    Officials have unveiled new plans to redevelop Burlington Town Center after making changes based on input from nearly 1,000 residents.

    The Burlington Free Press reports architects presented plans for the $200 million project at a public meeting Tuesday.

    The renovated mall would include new housing, office and retail space and a 90,000-square-foot park on the roof of the mall. The project includes 300,000-square-feet of housing, which would be built in a 14-story tower, if the city agrees to the zoning change that would be required.

    Mall owner Don Sinex says he dropped plans for a new hotel and convention center because there wasn't enough public support.

    City officials say the project remains in the early planning stages and will be subject to extensive review.
