Progress On Lecount Square And Echo Bay

Download the “Findings Statement” for Lecount Square.

Lecount Square: The City Council has completed the lengthy environmental review for the Lecount Square project and issued a “findings statement” which authorizes the development to proceed. Lecount Square includes roughly one million square feet of office, hotel, retail, residential, and restaurant space, and is projected to generate substantial financial and job creation benefits for our community. The next procedural step is review and approval of a site plan by the Planning Board. The full text of the “findings statement” is available for download.

Echo Bay: The City and Forest City Residential, the designated developer for the Echo Bay waterfront, have reaffirmed our development partnership and confidence in the future of Echo Bay, despite the difficult economic climate. Our agreement extends for one year the window for producing a Draft Environmental Impact Statement and recommits Forest City to cover the City’s expenses through this process. At a time when many projects throughout the nation and region are being cancelled, this agreement is a positive sign for Echo Bay.
