Conversion of West Hartford Convent

Aug 22, 2020 | News

WEST HARTFORD — The ambitious, $65 million conversion at the venerable West Hartford convent on Park Road into apartments isn’t trying to one-up the town’s trendy center but build on what is already in the project’s own backyard.
“We are not Blue Back Square in the center of West Hartford,” Martin J. Kenny, president of Lexington Partners, the project’s co-developer, said. “We feel that the Park Road business district is like Brooklyn is to New York City. We feel this going to strengthen the business district and provide a gateway and combine with what is going on in Parkville. We’re hoping that this is a big shot in the arm.”
