The recession hit downtown Hartford’s commercial real estate market hard. In 2009 nearly 760,000 square feet of space became vacant. Combine this with bankruptcies, foreclosures, stalled projects, and a down economy…and it’s tough to know what shape the capitol city’s in.
Today, Where We Live, a talk with a writer who covers development, a city official and a developer will talk about the prospects of corporations, retail shops and residents moving into Hartford, and what Hartford’s real estate troubles can tell us about the rest of the state.
