A retail site once occupied by Harold’s Formal Wear, vacant since 2015, was purchased by a private developer. Kenneth Boroson Architects was contracted to design a new seven-story mixed-use transit-oriented development.
The half-acre parcel at 19 Elm Street is in the heart of downtown New Haven and has a Walk Score of 95. It is approximately two blocks from the State Street rail platform and within walking/biking distance of countless businesses, restaurants, professional/medical services, and entertainment venues. The property is accessible from both Elm and State Streets.
The current vacant building will be demolished, and excavation will allow below-grade parking. Street level of the new structure will include retail, offices and 4,900 sf of tenant amenity space. The remaining floors will accommodate a total of 96 market-rate dwellings in a mix of studios, 1-bedroom, and 2-bedroom apartments.
Residents will have access to a 1,700 sf rooftop deck with covered trellis as well as various common spaces. Planned interior amenities include a fitness center, community room, study, and lobby.
Street level and lower-level parking will be available for 41 vehicles as well as two loading spaces. Secure storage will be provided for a minimum of 20 bicycles.
The project has received unanimous approval from New Haven’s City Plan Commission.
