Another Development Planned In New Haven On Abandoned Connector

Apr 27th, 2014 | By | Category: General

What the construction of the Alexion Pharmaceuticals headquarters is beginning to do for downtown New Haven, a new development could do for two neighborhoods outside the central business district.

The $50 million project, anchored by the headquarters of the non-profit Continuum of Care Inc., would build on efforts to stitch the city back together, decades after neighborhoods were cleared to make way for the Route 34 connector. The connector, a 1960s, Urban Renewal-era highway project, was never completed.

Construction of the connector stopped at the Air Rights Garage — where the Alexion building is now going up — but a path was cleared far beyond, cutting a swath through such neighborhoods as West River and Hill North.

Those two neighborhoods, on Legion Street between Dwight and Orchard streets, would be reunited by the Continuum project. Eventually, the development could encompass up to 150,000 square feet, including the non-profit home care provider’s 30,000-square-foot headquarters.
