Discussion and Tour of the Capewell Horse Nail Factory

Sponsored by the AIA Connecticut Committee on the Environment; the American Planners Association, Connecticut Chapter (CCAPA); and the Congress for a New Urbanism, New England Chapter (CNU-NE)

The program will address pressing issues in Connecticut real estate in the context of three case study projects, covering how lessons learned and methods employed can be adapted to other projects. Case studies will focus on three projects in the historic Sheldon Charter Oak Neighborhood of Hartford, near the original site of Adriaen’s Landing.  A Tour of the Capewell Horsenail Factory project will follow the program.

Topics will include:

  • Historic restoration/repurposing
  • Brownfield remediation
  • Traditional neighborhood design
  • Transit oriented development
  • Code compliance, and
  • How to fund complex projects.

Focusing on real world considerations and getting the projects built, an expert panel will explain how the balanced solutions required for these projects to succeed requires a collaborative approach based on a common vision.
