$20M residential project proposed for Fort Trumbull area

New London

A Pennsylvania-based developer is proposing a $20 million multifamily residential project to be located on the long-vacant Fort Trumbull waterfront property.

The Day reports (https://bit.ly/2YoMQiy) that A.R. Building Co. won approval for the project from the Renaissance City Development Association on Thursday.

The proposal is still in the early stages, but calls for 104 units. It will include three buildings on parcels near the Coast Guard station.

The Fort Trumbull neighborhood was at the center of a landmark 2005 eminent domain case in which the U.S. Supreme Court ruled in the city’s favor.

That decision allowed the city and its development corporation to take over the area, clear out homes and upgrade infrastructure.

Despite the ruling, the planned development project fell through and the area has remained mostly empty.
