State expected to approve another $1.7 million to demolish New London high-rises

It brings the state’s contribution to $3.7 million, enough to cover the entire cost of the removal of hazardous material, demolition and cleanup of the 12-acre property on Crystal Avenue. The city has already chosen a contractor for the project, Stamford Wrecking Co., which started work earlier this month. The demolition is expected to begin in October. “This project will have long term significant economic impact for our city as we prepare an important commercial/industrial site for re-development,” Passero said. “We are grateful to Governor Lamont for proposing this investment in New London’s future and for his confidence in New London’s future.”
