540 New Park
West Hartford, Connecticut
Amenta Emma was selected by Trout Brook Realty Advisors, a non-profit developer for the West Hartford Housing Authority (WHHA), to design a 52-unit mixed-use building on a parcel known as 540 New Park Avenue. The project is a Transit Oriented Design, located adjacent to the CT Fastrak Busway. The project includes the demolition of an existing structure and the development of 1,500 square feet of retail space on the ground floor. The one- and two-bedroom units will be priced both at market rate and at rates attractive to a workforce earning at or below 60 percent of the area’s median income. Several units will be designated as supportive housing for veterans. The project is scheduled for a 2021 occupancy.
