The Longmont City Council, acting as the city’s urban renewal authority, saw colorful renderings of how a development team would like to transform the graffiti-covered, contaminated Sugar Mill property into a vibrant destination.
Charlie Woolley, who is the founding principal and president of St. Charles Town Company, delivered Tuesday’s presentation on behalf of the development team.
The concept plan for the site includes more than 2,000 residential units along with 250,000 square feet of commercial space that may include a hotel, retail and a performing arts center, Woolley said.
“We’re here to ask you to engage with us in a public-private partnership to save the Sugar Mill and make a unique Longmont-centered place,” Woolley said. “We’re making a bold declaration that we’re all engaged in being visionaries.”
