June 6, 2019 – Hartford, WI – Contractors have poured the footings and are working on the underground parking for Hartford’s new five-story apartment building on the northwest corner of State and Main.
The 82-unit complex will have 1-3 bedroom apartments, 117 parking spaces including underground parking, and amenities including an elevator, conference room, coffee bar, fitness room, and game room.
Demolition of the six buildings that were on the corner started February, 25, 2019. Remediation crews then completed an abatement process.
The apartment complex, developed by the Brookfield-based Brayton Management Co. Inc, is slated for completion in Spring 2020.
Hartford City Administrator Steve Volkert said the North Bookend Project will be a great addition to the city.
“This corner has been on our radar as a catalytic project and part of the downtown redevelopment since 2015,” he said. “History has shown when you concentrate market-rate apartments in a walkable downtown, it greatly improves viability for the merchants and property owners in that downtown.”
Neighbors on N. Main Street said the structure will stand out for a number of reasons including the underground parking.
On a history note, can you name any other area in Hartford that has underground parking?
