  1. I couldn't agree more about downtown being the ideal location for a Greater Hartford Casino in order to maximize potential ancillary development and activity. The more I think about the East Hartford location, the more I think it's not a terrible idea though. I fully support the efforts to get Rentschler Field and Silver Lane developed and think this certainly would help with those efforts. I think it would certainly compliment the stadium and that business would be pretty brisk on event dates.
  2. http://www.ctnow.com/business/hc-haar-downtown-north-candlewood-hotel-20150424,0,3714929.column So, let's go ahead and bring this back. Looks like it's now slated to be a Candlewood Suites.
  3. I'm all for a casino in Downtown Hartford. I think that is by far the best location for it in the Hartford region and that something at a comparable scale to what is being done in Springfield is what we really need to be looking at here. I think a good location would be the parking lots on Allyn St.. That would put it near the XL, the traditional club district, and Union station.
  4. I think it will end up being the River Hogs if these are in fact the choices to select from. Yard Goats would be pretty damn hilarious though.
  5. http://www.wfsb.com/video?clipId=11183513&autostart=true CRDA Head Mike Freimuth on Face the State yesterday. Sounds like the $250m rebuild is practically a done deal. Sweet! Let's hope the legislature gives the governor what he wants here after relatively modest debate.
  6. Looks like the most likely option is the $250M rebuilding of the arena. It certainly seems as if that makes the most sense if it will get it NHL/NBA ready and get all of the operating systems replaced. Pretty exciting to think that this is finally actually going to happen. We'll be ready if the NHL ever does become a real possibility.
  7. VoR, do you have any idea which parcel includes 220 High St. It must be either B,C, or D. Based on the design in that area, it seems like it wouldn't be to difficult to incorporate the historic building in the redevelopment. I think its important that Hartford try to save its historic structures, even if they are fairly nondescript.
  8. Thanks for the update, Suzanne. It would really be fantastic to get this project completed. We have our fingers crossed!
  9. http://www.chartweb.com/wp-content/uploads/NEW-Hartford-retail-ICSC.pdf New leasing brochure for Front Street including all of the retail space that will be available at the Lofts and UConn. It's exciting to see phase 1 pretty much all leased up and to imagine what the Lofts and UConn are going to add to the development. I imagine that a large UConn Co-op Bookstore will be featured prominently on the campus.
  10. I don't think housing can go above the 1st phase retail. It would be nice if it could, but I don't think it was built in such a way that it would be feasible at this point. I've accepted that.
  11. I'm very happy with those renderings. The fact that they are pushing this up against the Public Safety Complex is really going to reconnect this area and extend Downtown northward. This is a huge step forward for the city. Probably one of the most tranformative proposals in the last half century, given its location.
  12. Would be awesome if we land that Aer Lingus flight. Fingers crossed! Terminal B is about to be demolished, finally. Says new terminal B expected to begin construction in 2018. http://www.hartfordbusiness.com/article/20141114/NEWS01/141119947/1002
  13. I'm encouraged that CIL has demonstrated that they are comitted to getting this done. The fact that they are spending money and moving forward shows tht they are confident that the project will get done.
  14. The reality is that crime is not out of control in Hartford. It's obviously not low enough, but Hartford isn't the type of city where people get attacked ramdomly very often in any of its neighborhoods.
