Hearing set on controversial West Hartford apartment complex

West Hartford zoning officials are scheduled to hear from the public at 6 p.m. today about a controversial proposed 26-unit apartment complex planned for New Britain Avenue and Berkshire Road. Developer Joseph Calafiore has twice asked for rezoning of the 1.7-acre parcel at the northeast corner of the two streets to allow for the complex but has faced neighborhood pushback due to density, noise and traffic concerns. Under the new plan, the complex would consist of two eight-unit buildings along Berkshire Road and a third 10-unit building on New Britain Avenue. Two of the one-bedrooms apartments would be deed-restricted to be rented only to those earning under 80% of the area median income.
