Significant progress is being made on two development projects in the West Hartford Center area, and Mike Mahoney, owner of West Hartford-based commercial real estate company RLM Co, took a look from above and shared some drone images he captured on July 13.
Construction has been underway for months at the site of The Byline, at 920-924 Farmington Avenue, which is being developed by Brian Zelman, Avner Krohn, and Richard and Zach Korris. The mixed-use development will include 48 apartments, and 10,000 square feet of commercial space on the ground floor. Two of the units will be deed-restricted as affordable housing for those earning 80% of the area mean income (AMI).
Demolition got underway this spring of the former Children’s Museum at 950 Trout Brook Drive. That parcel was purchased from Kingswood Oxford by Continental Properties, and will be developed as 172 luxury apartment units, plus amenities. Prior to the commencement of demolition, in April the tail of the iconic Conny the whale, which had been part of the museum’s campus since the mid-1970s, was successfully severed and removed to storage. Once permits have been finalized, plans are to install the tail across the street along the Trout Brook Greenway.
