Norman Roth, principal broker at University Hill Realty said, “Having such an exciting new redevelopment in what is without doubt the busiest part of the city is sure to be a great boon to all the existing businesses in the area and we are also looking forward to all the new enterprises that will be drawn to the neighborhood to offer more in the way of retail, restaurants and services.  It is a genuine pleasure to see this project come to fruition and to see the continuing interest we have in more projects from property owners and developers, both local, and from out of town. I am sure this development, and the others to come will be a big part of the engine that will help the city continue to grow and become even more vital.”
