Hartford mixed-income housing project gets $5 million in state funding to build 50 more units

The redevelopment of the now-demolished Bowles Park apartments in Hartford’s Blue Hills neighborhood will enter its fourth stage with the help of $5 million in state funding. At the site of the old Bowles Park, a 410-unit state housing complex, sits Willow Creek, a mixed-income housing facility with several community amenities. The most recent round of the Community Investment Fund grant money will help develop 50 additional affordable rental units as well as infrastructure improvements. CIF plans to provide $875 million to eligible municipalities and nonprofits within them by 2030. The eligible municipalities are “historically underserved.” The Hartford Housing Authority owns the land occupied by the first 135 units and several acres of the site remain vacant for additional phases of construction. The developer for the project is Overlook Development and the property is managed by Imagineers.
