James McHugh Construction Co. has been selected as the design-build contractor, with Environmental Systems Design, Inc., as lead architect/engineer, Archideas the consulting architect and CS Associates, Inc. as structural engineer.
The development team has set a goal of fall 2010 to begin construction, with a potential completion date of late 2011.
