From Brian Lockhart, CT Post:
The city has placed the former Harding High School property on the market, and several officials said neighbor Bridgeport Hospital aims to submit an offer to expand in some capacity onto the site.
“They’ve always said they wanted it,” said state Rep. Andre Baker who, with other community leaders from that section of town, has been part of behind-the-scenes discussions about the future of the shuttered 200,000-square-foot school and 8 acres of land at 1734 Central Ave. in the shadow of the medical campus.
“They’ve been meeting with the community (and) the city’s been in discussion with the hospital,” said City Councilman Ernie Newton.
He, Baker and others also said that they have been talking to hospital representatives about including a housing component in any deal.
