Construction for the apartment conversion of downtown Hartford’s former Bank of America skyscraper has commenced, with the total steel required for this project being 1.3 million lbs (589.67 tonnes).
The $80 million re-development project in Hartford, Connecticut’s central business district will see the prominent Hartford skyline structure being converted from a solely commercial space to a mixed-use residential property. The plan includes for twenty percent of the apartments to be set aside as affordable housing units for low-income residents. The project also includes an existing parking structure with approximately 249 spaces and approximately 35,000 square feet of ground floor retail space. The redevelopment of 777 Main Street from vacant downtown offi ce space into 285 apartments in the 26-storey building is the largest of the efforts in Hartford to create more housing in the downtown area.
