The city, Norwalk NAACP and General Growth Properties aim to engage women and minority-owned businesses in the construction of The SoNo Collection. GGP, a Chicago-based mall developer, broke ground in August on the 728,000-square-foot upscale regional shopping center off West Avenue and Interstate 95. The company had targeted October 2019 for completion. Under its development agreement with the city and Norwalk Redevelopment Agency, GGP must make a good faith effort to see that at least 10 percent of the construction dollars go toward Disadvantaged Business Enterprises. That translates to about $29.9 million.
