Hearing set for $30 million Brainerd Place construction details on Elmcrest site

The commission is scheduled hold a public hearing on the site plan for the proposed $30 million mixed-use development during a meeting beginning at 7 p.m. in the Mary Flood Room of the Portland Public Library. Brookfield-based BRT proposes to construct some 240 studio, one-, and two-bedroom rental units, as well as various retail and commercial buildings on the 14.7-acre former hospital property. The commission is not expected to make a decision Thursday. Given the interest the proposal has attracted through its two-year journey to this point, it is likely the hearing will be continued for at least one more meeting.
