Formerly Hartford’s Bank of America – this striking skyscraper has been transformed for residential use with 590 tons of Studco steel.
Studco® have been appointed by American Masons & Building Supply Company to supply products for use in the construction and fit out. Specifically, Studco products include Drywall Studs, CrocStud® 20, CrocStud16 and various accessories.
The 26–story building is located at 777 Main Street, Hartford, Connecticut, with a long history of being the headquarters of various financial institutions. More recently, 777 Main Street has been recognized as the former Bank of America headquarters. With the asset being acquired by Becker & Becker Associates in March 2014, the property has since become a focal point of state and local efforts to revitalize Hartford’s central business district.

The $80 million re-development project 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 35,000 square feet of ground floor retail space. The redevelopment of 777 Main Street from vacant downtown office space into 285 apartments in the 26–story building is the largest of the efforts in Hartford to create more housing in the downtown area.
