Developer looks to build high-end apartment complex in West Hartford

A developer is proposing a 26-unit luxury apartment complex at New Britain Avenue and Berkshire Road, the second time such a plan has been put forward. This version includes two apartments set aside for workforce housing, and should be more acceptable to neighbors — and more attractive to the town — than the one that failed two years ago, developer Joe Calafiore said Friday. Calafiore’s development firm, 47 Pratt Street LLC, will present plans for The Residences at Berkshire Road to the town council on Nov. 10. He is seeking a zone change to allow multifamily housing on the site. If it’s approved, construction could start mid-year in 2021 and end around the summer of 2022, he said.
