Danbury to take over Cartus building for its career academy: ‘Future of education’

The city announced major plans on Monday afternoon to purchase land and develop its highly anticipated career academy at the property where Cartus Corporation is located. After a resident vote, the city hopes to purchase the property for a still-unnamed sum, Esposito said. The addition of the career academy is Danbury’s main focus in plans to manage its overflowing student population. It’s unclear how much the land purchase and project changes will cost, but numbers are expected to be finalized on Wednesday, officials said. Significant estimates on HVAC and other utilities are not yet finalized, according to Antonio Iadarola, public works director. Developing the building into two schools is going to “take some effort and it’s going to take some investment,” Esposito acknowledged, “but in the end it’s going to be a shining star of Connecticut.”
