Brockton: Plans floated for building rehab

Brockton is awaiting engineering plans on how to save the  122-year-old Gardner Building.

Boston-based Trinity Financial is floating a 100-million dollar redevelopment project of apartments, business space and parking that includes preserving the building.

Brockton officials declared the former shoe factory unsafe, with a recommendation that it be torn down if the structure wasn’t shored up.

The developer, which wants to begin work this summer, has submitted preliminary plans to surround the four-story building with steel supports.

The state would give Trinity $600,000 in tax credits to preserve the brick exterior.
