The mini-plaza would have 110,000 square feet of retail in two buildings. A Big Y would be in one building and the other building could have a bank, restaurant and other stores, O’Connell representatives have said. Supporters have cited the project’s 250 jobs, $400,000 a year in property tax revenue and revival of a dormant site. The site was formerly occupied by the Atlas Copco compressor factory, which closed in 2005.
