Jan. 25, 2019 – Hartford, WI – Fencing has started to go up in preparation for the 5-story apartment complex on the corner of Hartford’s Main and State Streets.
The apartment complex, which is being developed by the Brookfield-based Brayton Management Co. Inc, will have this multi-family complex completed by Spring 2020.
The 82-unit complex will have 1-3 bedroom apartments, 117 parking spaces including underground parking, and several amenities including an elevator, conference room, coffee bar, fitness room, and game room.
“The first step will be to perform abatement of any contamination issues within the six buildings on this block followed by demolition of the sight,” said City Administrator, Steve Volkert. “While fencing will be up, there still plans on having the gates open to the parking lot commonly used by downtown businesses and overnight residents in this area of N. Main. Once demolition begins in February, those gates will be closed for safety issues.”
“This corner has been on our radar as a catalectic project and part of the downtown redevelopment since 2015 when a plan was rolled out,” Volkert 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.”
