On Thursday evening, attendees at the Wards 2 & 3 Neighborhood Planning Assembly got a sneak peek of developers' plans for the buildings surrounding the infamous "pit," including what remains of the former Burlington Town Center mall and the now-vacant L.L. Bean building.

Concepts show a four-story, 15-unit apartment complex fronting Church Street and a 12-story hotel with about 240 rooms. The hotel entrance would be on a section of St. Paul Street that was severed from the city grid by the former mall. Developers have agreed to rebuild parts of St. Paul and Pine streets as part of the main CityPlace project.

Drawings also show two restaurants — one on the first floor and another on the roof — plus underground parking for about 100 cars, ground-level retail spaces and a pedestrian walkway connecting Church and St. Paul streets.
