An article authored by Kenneth R. Gosselin published in the Hartford Courant on June 17,2022, reports that the Capital Regional Development Authority (CRDA) will begin evaluating four proposals for the Performing Arts initiative on a two-acre parcel of barren expanse as a major redevelopment near the Bushnell Center.
It is reported that the proposals call for 250 to 350 units of housing, split between 80 percent market-rate and 20 percent affordable 25,000 square feet of commercial space, and various plans for parking garages. The vision is to create a stronger, walkable connection between Bushnell Park, the nearby Hartford Hospital district and Park Street, and extending to Colt Park.
