BURLINGTON, Vt. (AP) - The designers of a proposed $200 million makeover of the Burlington Town Center say it will no longer be a mall.

Sherida Paulsen of PKSB Architects tells The Burlington Free Press (https://bfpne.ws/2epPHSh ) that “the mall is gone” and the new design calls for pedestrian-focused street retail.

The redevelopment includes apartments, retail and office spaces. Paulsen says entrances to those spaces will be along Church, Bank and Cherry streets, as well as newly restored St. Paul and Pine streets. She says the new design will invite pedestrians to make their way to the waterfront.

Mall owner Don Sinex says he’s hopeful voters will approve zoning changes and up to $21.8 million of tax increment financing on Nov. 8.

Sinex has said he hopes to break ground in early 2017.
