CitySquare Pictures from the Chamber of Commerce

The Chamber of Commerce recently posted their pictures from last week’s CitySquare walkthrough.

Also, some thoughts on the project from the Adventures of a Worcesterite Tumbr:

recently there was an article in the Telegram and Gazette about the construction and how new streets will be made, and they described how the new street “Mercantile Street” which will run parallel to Worcester Center Boulevard is being constructed inside what is

All I can say is that I hope that the Unum Building and the Cancer Center that St. Vincent Hospital is building will be joined by a tall-ish tower. I would love to see something over 300’ in Worcester because currently the tallest building in the city is 288’ and 24 floors, I would love to see something near 30 floors, maybe a mixed use building with retail on the ground floor, offices in the middle, and then possibly a hotel or condos/apartments on the upper floors. Thats just me but I would love to see a sleek tower there that would re-define the downtown center of the city and bring more jobs to the city.

Of economic development, human rights, and appropriations

The Worcester City Council meets tomorrow night at 7 pm. You can find the agenda here.

A few items of interest:

  • it’s time once again for the quarterly economic development report. That means you can expect to hear about CitySquare, the area of the former Voke school/Gateway Park, and possibly South Worcester Industrial Park. Any guesses on if a councilor will mention stART at the Station in the discussion of Union Station?
  • As Mike has discussed, Father John Madden is (deservedly) receiving the Worcester Human Rights Commission’s Eleanor T. Hawley Award for outstanding contributions to the field of Human Rights.
  • As it is the City Manager’s week for the agenda (he and the Council alternate; have we mentioned that before?), there is a list of requests for appropriations (including three school buses)

I also have to mention the wording of the following item:

Recommend City Council Approval for Certain Actions Relative to CSX Corporation.

Details here.

Notre Dame to become part of CitySquare?

PB230624

The T&G reports this morning that Frederick H. Eppinger, head of lead CitySquare investor Hanover, wants to incorporate adjacent Notre Dame des Canadiens Catholic Church, which was closed by the diocese 2 years ago.

Mr. Eppinger said there are no plans to demolish the church structure, which was built in 1929. He said it will no longer serve as a church.

“It’s a pretty massive building,” he said. “There are a lot of possibilities. You have to be thoughtful as to how you use it. It has to go with the overall outlook of the projects. Right now there are a lot of moving pieces with that. We would want to remove the stained glass. It hasn’t been heated, so there could be some other issues.”

This is great news, but what will they use it for?
