Potential Downtown North developer hopes to break ground this year, even as Hartford’s legal battle over project continues

Randy Salvatore, of Stamford-based RMS Cos., asked the city council to give his company the green light to develop the first phase of Downtown North, a $46 million building with 200 mixed-income apartments, 11,000 square feet of retail and community space and a 250-space parking garage. He now says he could start construction by the end of year, assuming all legal issues are resolved, and complete the building by fall 2020. RSM would receive $8.5 million in state taxpayer-backed funding from the Capital Region Development Authority to help finance workforce or “affordable” housing, with at least 10 percent of the rentals priced for low- to moderate-income tenants.
