A downtown uniquely positioned
for Transit Oriented Development
Discover downtown New Britain, Connecticut, an historic downtown with a wealth of opportunities and incentives that make it an ideal place for businesses to grow and prosper.
World famous as the home of invention and manufacturing for over 150 years, New Britain's downtown is itself being reinvented with the coming CTfastrak and the City's energetic Streetscape Improvement Plan. These initiatives will tie the regions new Bus Rapid Transit system into our Downtown to revitalize our downtown from the Courthouse to Columbus Park.
The first phase of this plan was completed in January with the opening of New Britain's state-of-the-art 87,000 sq. ft. Police and retail complex.
The infusion of millions of dollars in state and local money for infrastructure and other improvements, has led to an economic revitalization that is paving the way for a dynamic future. New office buildings for both the State of Connecticut and private firms have been erected in recent years, and with the nearby New Britain Superior Court and the Hospital of Central Connecticut, less than one mile from downtown, we can help you find the perfect location for your new or satelite legal and medical office space. Retail shops, restaurants, and financial services are healthy and growing due to the increased volume of pedestrian and professional traffic.
