Hartford seeks redevelopment proposals for key Downtown North parcels

The city this month issued a request for redevelopment proposals for the vacant Arrowhead Building at 1355 Main St. and three vacant adjacent land parcels that together act as the tip of the arrowhead-shaped Salvin Block, which is bordered by Chapel, High, Pleasant and Main streets. RMS Cos. broke ground last fall on the first phase of its $250 million planned redevelopment around the park, which will include 270 apartments, 11,000 square feet of retail space and a parking garage located along the right field side of the ballpark. The Arrowhead redevelopment site lies to the west, approximately one block behind home plate. The city is working on the effort with Connecticut Main Street Center, which issued development recommendations for the area several years ago. Responses to the two recent RFPs are due in late February and March, respectively.
