PC Construction Selected as Construction Manager for $200+ Million Burlington Town Center Redevelopment Project
December 7, 2016 by Crystal DelleChiaie, Senior Marketing and Public Relations Specialist
Devonwood Investors LLC, owner and developer of the Burlington Town Center (BTC), today announced that it has retained PC Construction as the general contractor and construction manager for the Burlington Town Center redevelopment project.
Following a favorable City-wide vote on November 8, 2016 to affirm new zoning standards for a portion of the downtown that includes the Burlington Town Center, the redevelopment project has moved quickly to finalizing retention of its development team and to complete work required for City permitting. Construction is expected to commence in the first half of 2017.
“The Burlington Town Center project is all about revitalizing the marketplace and supporting the local economy through new housing, retail and more, so it’s a natural fit to partner with PC Construction and so many other Vermont firms who represent the very best in construction, engineering, landscaping and architecture,” said Don Sinex, principal of Devonwood Investors LLC. “These talented professionals will assist in bringing this project to reality and a future for Burlington that promises jobs, economic growth, additional tax revenue, a reconnected City, and a more vibrant Downtown Burlington. Our shared vision of a project that is environmentally sound, where people can live, work, shop and socialize is an important step closer with this announcement.”
“PC Construction’s 1,200 employee-owners are proud to be part of the Burlington Town Center project,” said Jay Fayette, senior vice president of PC Construction. “We’ve worked closely with Don Sinex and the Devonwood team to help develop the plans to date and are thrilled to see their vision become reality for the City of Burlington. We will continue to work closely with local design firms, key Vermont subcontractors and the City of Burlington to ensure that this project brings great opportunity to the business community, while keeping our neighbors and visitors safe and sound during construction work.”
The project’s first phase will eliminate the outdated indoor mall currently onsite and create a connected, vibrant community center. This one-million-square-foot mixed-use project includes 274 apartments, retail space, office space, two new public streets, an 800-car parking structure and many other community benefits, while creating jobs, and establishing a vibrant core in Burlington’s downtown.
