A recent article in the Hartford Courant reports the City’s $500 million vision for a new community to be called Bushnell South.

This new Hartford neighborhood will evolve from the existing barren landscape around The Bushnell Center.  The recently debuted Performing Arts, a potential high-rise apartment tower, public performance spaces, and tree-lined streets are all included in the concept (see rendering located to the left) for the project.

The master plan for “Bushnell South” — outlined at a community meeting at The Bushnell — includes 1,200 residential units — both rented and owned — restaurants, shops and entertainment venues.  Further information is located here.
