A ribbon cutting was held Thursday afternoon at the newly-renovated apartment complex in West Hartford.
Mayor Shari Cantor, members of the Town Council and board members from Trout Brook Realty Advisors and the West Hartford Housing authority celebrated the completion of the $2.5 million rehabilitation and renovation of the Elm Grove Apartments on Thursday.
Located at 11 Grove St. in the Elmwood section of West Hartford, the project consisted of renovations of 40 units of housing for seniors. Prior to the renovation, most units were studio apartments. Today, all units are one-bedroom apartments.
The renovation project was also self-financed with no participation from either state of federal government sources.
Built in 1978, the Elm Grove Apartments have undergone upgrades to the units consisting of new appliances, floors, and updates to both the kitchens and bathrooms. Site improvements and modernizations have been made to the laundry room, community room and office. Landscaping was redesigned to improve walkways and entryways to both front and back doors to each building.
The renovations to the Elm Grove Apartments were managed by Newfield Construction and designed by QA+M Architects. Farmington Bank is the lender for the project.
