Former New Haven Coliseum site to begin new life as ‘Square 10’

Fifteen years after the city imploded the New Haven Veterans Memorial Coliseum, construction of the first of three buildings in Phase 1 of the site’s redevelopment — to be known as “Square 10” — is about to begin, Mayor Justin Elicker and the developer announced Friday. The first building will consist of 200 apartments. “The transfer of the Coliseum site to LWLP New Haven LLC marks a major milestone in the Downtown Crossing infrastructure and development project that took patience, perseverance, and the right partner to reach,” Elicker said in the release. “We are thrilled at last to be moving forward with construction on this site, and to be a partner in a project that is transforming New Haven,” said Clay Fowler, founding partner of Spinnaker Real Estate Partners, based in Norwalk, and a principal of LWLP New Haven LLC. A groundbreaking event to kick off Phase 1A construction is scheduled for Nov. 10, officials said. A community meeting on the project has been tentatively set for Nov. 17.
