A Look At City Development Projects

Downtown housing, groundbreaking for delayed Steelpointe Harbor apartments and Honey Locust Square mix-use under construction in the East End are some of the projects highlighted by the Connecticut Post’s Brian Lockhart for developments to watch in 2024.

Next year could see progress on some significant economic developments in Connecticut’s largest city.

A couple long-delayed projects are finally expected to be completed — John Guedes’ downtown apartments and Anthony Stewart’s Honey Locust Square on the East End — while others either still in the concept stage or in limbo as to their status might move at least incrementally forward.

Guedes in early 2019 struck a deal with Mayor Joe Ganim’s administration and the City Council to purchase three then city-owned parcels on Congress and Main streets and receive a tax break to erect 92 market-rate units with ground floor retail.

After issues involving cleaning up contaminated soil and supply chain problems, Guedes on Friday said, “We should be starting occupancy by March, April. If you go by you’ll see the outside is coming to completion. Probably half the apartments are ready.”
