PORTLAND, Maine (AP) - Developers of a historic Portland property have unveiled new images of their plan, including brick facades, office space and a waterfront plaza.

Project developer CPB2 officially unveiled the plan on Wednesday, but excluded an industrial building.

The city’s Historic Preservation Board recommended preserving eight buildings, including a former railroad equipment manufacturer’s erecting shop.

But the Portland Press Herald reports the shop is missing from the rendering and its footprint is part of a public plaza.

The developer is slated to meet with officials at a Planning Board hearing on Sept. 8. The hearing will decide whether to designate the district as historic and vote on a recommendation to the City Council.

The Portland Co. began operating at the site in 1847 and ceased operating in 1982.
