500-unit Shartenberg Mixed-Use Development Progresses

via Design New Haven

At a meeting of the Downtown-Wooster Square Community Management Team last night, 360 State Street developer Bruce Becker gave an update on plans for the 32-story tower. The structure of the tower (shown at left) is already up to about 23 floors, and its major impact on the New Haven skyline can already be felt from virtually anywhere within the Downtown or its surrounding neighborhoods.
The most exciting announcement was that, after trying to negotiate with Trader Joes for a 14,000 foot neighborhood grocery store, Becker & Becker is instead on the verge of signing a lease with a much-larger, 140-employee, 30,000 SF grocer -- a fact which has necessitated a complete redesign of the basement and first floor of the building.
The city's push for a Downtown grocery store, such as a Whole Foods, Trader Joes, Fairway or Shop-Rite, even resulted in a ticket being created on SeeClickFix. Bruce Becker anticipates that a lease will be finalized by Thanksgiving.
