PORTSMOUTH, N.H. (AP) — A company has released new plans for redeveloping a federal building near the Portsmouth waterfront.

The Portsmouth Herald reports Redgate/Kane has downsized its proposal for the McIntyre Federal Building property following backlash from the National Park Service on its size.

Redgate/Kane will drop its plan for a 5½-story mixed-use building next to the federal building, and it has reduced the size of another 5½-story building to 4½ stories.

Deputy City Manager Nancy Colbert Puff says the public benefits of the project will remain, including an indoor market space and a new covered walkway.

The city Historic District Commission will review the new plan during a meeting Wednesday evening.

The General Services Administration, which owns the property, says they will be out of the building by June 2019.
