Low-Income Housing Tax Credit (LIHTC)

Since this property has received funding in part through the Low Income Housing Tax Credit (LIHTC) program, a certain number of units are set aside for lower income households. Households must earn either less than 50% or 60% of the area median income (depending on the set-aside option chosen by the property owner) to qualify for these units. Rents in these units are capped at a maximum of 30% of the set-aside area median income (adjusted for unit size). Some rental units in this property may not be subject to LIHTC and therefore have higher rents and no maximum household income requirement.

616 New Park is managed by West Hartford Housing Authority.

Eighteen months after the groundbreaking, a year after the foundation setting, and several years after the project became more than just a dream but a workable concept, West Hartford’s first mixed-use transit-oriented building is nearly complete.

“It looks like we said it would,” West Hartford Housing Authority CEO George Howell said Monday as he and Property Manager Tim Mable presided over a tour of 616 New Park for town officials and civic leaders.

The striking building sits just to the north of the Elmwood CTfastrak Station, and has been touted by state officials as an example of how CTfastrak has served as a catalyst for desired transit-oriented development. It is also one of the cornerstones of West Hartford’s plans to revitalize and transform the New Park Avenue corridor, and town officials are working with the state and hope to receiving financing for improvements to the overall streetscape and traffic flow.

The building has a “quality look and a quality feel,” said Howell. Interior amenities include a fitness center and game rooms. A billiards table, large TV, and seating will grace the expansive lobby where the tour began, and residents can also gather in front of the large gas fireplace. The ground floor also includes a multipurpose room with a kitchenette that residents can use to host events.

Common areas are highlighted with warm wood tones as well as shades of charcoal, light gray, and lime green.

Mable noted that paintings by a local artists will be on display in the lobby, and a murals will grace one wall of the fitness area as well as at the ends of each hallway. The mural will be a nod to transportation, to go along with the transit-oriented development theme of the project.

All units include a full-size washer and dryer, stylish gray hardwood-style laminate flooring, and stainless steel appliances. One wall of the living room in each unit is painted with charcoal gray chalkboard paint, which will give residents a chance to express themselves with their own artwork if desired. The apartments have high ceilings, large windows, and open floor plan in the kitchen/dining/living room area.

“We have not spent money recklessly, but what we have done is build a product that will work tomorrow,” said Howell.

The 616 New Park building includes 54 apartments, a mixture of one- and two-bedroom units ranging in size from 660 square feet for the smallest one-bedroom/one-bath unit to 1,088 square feet for a two-bedroom/1.5-bath unit with a walk-in closet that’s almost another room in itself.

Thirty of the units will be rented to those who qualify for workforce housing (those who earn 60 percent or less of the area median income) and 13 units will be for veterans. There’s already a wait list for those who qualify for workforce housing, which includes young professionals, and Howell said that the development has received 14 project-based Section 8 vouchers to assist with rental costs.

The Veterans Administration will assist in filling the veteran units, and Sen. John Larson’s office announced Tuesday that the West Hartford Housing Authority has just received five VASH vouchers from the Department of Housing and Urban Development, totaling $43,257, to provide rental assistance for homeless veterans. The vouchers also include case management and supportive clinical services.

The remaining 11 units – five two-bedroom units and six one-bedroom units – will be rented at market rates ranging from $1,400 to $2,300. There are a total of 42 one-bedroom units in the building, and the remaining 12 units have two-bedrooms.

Each unit has one assigned parking space, and renters are able to lease additional spaces as needed.

“This is a nearly $25 million project,” Howell said Monday. In addition to the brick and mortar of the building, more than $2 million was spent in clean-up of the site, which was formerly a Pontiac dealership, and 80- to 100-foot pilings and 18 inches of concrete needed to be installed to stabilize the “crumbly” soil so it could support the structure. A large share of the construction costs were financed by Connecticut Housing Finance Authority credits and other grants.

Mable said that lease applications are being accepted for residency beginning May 1, and a ribbon cutting will be held in June – exactly when Howell said it would happen at the foundation setting last March. All four floors of the building should be able to receive certificates of occupancy at the same time, Mable said.

The building will be more than just residential, but rather “mixed-use” once the 3,000 square-foot commercial space on the south side of the ground floor has been leased. Howell said they had been in negotiation with a tenant that did work out, but there is other interest. They are open to a variety of types of occupancies, but space will not be a full-service restaurant.

In addition to 616 New Park, the West Hartford Housing Authority also manages The Goodwin at 189 Newington Rd., Elm Grove at 11 Grove St., and Alfred E. Plant at 759 Farmington Ave.

State and local officials and business leaders joined Trout Brook Realty Advisors and the West Hartford Housing Authority for a grand opening and ribbon cutting at 616 New Park on Thursday to celebrate the successful completion of the transit-oriented development.

By Ronni Newton

Several CTfastrak buses whizzed by on the busway Thursday afternoon at the grand opening and ribbon cutting of 616 New Park, appropriately punctuating the speeches with visible evidence of the successful completion of West Hartford’s first transit-oriented development, built right next to the Elmwood CTfastrak station and being touted as a catalyst for future development.

“This is a representation of what West Hartford Housing Authority and Trout Brook Realty Advisors and the National Housing Trust does,” said George Howell, speaking to the crowd gathered inside the expansive lobby/community room with its billiard table, large screen TVs, railroad-themed art by a local artist, and gas fireplace.

Howell, who is president and CEO of the West Hartford Housing Authority and secretary of its development arm, Trout Brook Reality Advisors, said it’s about workforce housing and market housing. “And because it’s workforce it doesn’t have to be bland, and this is probably one of the least bland products I’ve seen in a long time including the ones that we’ve already done,” Howell said, noting the pops of bright colors in the building’s modern lobby.

The 616 New Park building includes 54 apartments, a mixture of one- and two-bedroom units ranging in size from 660 square feet for the smallest one-bedroom/one-bath unit to 1,088 square feet for a two-bedroom/1.5-bath unit with a walk-in closet that’s almost another room in itself.

Thirty of the units are earmarked for those who qualify for workforce housing (those who earn 60 percent or less of the area median income) and 11 units are for veterans, with the remaining 11 to be rented at market rates. Howell said that three or four units are already occupied, and about 15 are expected to be rented by July. He expects 30 more leases to be signed in August.

The successful completion of 616 New Park was a team effort, Howell said, and could not have been done without the support of Trout Brook Realty, state officials like State Rep. Joe Verrengia and State Sen. Beth Bye, and West Hartford Mayor Shari Cantor – all of whom believed in the project.

“This is a great asset for this part of town. I think it will serve as a great catalyst for future growth, future interest in the New Park Avenue corridor,” Verrengia said. Other pieces are now starting to come together as well, he said.

It’s a unique model – a “winning trifecta” of workforce-rate, market-rate, and supportive veteran housing. “The West Hartford Housing Authority and Trout Brook Reality, they do it the West Hartford way,” Verrengia said.

“It’s awesome being here seeing the fastrak going by,” said State Sen. Beth Bye. CTfastrak had many skeptics, and this project is a testament to what can happen if you take a risk, she said.

Bye credited Howell for seeing the project through to completion with the three “p’s”: “persistence, positive attitude, and a passion for affordable housing grounded in what that means for people – just grounded in a core mission of helping people.”

Cantor noted Howell’s “ABCs” – “action, bravery, and caring – that is what and who he is.”

Howell is so proud of the properties he’s developed for the town of West Hartford, and those who live there also exhibit pride and caring for the properties, Cantor said.

Cantor said she fully agreed with Chuck Coursey who told her his reaction to the building was: “It’s just a wow … It’s not your father’s affordable housing.”

Young people, those who are the targeted occupants for many of the units at 616 New Park, want an urban environment and communal living, said Cantor, “We know that this is a catalyst for more development that will happen but it took the bravery and vision of George [Howell] to make it happen.”

Ed Pauls attended the ribbon cutting representing the National Housing Trust (NHT), which is a financial partner in 616 New Park, and said that this is the first new construction that the organization has supported. “The reason we did that is that we recognized that it’s not just enough to preserve affordable housing, we recognized that there are needs that need to be fulfilled with new product as well … that’s transit-oriented, mixed income, and mixed use.”

Bob Wienner, president of the Trout Brook Advisors Board of Directors, said that 616 New Park is likely the nicest affordable housing he’s ever seen, and certainly a model unique to the area.

“To do mixed use of this scale in a town like West Hartford is a hard thing,” said Wienner, and fraught with challenges that included environmental contamination and bad soil. It came to be be because of the leadership of the West Hartford Housing Authority and its staff, as well as the support of stakeholders, he said.

“We’re here tonight to celebrate a development that has it all,” said Evonne Klein, commissioner of the Connecticut Department of Housing. “Affordable and market rate affordable rental units, community and commercial space, fastrak only a few yards away, in a community with great schools, jobs, and many other opportunities and amenities.”

“This development will open u a world of new opportunities for its residents, and it will also continue to push the needle forward as we continue to build a Connecticut where everyone will have a place to call home,” Klein said.

Once the ribbon was cut, guests were free to tour the building and visit several of the units, including a fully-staged one-bedroom model.

All units include a full-size washer and dryer, stylish gray hardwood-style laminate flooring, and stainless steel appliances. One wall of the living room in each unit is painted with charcoal gray chalkboard paint, which will give residents a chance to express themselves with their own artwork if desired. The apartments have high ceilings, large windows, and open floor plan in the kitchen/dining/living room area.

In addition to 616 New Park, the West Hartford Housing Authority also manages The Goodwin at 189 Newington Rd., Elm Grove at 11 Grove St., and Alfred E. Plant at 759 Farmington Ave.

Setting the Foundation – 616 New Park

West Hartford Apartment Buildinghands-in-the-cement-slab
State and local officials gathered in West Hartford Tuesday for a ‘foundation setting’ ceremony for the 616 New Park development and also celebrated the two-year anniversary of CTfastrak.

By Ronni Newton

Wearing a hard hat, West Hartford Housing Authority CEO George Howell proudly pointed to a rendering of 616 New Park – a mixed-use, transit-oriented development project that has taken several years and a zoning change to come to fruition.

At at a ceremony that was officially called a “foundation setting,” since groundbreaking took place during the winter, Howell thanked all those who had been involved in helping the West Hartford Housing Authority and its development arm Trout Brook Realty Advisors make the project a reality.

The ceremony was attended by Gov. Dannel P. Malloy, West Hartford Mayor Shari Cantor, Transportation Commissioner James Redeker, Department of Housing Commissioner Evonne Klein, State Sen. Beth Bye, State Rep. Joe Verrengia, Connecticut DOT Public Administrator Michael Sanders, West Hartford Housing Authority Board Chair Kate Miller, Connecticut Housing Finance Authority Executive Director Karl Kilduff, Capitol Area Council of Governments Executive Director Lyle Wray, and other state and local officials and area business owners.

The foundation setting coincided with the two-year anniversary of CTfastrak, which has its Elmwood station located directly south of 616 New Park. The development is being touted as an example of how CTfastrak has served as a catalyst for desired transit-oriented development.

“Over the past two years, CTfastrak has exceeded all expectations – it is a transformative investment in our future,” Malloy said. “The data is showing that more and more people are continuing to take CTfastrak each day, and as ridership grows so does the development of new businesses, new jobs, and new opportunities along the region that it serves.”

Malloy there have been more than 5.5 million rides on CTfastrak since it launched in March 2015. “No one thought we would hit this so quickly,” he said.

“With Connecticut’s bold investment and commitment to the state-of-the-art busway rapid public transportation system and the leadership of the governor, CTfastrak, which started just two years ago, it was our hope and belief that it would serve as a catalyst for economic growth and new transit-oriented development along New Park corridor,” Cantor said. “This investment has provided a unique opportunity to transform this auto-centric corridor with suburban style land uses and a distinctive multi-modal transit-oriented development district.”

Cantor said 616 New Park is an “exciting pioneer development” of residential and mixed use, and is proof of CTfastrak’s encouragement of investment in the community. “This project will help us define the character of this evolving vibrant area and serve as a model example for other mixed use projects.”

The evolution will continued to be fostered through complete streets initiatives, and creative uses effected through zoning ordinance changes, Cantor said. There is plenty of investment interest in the corridor, she said.

Later that day the path was paved for one of those creative uses. On Tuesday evening, the Town Council approved a zoning ordinance change that will allow food trucks and food truck parks in the New Park Avenue corridor.

Regarding 616 New Park, Cantor said the “dynamic transformative development will bring new energy, activity, and most importantly customers to New Park.”

Everyone is invited back for the 616 New Park ribbon cutting, when it will be “sunny and warm, and not raining,” Howell said, getting a laugh from all who were huddled under a tent on the construction site on the rainy and cold March afternoon. The ribbon cutting and grand opening is scheduled for June 2018, he said.

Following the formal celebration, 10 of the dignitaries present, including Malloy and Cantor, were given the opportunity to put their handprints in a fresh slab of concrete. “We will be preserving our legacies collectively … setting the foundation for 616 New Park and setting the direction and next steps for CTfastrak,” Howell said. The slab will be prominently displayed on the building grounds.

The $20 million 616 New Park project, one of the cornerstones of the New Park Avenue corridor’s transit-oriented development strategy, was the recipient of federal tax credits as well as funding from the Connecticut Department of Housing.

Before it could be considered, the West Hartford Town Council had to approve a zoning change to allow for residential development in industrial zones. That change was approved in 2015, and the 616 New Park project was officially announced in June 2015.

The 616 New Park development, which is geared toward young working professionals in their 20s and 30s, will include a total of 54 units. The units will be a mix of market-rate and workforce housing, and 11 of the units will be set aside as supportive housing for veterans. Commercial use will be permitted on the first floor of the multi-use building.

The project is owned by Trout Brook Realty Advisors and will be managed by the West Hartford Housing Authority.

Only the nipples are hidden (and so far). I think with horror that if I take a step, then they will definitely fall out. The cloak is not very long, and, having unfastened two buttons at the bottom, I immediately got naked almost to the waist.
