Remedial work will start soon on a multi-phased project planned at the former Millard Fillmore Hospital site on Gates Circle. Developers plan to transform the West Side site into a retirement community, apartment complex and community center.

Plans unveiled Monday show much of the former Millard Fillmore Gates Circle Hospital being replaced with a new mixed-use, senior housing development.
