43-unit, mixed-use apartment development to help stitch a void north of Hartford’s downtown

Bronin, Gov. Ned Lamont and other dignitaries gathered in the rear lot of a long-shuttered brick building off the northern tip of Ann Uccello Street to celebrate the grant. It will help pay for a $17.5 million project adding 43 apartments and near 8,000 square feet of retail space in three buildings, helping to reforge a connection of the downtown to the Clay Arsenal Neighborhood, North Main Street and Albany Avenue. The $6.5 million state grant was first announced earlier this year, part of a $45 million in allocation to projects in various communities through the new CT Communities Grant. State officials expect to spend up to $100 million over five years through the program, helping realize projects that increase the vibrancy of neighborhoods, especially in urban centers. The next application round opens in August.
