HARTFORD, CT ─ Consigli Construction Co., Inc., Bruner/Cott Architects, and Community Solutions broke ground on the redevelopment of the Swift Factory in Hartford, CT. The historic site will become a food business hub expected to bring more than 150 long-term jobs to the North Hartford Promise Zone.
Members of Consigli’s Hartford office were joined by Senator Richard Blumenthal, Representative John B. Larson, Mayor Luke Bronin and residents of North Hartford at the groundbreaking.
The redeveloped factory will include a 35,000-square-foot indoor farm run by FreshBox Farms and a commercial kitchen space and incubator for developing local food businesses. The two historic houses on the property are also being redeveloped for community uses.
“The renovation of this historic vacant factory will promote economic development and the health and wellness for the North Hartford community, said President Matthew Consigli. We are excited to contribute towards the revitalization of this community.”
