APPELLATE COURT RULES HARTFORD CAN MOVE FORWARD AND DEVELOP STADIUM PARCELS

APPELLATE COURT RULES HARTFORD CAN MOVE FORWARD AND DEVELOP STADIUM PARCELS

HARTFORD, CONN (November 20, 2019) –The Appellate Court of the State of Connecticut issued a ruling today that allows the City of Hartford to move forward with developing the parcels around Dunkin’ Donuts Park.  Following July’s jury verdict vindicating the City’s decision to fire Centerplan in 2016, the City of Hartford successfully petitioned the Superior Court judge to discharge the liens that Centerplan had placed on the parcels.  Today, the Appellate Court denied Centerplan’s appeal of that Superior Court order.  Please see the Appellate Court’s ruling attached.

“We are in the final stages of negotiating a development agreement with RMS Companies, and this decision fully clears the way forward,” said Mayor Luke Bronin.  “We are looking forward to pursuing the vision for Downtown North that was always promised to Hartford residents.  We made a tough call three years ago to fire the developer we inherited and protect taxpayers, and it is a big win for the City of Hartford to now open a new chapter.  I want to again thank our entire legal team and city staff who have worked hard to put us in this position.”
