A 10th Square?

New Haven is about to get a 10th square. Mayor John DeStefano Jr. announced Thursday that he has appointed Northland Investment Corp. to develop the 4.5-acre site of the former Veterans Memorial Coliseum, as part of a plan that city officials hope will turn a currently derelict segment of downtown into a bustling business and residential district in just a few years.

The Newton, Mass., company will pair up with Yale School of Architecture Dean Robert A.M. Stern ARC ‘65, whom University officials announced last week will be designing the school’s two new residential colleges.
