    New Haven Gets Critical State Funding For Coliseum Redevelopment

    Construction at the site of the former New Haven Coliseum — envisioned since the venue was demolished in 2007 — could get underway next summer now that critical state funding has been earmarked for road and other improvements.

    Gov. Dannel P. Malloy announced Thursday that the $400 million project is slated to receive $21.5 million in state bond money — a boost for a project that will complement other economic development in the city and create new jobs.

    New Haven Coliseum Site Redevelopment
    Plans for the Coliseum property are part of a larger vision to stitch back together New Haven's downtown, divided in the 1960s by the Route 34 connector, which was never finished.

    The Coliseum development — a piece of the larger Downtown Crossing — is expected to include hundreds of apartments, a hotel, shops, restaurants and office space.

    "The Coliseum site redevelopment is a vital component of the Downtown Crossing project and is a once in a generation opportunity to rebuild 5.5 acres of prime land in the heart of New Haven," Malloy said.

    The state funding, which still needs State Bond Commission approval, would be used to reconnect South Orange Street across Route 34 toward Union Station, establishing a connection between downtown and the train station, the Hill neighborhood and the medical district.

    The state's investment is being matched by $12 million from the city.

    The developer, Montreal-based LiveWorkLearnPlay, would begin with a public square flanked by 380 mixed-income apartments; 35,000 square feet of retail space, enough for two dozen shops and restaurants; and 5,000 square feet of space for seasonal incubator businesses.

    Wooster Square Apartments Get Green Light

    Construction can now begin on luxury apartments at the site of Wooster Square’s former Comcast buliding.

    The City Plan Commission Wednesday night unanimously approved site plans for the mixed-use development on Chapel Street by the corner of Olive. Construction is expected to be completed in 12 to 18 months.

    Frank Caico of developer Spinnaker Residential LLC presented renderings of the facades of both buildings. The development plans to create a “pedestrian-friendly and utilized environment,” in the “underutilized” gap between downtown and Wooster Square, he said.

    Two existing Comcast buildings at the address will be demolished and redeveloped. A six-floor building on 630 Chapel St. will contain 166 residential apartments with 7,200 square feet of retail space on the ground floor. A five-floor building across the street at 673 Chapel will contain 66 residential apartments with 2,000 square feet of retail and restaurant space on the ground floor.

    Alders Greenlight 87 Union

    n a unanimous roll call vote, Board of Alders granted zoning relief to Wooster Square’s latest proposal for new apartments at its regular meeting Thursday night.

    87 Union developer Noel Petra asked the city for a zoning change from a warehouse-oriented district to a central business/residential, or BD-1, zone to allow for denser, mixed-use development.

    This is the final approval Petra needed.

    “We would like to start building in late spring or early summer,” Petra (pictured) said Friday.

    The final plan was modified after meetings with the community. Petra withdrew a request for a 3.5 floor to area ration, rather than the 3.0 he ended up with.

    “We met with the community. They said, ‘We’d like it to be less dense’” and have more parking,” Petra said. “We modified our plans. We ended up with a slightly less-dense” project.

    The project will replace warehouses and a plumbing supply store with a mix of studios, apartments, townhouses, and retail. Petra said Friday he expects to include 285 to 300 apartments in the final development and have storefronts line the entire length of the Olive Street portion, as well as along Union Street. The original plan called for 325 apartments.

    Hotel Builder Woos Wooster Square & Downtown

    The latest stop on the Marriott Residence Inn’s neighborhood appeasement tour: downtown and Wooster Square.

    Developer Douglas Cohen spoke to the neighborhoods’ community management team at City Hall Wednesday night to provide updates on the planning process and solicit feedback on how to proceed with the proposed six-story 115-room extended-stay inn he hopes to build on Elm and Howe streets. Two weeks earlier, he had made a similar stop at the Dwight Management Team, the first since formally withdrawing plans in the face of neighborhood opposition.

    Ground Broken For State Street Lofts
    A groundbreaking in East Rock’s Goatville section Tuesday was a celebration of not just new lofts, but of what can happen when a community and a developer actually agree on a project.

    City officials and developers tossed a little dirt from a makeshift pile just across the street from what will eventually become the “State Street Lofts”—4,000 square feet of ground floor retail space with three residential units on the second floor. Just behind that will be another 232 market-rate apartments. The development is expected to have 273 parking spots—more than zoning requires—and 235 bike-parking spots.

    For more than five years, plans for the abandoned for Star Supply Property, a complex of five brick structures at the corner of State, Lawrence and Mechanic streets, had come and gone. Neighbors and developers were at odds.
    But almost a year ago, after meetings with community members, developers were able to come up with a plan that satisfied most of neighbors’ concerns about parking and gentrification.

    It appears that Malloy wants even more stations then listed in there. Similar to what I laided out on Archboston a year ago.

    Hill-to-Downtown Transit-Oriented Development Community Plan



    City of New Haven, Connecticut, New Haven, CT
    New Haven’s gateway district: a new front door for the city

    The City of New Haven initiated the Hill-to-Downtown Community Plan to unlock the potential of this transit served location as a walkable, mixed-use medical, research, residential, and retail district between downtown New Haven and the Hill neighborhood. Located directly adjacent to historic Union Station, the area has languished since urban-renewal-era planning resulted in widespread land clearance and left a disjointed and dysfunctional street network.

    Developed through a robust public process that engaged all community and institutional stakeholders, the Community Plan includes the following initiatives:

    Reconnects Downtown, the Hill, and the Medical District (Yale New Haven Hospital, Yale School of Medicine, and related research enterprises) with each other
    Promotes redevelopment of the 300-unit Church Street South section 8 residential complex as a 750-unit mixed-income, mixed-use community
    Links Union Station to the district and downtown through creation of a Union Square, a gateway public space and destination
    Revises zoning that incorporate height transitions between higher density research and residential areas and the modest scale of surrounding neighborhoods
