Construction phase of Brooks House redevelopment set to begin

first_imgBob Stevens, Drew Richards, Ben Taggard, Peter Richards, and Craig Miskovich announced Tuesday that they have completed the closing process and are set to move forward with the next phase of the Brooks House redevelopment. Construction on the landmark building in downtown Brattleboro will begin before the end of July and should take approximately one year. ‘It was a long, difficult process to put together the financing for this project and here we are, nearly a year and a half later, and we’re finally ready for construction,’said Miskovich.  To finance the $24 million project, the investment group put together a complex package that includes common equity, senior and subordinated debt, private loans, preferred equity, a Community Development Block Grant, a town loan, and Historic and New Market tax credits, in addition to State funding for fit up for the colleges.Inside the building, a large ground-floor atrium will serve as the main entrance from Main Street and Harmony Lot, and will open inside onto the retail businesses in the building. ‘Our design preserves many of the historic features that define the building, and restores some others, like the original storefront layout,’said Bob Stevens.  Stevens & Associates is providing architecture and engineering services for the project and Breadloaf Construction of Middlebury, Vermont, will serve as the construction manager.‘We’re excited to see the Brooks House begin to add to the vitality of downtown Brattleboro.  With tenants like The Community College of Vermont, Vermont Technical College, Duo restaurant, and Oak Meadow School, we have a lot to look forward to as a community.  Our intent is to rebuild the Brooks House so that it brings much more activity downtown than it did before the fire,’commented Ben Taggard.  The building has space for retail, restaurants, and offices, as well as one- and two-bedroom apartments. ‘To date, the response from prospective tenants has been remarkable and we’ve received commitments to occupy more than 70% of the building.  It was a challenge to get commitments for a shell of a building that we didn’t own, but people are excited about the potential.  We are committed to finding a mix of tenants that makes for a stronger downtown,’said Drew Richards.‘The Brooks House redevelopment effort has benefited from a great deal of support both within and beyond our community, starting with Governor Shumlin’s vision for a downtown campus for the Colleges,’commented Pete Richards.For more information on the Brooks House go to www.brookshouse.com(link is external)last_img read more

HS Hockey: Kenston Bombers Top Strongsville Mustangs 2-1 in Overtime at The Pond

first_imgBy Anthony Alandt CHAGRIN FALLS, OHIO – The Kenston Bombers won a hard-fought hockey match in overtime 2-1 against the Strongsville Mustangs Sunday evening. The two teams faced off for the second time in as many days, as Strongsville pulled out the 4-2 win Saturday night over the Bombers.Strongsville jumped out to an early 1-0 lead after a goal by sophomore forward Kyle Czworkowski a little more than two minutes into the game. Kenston was unable to counter with a goal of their own, but maintained possession of the puck throughout the majority of the first 15 minutes and made the Mustang defense work.From the initial puck drop to the buzzer signaling the end of the first period, the Bombers kept their foot firmly on the gas pedal. Kenston’s aggressive approach in the first period was outmatched by senior goalie Luke Bell, who kept Kenston scoreless and amassed 12 saves.When the Mustangs were able to flip possession, they took advantage of their opportunities and shot a flurry of times at Kenston goalie Jason Hildebran, who saved 20 of the 21 shots at him.Junior Valentino Carriero was able to tie up the game for the Bombers at 1 after 1:33 of play in the second period off an assist from senior Tanner Mulhern. Strongsville had many more attempts to score in the second period, but Hildebran staved off every chance with impeccable blocking and saves. Both power play opportunities that came in the second period were unable to be capitalized on, as neither squad could muster a goal while it was 5 on 4. Bell, the goalie for Strongsville, finished by saving 27 of 29 shots on goal.Regulation ended with the score at 1-1 after a very defensive-heavy third period. Both the Mustangs and the Bombers had trouble getting anything to materialize and when they found some path to the goal, neither team was able to slip one by the goalies.With all the fans in attendance on their feet and the clock ticking down towards 4 minutes in the overtime, Carriero came through with his second goal of the game, winning it for the Bombers. Carriero picked up his 32nd and 33rd goal of the season, while Mulhern added his 9th assist of the year.Kenston remains atop the Red Central division as they improve to 6-1 in league play. They face off next at Rocky River on Friday. Strongsville falls to 5-3 in league play and stay behind the Bombers in second place in the Red Central division. The Mustangs will play at Benedictine on Friday for their next game. Related TopicsKenston BombersStrongsville Mustangs NEO HS Stafflast_img read more

The worst Cristiano Ronaldo since 2010-11

first_img His next test in La Liga will be against rivals Atletico, at the Vicente Calderon next weekend. Sport EN Cristiano Ronaldo did not score for Real Madrid in the 0-0 draw with Malaga and the Portuguese hasn’t found the net in four of the five La Liga games this season. He still has five goals, but all of them came in a 6-0 win over a limp Espanyol side at the Cornella El Prat.  Against Malaga he tried to score time and time again, but could not. His discontent at being unable to beat Kameni was tangible. He tried to score an incredible 14 times, without success.  27/09/2015center_img CEST Upd. at 14:17 Against Sporting, Granada, Athletic and Malaga he has been incapable of finding the net. His run reminds us of the 2010-11 season where he had his worst goalscoring start as a player of Madrid, scoring three times in six weeks of La Liga. last_img read more

CWC 2019: Kevin Pietersen vouches for the inclusion of Vijay Shankar in the line-up

Powered by Firework Vijay Shankar has been a polarising figure for the fans and critics alike after a series of sub-par performances. The all-rounder was slotted in the line-up after Shikhar Dhawan’s tournament came to a premature end owing to a hairline fracture. Advertisement Image Courtesy: Deccan ChronicleThe all-rounder’s World Cup journey has been off to a rough start. After bagging a wicket off his very first ball, things have gone only downhill for Shankar. The right-arm medium pacer is yet to deliver a solid outing in the crucial No.4 position for the Men In Blue. Shankar could only manage a couple of patchy innings’ against Afghanistan and West Indies.While many have voiced their opinion about replacing Shankar off the line-up with either Dinesh Karthik or Rishabh Pant, Kevin Pietersen is not one of them as he pleaded Virat Kohli and Ravi Shastri to back the 28-year-old in a tweet. He said:Advertisement “Dear Virat and Ravi (Shastri) — please don’t drop Vijay Shankar,” Pietersen said in a tweet on Saturday. “I think he’s coming into his own and would potentially win you tomorrow’s game.”Pietersen also voiced his concern about Pant being thrown away right into the World Cup mix. He added:Advertisement “Don’t think about Pant. He needs another three weeks preparation before I think he can get into your World Cup side.”Check out the tweet below:Read Also:  Advertisementlast_img read more
