As part of the Downtown Crossing project, Winstanley is proposing a 300,000 to 400,000 s.f. medical research building on College street next to the Air Rights garage. This is the first building in the several new city blocks being created by the removal of the Route 34 expressway.

Winstanley is also expanding Science Park which has been very sucessful.

Also the city is just begining talks with a company called Live Work Learn Play on the redevelopment of the New Haven Coliseum site between Orange Street, North Frontage Road, State Street and George Street.

For a city the size of New Haven to have so much going on in these economic times is amazing. I believe you will see a much improved city over the next several years. Jay

Agreed. Out of all the cities in CT, New Haven is the most likely to see a renaissance in the next 5 years. It only helps the entire state.

They need skyscrapers in New Haven , the Skyline should make a statement in the region. More of the Waterfront needs to be opened up , and Streetcar / Light Rail network connecting Downtown with North , West and East Haven.

Good stuff in New Haven. We should also give a shout out to Stamford- Harbor Point is the biggest commercial construction project on the east coast right now.

But they do have a skyscraper, and I know they're not all that tall... I'm sure one day they will built something taller than CityPlace the one in Hartford.

Whoops your right...

High Rise , 100-199m/300-649ft
Skyscraper , 200-299m/650-999ft
Supertall , 300m/1,000 ft

So New Haven could use 1 supertall , 9 skyscrapers , 10 high rises
