East Hartford’s first new apartment complex in 50 years key piece to revitalization plan

Local officials have approved an $81 million project that Mayor Mike Walsh says would be the first apartment complex built in town in nearly 50 years. The town’s Planning and Zoning Commission approved the project at its meeting on Wednesday. Plans call for the apartment complex — Concourse Park — to include a pool, dog park and other amenities, and officials hope the development will help bring more people to the town and the surrounding area. The project will create 406 temporary construction jobs and will bring an annual economic impact of $14.1 million to the community, according to the town’s website. Concourse Park will be developed by Jasko Development and Zelman Real Estate. It will include 470 units, Brian Zelman, of Zelman Real Estate, said at an August planning and zoning commission meeting.
