New Downtown Redevelopment Plan Unveiled, Proposal Less Ambitious & Realistic

Preliminary Master Plan

The Preliminary Master Plan for the former mall site was unveiled at a public workshop on Thursday, March 9, 2017.

The Courant reported “Consultants on Thursday evening unveiled maps and drawings that show the 15-acre parcel divided into clusters of buildings with extensive sidewalks, tree-lined bike lanes and small plazas.”

The Press reported “The plan showed the general layout of roadways, buildings, public spaces and parking areas. It also divides the site into smaller parcels for development.”

The light blue and grey sections show where the Hospital will build their medical complex.

The parcel is the largest piece of the former mall site.

Bristol Hospital is still planning to build a four-story 100,000-square-foot medical office building 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 Hartford Courant reported that the Hospital would look to build in partnership with a developer that would create first-floor retail that may include a pharmacy, restaurant and other stores.

With Bristol Hospital on the verge of buying part of the sprawling vacant lot for a medical office and lab complex, the city is eager to get the remaining acreage ready for building.

On Monday, March 13th, at 6:30pm, the City Council will hold a special meeting to discuss and possibly approve the proposal including the Hospital deal.

The public is encouraged to attend.
