West Haven says more The Haven site buildings to come down

The fenced-off site of The Haven mall project has sat mostly dormant for years, with multiple buildings deteriorating across the street from neighborhood residences. Although members of the city’s delegation to the General Assembly have said it is apparent to them that the development will not happen, city officials like Mayor Nancy Rossi have said they are taking it one step at a time. This week, West Haven Corporation Counsel Lee Tiernan told the City Council Monday that Simon Group had paid for demolition to begin with the former site of Nick’s Luncheonette at 423 First Ave. “and work its way up.” However, he said that remediation concerns have stalled the demolition with the city’s building department. Tiernan said a $5 million state Department of Economic and Community Development grant intended to support that development may need to be “repurposed.”
