New Britain sells parcels for $65K, moving forward with second phase of Berkowitz building construction project to bring parking, more apartments

The city’s Common Council has agreed to sell a collection of city owned parcels to a developer, moving forward with the second phase of the Berkowitz building construction project. The Council passed a resolution last week to sell the city owned property at 634, 666, 676 and 686 Main St. for $65,000 to Douglas Bromfield of Berkowitz Block, LLC. The resolution was passed after it received a favorable recommendation from the committee on planning, zoning and housing to sell the property. The sale of the collection of parcels will kick off phase two of the Berkowitz Building project. The 100-year-old Berkowitz Building at 608 Main Street had been empty for years, before it was purchased by the developer. The second phase involves the development of the parcel leading up to Beaver Street. The mixed-use development is one of several redevelopment projects in the downtown area with proximity to CTFastrak, which will add to this city’s transit oriented development plan. Mayor Erin Stewart told the Herald Wednesday she was excited to see the next phase of the projects.
