BURLINGTON, Vt. — The developer of a Burlington, Vermont, mall says court delays are costing the project thousands of dollars.
The Free Press reports (http://bfpne.ws/2qrZhMT) that work on the Burlington Town Center has been stalled by an appeal filed by a group of people who oppose the project.
Don Sinex, the property owner, says the center is losing around $270,000 each month. Sinex is now asking the group to post a $25 million bond to offset damages he says he could suffer from delays.
A lawyer for the group says his clients believe the project is too big and that center bypassed a review in environmental court.
Sinex already has contracts with tenants like University of Vermont Medical Center. The developer says court delays are putting those deals in jeopardy.
