New Britain officials unveil renderings for newest downtown development

City officials unveiled the renderings for a new development downtown. Stewart unveiled the first of the three renderings, which displayed the façade of the apartment building. “This building will compliment The Brit. We want buildings that will complement each other and not to be in competition with each other,” said Amit Lakhotia, developer. “So if people can’t find an apartment at the Brit they can come here and vice versa. So there are options for people and they are similar style apartments with a similar feel to it.” Lakhotia and George Taweh, of TLong Construction LLC, have been involved in many projects in town. Lakhotia was approved for a $4 million Community Challenge Grant. This will be put toward the $17.5 million project. Demolition inside is already complete and Lakhotia says they are now waiting on the permit to increase the foundation for the addition of the two floors. “Once we get that we should be able to start construction next month,” he added. The project is estimated to be completed in early 2024.
