Lt. Governor Nancy Wyman today joined Connecticut State Housing Commissioner Evonne Klein, West Hartford Deputy Mayor Shari Cantor and officials from the West Hartford Housing Authority in celebrating the groundbreaking of The Goodwin, a $10 million mixed-income apartment facility.

The Goodwin is located at 189 Newington Road, directly across the street from the Elmwood Stop & Shop Plaza, The facility will consist of 47 mixed-income rental units and will be financed with a private mortgage as well as $3.28 million in assistance from DECD’s CHAMP program.

As a mixed-income development, the project will provide access to the highly regarded West Hartford school system to households with a broad range of incomes.  The unit mix will be 5 one-bedroom units, 36 two-bedroom units and 6 three-bedroom units. Fifteen (15) units will be available to households whose income is below 50% of Area Median Income (AMI), with the remaining thirty-two (32) units available at market rate rents.

The Goodwin will be developed by Trout Brook Realty Advisors (TBRA), an affiliate of West Hartford Housing Authority (WHHA), which has a successful track record and considerable capacity.

“I am pleased that WHHA and TBRA are able to partner with both Farmington Bank and the state to provide safe and affordable housing to West Hartford residents,” stated George Howell, Executive Director of the West Hartford Housing Authority.  “This project will provide more options as well as create quality new housing stock in our town,” Mr. Howell said.
