  1. I was listening to sports talk on 1080 last night and Solomon was on. He mentioned that his team's player development contract with the twins expires at the end of this season. What's also interesting is that the team that has the same contract with the twins aaa affiliate also expires this year. Combine that with all luca brasi's great observations and I really do think a aaa team will play in the hartford stadium in'16.
  2. Looks like there's construction paper on the door and windows of one of H21's store fronts on Trumbull. Anyone know what's going in?
  3. If you go to the leasing company's website, the Front Street rendering is different and the posting claims that the project is 57% leased. Check it out (Front Street is on the 3rd page of listings)... http://www.gvawilliams.com/ctwclistings.xml
  4. Nitkin didn't even develop Somerset Square. He bought it after it was built.
  5. If you look at Nitkin's website the only retail projects he has in his portfolio are strip malls and office parks. I didn't see one mixed use project such as what Front Street was supposed to be. Was he even qualified to tackle Front Street in its initial design concept? With the state kicking in so much free money to Nitkin to make this project viable, you would think the state would have written the contract so that they would have veto power as to what is ultimately built there.
  6. Public notice in the Courant today that indicates the environmental study for this project was completed with no negative findings. Will the DOT FINALLY get off their arse and make this happen?
  7. Like I said, give it to the Italians... So where is ESPN? Officials of the Bristol-based sports media giant say they continue to review their options at Front Street, the housing, retail and entertainment district of Adriaen
  8. This may be a very simple view, but to me it makes a lot of sense. I propose that two things happen in downtown: Build Front Street and give it to the Italians Take the area west of the XL Center and convert it into a mixed use lifestyle center with outlet stores at the street level and apartments/condos and office space above Little Italy is fading fast. It's too secluded from downtown and many of Italians are fleeing Franklin for the burbs. Every great city has a little Italy. Build Front Street and entice the Italians to move back. After all, Front Street used to be belong to th
  9. Good vision, but.... $4 Billion - it's going to take a little more than a powerball jackpot to make that happen.

  11. Does anyone find it a bit odd/troubling that if you logon to HB Nitkin's website (hbnitkin.com) and go to either "portfolio" or "space available" there is nothing mentioned of Front Street? WTF?
