Hello everyone, I've been hearing about Waterfront development in Burlington for years now. Does anyone have information on the status of progress of the project? The last time I was in town i didnt see any development going on.

I guess the Riverview Restaurant will be changing its name.

I was gonna say, because we had brunch at the Riverview and I thought "There's no view of the river anymore!" Maybe upstairs on the second floor, but they were watching the Eagles game up there and were very noisy.

It's going to be five or six stories tall. While I like the idea of using vacant land, the town is destroying a popular restaurant.

I'm sure the new apartment buildings will bring in more money. I guess I've seen too many old things die because of redevelopment.

My old neighborhood got 'dozed for a new school. It was OK for a while, then failed. No one who moved into the new apartments near the school cared about the area. The homes, senior highrise, and deficient shopping district all failed.

It wasn't organic growth. An entire shopping district was razed. Most of those business never came back. My childhood neighborhood became a HUD development zone. Things got worse rather than better.

I think that the influx of residents to the area paying market rent (eg: read, people with jobs) will help fill all the empty seats in the restaurant and help keep it alive.

It will ruin burlington city's waterfront.
