The rest of the $3.5 million will be spent offsetting “the costs of redevelopment” and encouraging retail occupancy, according to a briefing for City Council members.

Phase 1 of Trinity Groves, 80,000 square feet of restaurant space, Four Corners Brewery and an event space, cost about $42 million and were paid for mostly with the owners’ money. Phase II is expected to cost about $9.9 million and could be finished by June 2015.
