The clock is ticking for Burlington Town Center owner, Don Sinex. For some time now, Sinex has been working to redevelop the struggling downtown Burlington Mall. Sinex is seeking a zoning change to allow for a height increase which Sinex says is necessary to increase density to make the $200 million development viable.

Those in favor say the change is necessary to improve the city’s chronic housing shortage and will help create jobs. Stay tuned to see if the approximately 1,000,000 new sq ft of development will be taking place, 246,000 of which are dedicated to retail, 340,000 to office, 307,000 to residential and 355,000 to a new parking garage.

Several cited concerns about traffic while others lauded the convenience of a second location for the nation's busiest co-op.
