Rhode Island development exec is key player in West Hartford UConn campus redevelopment

Domenic Carpionato has been named project manager for the ownership group that is heading the highly-anticipated and closely-watched project, officials confirmed. Carpionato Group is not the buyer or developer of the West Hartford property, officials said, but Domenic Carpionato will play a key role in any redevelopment efforts, although there are currently no plans for the property. UConn’s former West Hartford campus, which years ago was purchased by a fintech company that planned to establish a major tech campus there but later abandoned the plans, was purchased late last year for $2.75 million by West Hartford 1 LLC. The 58-acre property at 1700 and 1800 Asylum Ave. was put up for sale in 2020 after Ideanomics pulled out of a planned $400-million development for the site.
