Mohegan Sun Developments

Recommended Posts

That rendering from the Courant certainly makes this tower look like a 600 footer. I dont want to lose CT's tallest to the woods of SE CT, but I will say I love the design of the tower.

None of the bars in downtown Norwich are low class. There are bars that young people go to, and there are bars that older people go to. You could even do a mini pub-crawl, you can even get food at some of the bars, well into the night. There isn't a bar that rivals anything in a bigger city or the casinos, but they are not dives full of drunks. There is constant construction activity in downtown Norwich, new things are going on and opening up every month. Look into the redevelopment of the Wauregan Hotel, we have an Artspace just like Hartford. We have the Spirit of Broadway and Donald Oat for plays and shows. Our library is undergoing a total rehab, very few storefronts are empty. We are one of the poorest cities in the state, but we make do with what we have.

The Otis Library is in the middle of a total rennovation. The library is currently housed in a temp spot across Main Street. The new building should open around April. Otis is actually a private library run by a board of trustees, only part of its budget is from the City of Norwich. The Pequots actually built the first new building in downtown Norwich in years, it's called the Mercantile Exchange. They relocated some Foxwoods offices to the building. It has open spaces for retail and food if anyone is willing to step up to the plate.

mikel:

It CAN happen!! I mean I would love to see Hartford get a building like the Cutter Financial Building - it would have been the TALLEST BRICK BUILDING in the world! Think about that!!

Mikel, you sound to much as a anti-capitalist liberal. You want to ban people from SUVs, tell people what they can do with their land. With others on here, when I disagree with them -- we discuss issues. And no, it is NOT a Florida ideal -- good ideas are from all over.

This fancy link gives you a nice look at everything they are adding.

I think House of Blues is a great choice, but adding House of Blues, Margaritaville, 4 additional bars, 2 resturants to the Dubliner etc maked this a signifigant entertainment hub for the non gambler.

My wifes family is from Montville and occasionally have met her sister or an old friend for a drink there and I actually may enjoy doing that after this is built.

Kudos!

Hotel addition suspended :(

http://www.courant.com/business/hc-mohegan...0,5582142.story

The Mohegans are suspending the expansion, I am guessing because whomever was funding it is pulling out due to the financial markets problems.

House of Blues likely can not float any more debt at this time. The indians may be able to but its a bit risky without HOB.
