for stress or depression lose their gun permits, and as a result, their ability to work. Because of that stigma, they won’t seek help, which can put them at risk for suicide, hence this proposal that an exemption for police officers be added to the law.
