$300 million Development Planned for Coliseum Site

New Haven - June 2013 - A Montreal based developer, Live Learn Work Play, presented plans for the former New Haven Coliseum site for a mixed use development encompassing over 1 million square feet.  The 4.5 acre site which borders Orange Street and the Route 34 corridor shows plans for 524 apartment units, a 200,000 s/f office building, 75,000 s/f of retail space and a 160 room hotel, along with public gather places.  The site will help knit the downtown back towards Union Station, which accesses Metro North Railroad.  

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.

The developer has a preferred developer status with the city and is negotiating a contract to purchase the site.  The development will be key project to continue the private development already occurring a block away encompassing a new 400,000 s/f headquarters office and research facility for Alexion Pharmacuticals.  Also underway is the raising of the Route 34 corridor into two boulevards helping link downtown with the Yale Medical campus and the train station.
