  1. This was really just a tremendous project. It turned a traffic sewer back into a city street and really has the area around the park poised for future development.
  2. I'm no so concerned with appearance. Npt Every building in a city needs to be a show stopper. Good cities are made up of cohesive blocks of functional buildings that interact well with the street and their surroundings. This pack of function and cohesion is one of the big things that has hurt and continues to hurt Hartford. This building is a big step in filling out the Front Street neighborhood in a solid functional way. That is all I need.
  3. http://touch.courant.com/#section/2225/article/p2p-79756898/ Boom. Let's change this thread to "in progress." This one has the potential to be a game changer. This is ground zero for downtown and should have a ripple effect once it's on-line.
  4. I saw this the other day. I'm surprised we haven't seen this reported anywhere else. https://twitter.com/crdact/status/410158913305067520
  5. Good call on the Governor's Footguard Building. Is it in use though?
  6. How about the Capewell Factory? Gives them a nice historic location and plenty of space.
  7. This area of town gets enough foot traffic on weekdays that retail should work here.
  8. Another big plus for this area is the Ford/Jewell Street reconfiguration that is in the works. Not only will there be a nice residential mass, but it will be a much better relationship with the park.
  9. Anyone know what this whole project means for that weird extension off the back along Pearl Street? I always thought that it would be nice to reconnect that little street behind this building that looks like it used to go all the way through to Asylum, but something would have to be done to reconfigure the part on the back of the BOA building in order to make it work.
  10. Great news. I have to admit that there were times I was skeptical that this would ever happen. This could really shape up to be a beautiful area of the city once everything is done.
  11. I went today. The theaters themselves are beautiful. We got there too late to eat at the restaurant, but that looked pretty good. It seems like they might be getting some of the kinks out still, but overall it looked very nice.
  12. This is all tremendous news, obviously. Now the attention needs to turn quickly to getting phase two built. It would be a shame if these great tenants are unable to make it because half the project is still incomplete, effectively cutting off Front St. from Main St., the Wadsworth, etc.
  13. http://www.courant.com/news/opinion/editorials/hc-ed-hartford-home-incentive-program-20120606,0,2301521.story We have been calling for a program like this forever. There is no reason this should have taken so long.
  14. This all sounds very promising. One thing that I don't quite understand (and this is probably why I'm not a real estate developer) is between all the subsidies this project has and the strong rental market downtown, how there aren't banks lining up to fund the next phase of the project. Seems like a no-brainer to me.
