Hoffman Properties LLC has proposed a plan for the development of approximately 2.2 acres of land located just south of the City of Hartford on County Rd K.  The project is currently in the Town of Hartford and development would require the property to be annexed to the City. 

The proposed plan would consist of converting two existing buildings into two-family and three-family properties, and building an additional two-family and four-family property on the lot, with a potential plan of up to 13 units. 

The Plan Commission reviewed the project in February 2020 and the project, if approved could begin construction in 2020.  Final details and building design would be voted on by the Plan Commission before any site plans are given final approval.  

              17 Acre Mixed Use Re-Development Opportunity  - Hartford Plaza 1201-1275 Bell Avenue

Working with Vandewalle & Associates the concept rendering shown below was unveiled as a potential plan to revitalize the Hartford Plaza.  The development would be a mixed use of apartments, retail stores and office space, additional restaurants and park-like gathering space.  This  exciting new vision was unleashed in January, 2019 for the Common Council.  In February 2019, the City approved a conceptual plan to begin the process to re-develop the area where the former Kmart and Sentry stores were located.  The City is seeking developers who are interested in developing all or part of the project.  Since the original proposal is conceptual in nature, the finished product will likely change, as this is a starting point for the potential development.  This creative new concept is full of opportunity, in a highly traveled and visible area in our vibrant, growing community.    

                                                      Contact Justin Drew for more information regarding Hartford Plaza.

Condo Development LLC is beginning construction of “The Conservancy” which was approved in August, 2019.  Already underway, the developer, Greg James, plans to have its first units completed in spring of 2020.  The view of the natural conservancy bordering the condominiums on three sides of the property no doubt inspired the name of this latest development.

The single story 2 BR, 2 BA condominiums are pictured to the right. A private driveway will provide access to the completed complex.

Craft Retreat House – 209 W Lincoln Ave, Hartford  

A “Craft Retreat House” was proposed by Jean Harley.  The home provides a place for small groups of people to spend time gathering to do crafting projects.  A concept new to Hartford, the home provides refuge from the day to day and allows people to “get away” and go crafting.  Similar “crafting homes” currently operate throughout areas of the State of Wisconsin.  Groups of up to 12 people can rent the home for their projects.  Classes and open sewing nights are part of the offering.  The Craft Retreat House is also available to rent for meetings, showers, and church related retreats.   The project was approved in January 2019 and has begun operation.  The conditional uses permitted have some restrictions to maintain the residential atmosphere of the neighborhood.
