    You're correct. 1 Bedroom apts start at $1400. I'm sure many of the 1 bedroom units on the middle and upper floors go for hundreds more.

    That rendering from the Courant certainly makes this tower look like a 600 footer. I dont want to lose CT's tallest to the woods of SE CT, but I will say I love the design of the tower.

    ^agree with both of you. The retail and entertainment venues opening up in the coming years are going to fill up most of the residential projects downtown, and may even generate more construction. Was just hoping more people would take a "chance" right off the bat.

    Yeah apparently the Metropolitan condo's aren't doing as well as we thought. I think there's like 14 or 15 leased out of the 50 available, and there have only been about 1 or 2 people signing up each month. I was hoping that building would be 75% leased by now. Hartford 21 seems to be having a little bit of trouble as well, but this is hard to judge considering it just opened, and many units are still under construction. I will say this though, I drive by H21 a lot at night on 84 East, and on Tuesday night at around 730pm (when most people are home) I counted about 10 units (out of about 65) on the west side of the building with their lights on.

    Cool find, thanks for sharing Tycoon. The videos are so neat...I still can't believe how massive those two mega casinos are going to be in a few years. They're already the two largest casino's in the world!

    Should be interesting to see what they have come up with considering Foxwoods is spending over a billion dollars in expansions.
  7. I've noticed the modular buildings before, but this is the first I've heard of a big @ss hole in the ground at the corner of Arch and Columbus. As long as something is happening, I'll take that as good news.

    Bring Back The Whale!!!

    Quite simply, it's the largest media market in the country w/o a professional sports team. In fact, there are many smaller markets behind us who have teams. Secondly, metro Hartford is one of the wealthiest areas in the country. Third, people here are still passionate about the Whalers, and we are also a basketball loving state. The only thing we don't have is an arena suitable for a major league franchise.
  9. This must be the first time in history a project breaks ground w/o releasing public renderings. A taxpayer funded project no less. If groundbreaking does indeed happen tomorrow, at least we know they'll be releasing the plans at the ceremony.
  10. So just to sum up...here's what we know about the "new" Front Street so far: -ESPN is committed to opening up some sort of attraction/entertainment/retail venue. -The first phase of the project will consist of lowrise buildings (3 to 6 stories) and will be similar to Pratt Street. -A movie theatre will be included. -Big name national retailers have shown interest (according to Nitkin)
  11. How about a skating rink/park in the 6 acre parcel known as "Front Sreet", and developing the south side of Arch street with some residential/retail.
  12. Crossing fingers... I just hope your sources are better than mine. Many months ago I was told by an insider that things were ready to take off and then nothing came of it. This whole project has been so confusing that I'm not sure anyone knows what's going on anymore.
  13. Again with your northern elitist attitude? Dude, you do realize we consider you a joke, don't you? That southern "bigot" just put you in your place, dispelled all your assumptions, and your comeback is to diss him based on where he lives...That's so incredibly lame.
