By now many of you have heard about Trinity’s acquisition of 200 Constitution Plaza. Whereas the exact plans for the building remain in discussion, I wanted to give you a little background on the property!
- 5135,000 square feet over 5 stories
- Formerly used as an educational training center for Traveler’s (constructed in 1986)
- In addition to classrooms, offices, and meeting rooms, there are lounges, kitchen space and a 200 seat amphitheater
Most of Constitution Plaza and the surrounding area has recently undergone new ownership. For example, one of the Plaza buildings, formerly the Sonesta Hotel, has undergone renovation and is opening next month as On the Plaza Apartments. In January, it was announced an undisclosed buyer bought 6 of the Constitution Plaza buildings. Across the street, a property is currently undergoing renovation which will bring at least 2,000 state employees to the area.
It is important to notice that the area is booming with educational facilities! Already located in the area is the UConn Graduate Business Learning Center, Capitol Community College and University of St. Joseph’s pharmacy school. UConn’s Hartford campus will be moving to the site of the former Hartford Times Building as well. We will be in great company!
