Hollander Foundation Building
This project was the renovation and restoration of a 6.5-story historic building in Hartford, Connecticut. The “old capitol building” was renovated into 70-units of mixed-income rental housing as well as 13,000 SF of ground floor commercial space, for a total of approximately 100,000 GSF. The building is within walking distance to Hartford’s Downtown, Entertainment District, and Train Station.
This project is the first LEED® Certified Multifamily housing project in the State of Connecticut, and the first LEED® Certified project to use historic tax credits. During the initial design of this project, the LEED® Silver level was the goal. During the construction, there were items performed that added extra points to submit and receive LEED® Gold level.
