The February 2, 2021 edition of We-Ha.com reports that construction of West Hartford’s newest transit-oriented project – a $20 million mixed-use, mixed-income, multi-family residential and retail development – is set to begin in February 2021 with completion planned for May 2022.
George Howell, CEO of the West Hartford Housing Authority and corporate secretary of Trout Brook Realty Advisors, said the 540 New Park development will have impact beyond the New Park Avenue corridor, and “will serve as an economic catalyst for the area, not only providing new customers for area restaurants, stores and businesses but also encouraging further investment and development in Elmwood.”
“West Hartford is committed to providing a variety of housing options for our residents and 540 New Park is just the latest example of a new, quality product that is financially accessible to our hardest working residents,” West Hartford Mayor Shari Cantor said. “This is exciting news, especially during these challenging times.”
Amenta Emma’s design for 540 New Park, as well as 616 New Park – the first transit-oriented development on the CTfastrak line – combines the area’s industrial roots with a modern look that creates a statement for the town.
