The hub on park groundbreaking

Mutual Housing Association of Greater Hartford celebrated a Groundbreaking Ceremony on May 15 with officials from the City of Hartford, the Connecticut Department of Housing, and the U.S. Department of Housing & Urban Development, along with neighborhood stakeholders, partners, and residents.

The Hub on Park is an exciting new transit-oriented development located at the intersection of Park Street and Park Terrace, directly across from Pope Park and within one -half mile of the Parkville CTfastrak station. It is Mutual Housing’s fifth project in Frog Hollow.

The site is comprised of five parcels: 929 Park Street, 981 Park Street, 26 York Street, 30 York Street, and 34 York Street. At 929 Park and 981 Park Street, the current structure will be demolished and replaced with 36 new units. The two-story townhouses and flats and will range from one bedroom to three bedrooms. Gleaming hardwood floors and sleek granite countertops are just a few of the features that will impress future residents and incorporate Mutual Housing’s commitment to durable and sustainable products. The brick exterior reflects the historic architecture of the neighborhood combined with a modern approach to design.

The three properties on York Street are existing three-family historic buildings that will be gut rehabbed while preserving their historic character and façades. The interiors will receive a complete modernization, with new kitchens, bathrooms, flooring, windows, heating systems, and LED lighting.
