Based on news coverage I've seen over several years, the redevelopment plan always has called for demolishing all the buildings, including the one with the towers on the roof, except the office building at the front of the site (about 40 acres total).The plans, calling for a shopping mall, did go into limbo when the economy crashed, but the property was sold earlier this year to O'Connell, based in Holyoke, a major developer in the area. According to a Springfield Republican article in April, O'Connell said it also plans demolition (supposedly "this year") of all but the office building and construction of a mall. A couple weeks ago, the Republican reported that one of the wanna-be casino developers in Massachusetts is considering the Westinghouse site.
