Hartford is one of four cities chosen for the Urban Land Institute’s Rose Fellowship, a year-long annual program which aims to create successful, long-term development plans, reports the Hartford Courant.  The city decided to focus the efforts of this program on Albany Avenue, known commonly as simply “The Avenue.”  A group of urban planners and land use experts brainstormed ideas for revitalizing the mile-plus long corridor, presenting their initial recommendations, including two, mixed-use developments, one near the Hartt School of Music and another at the intersection of Albany Avenue and Woodland Street.
