Trinity Project showing signs of unraveling

-A A +A
By Jennifer Garcia

Instead of the sprawling, retail-filled plans for Trinity Place, Los Alamos residents could end up with a big-box store and a parking lot; and that seems to be all right with at least one county councilor.

Wade Williams, a partner in The Boyer Company, along with Assistant County Administrator Anthony Mortillaro, Seth Kirshenberg of the Kutak Rock law firm and Kevin Wager of Jones Long LaSalle, were all in council chambers Thursday night for the special session, which revolved around discussion of Trinity Place.

Mortillaro began the discussion by talking about how retail development for the site has been in the works for the past 44 years. “Only in the last four years has any progress been made,” he said.

He went on to say that Los Alamos County has not been impacted by the recession and has a good income base. He also pointed out that construction for Trinity Place cannot begin until June 2010, after the county and school district buildings have been vacated and relocated to the Airport Basin Site.

Williams said working on the project has been an interesting journey. “The last few months have been quite a journey,” he said.

The biggest challenges in finalizing the deal and securing an anchor have been escalating costs, according to Williams.
