U.S. General Services Administration Announces Sites Under Consideration for New Federal Courthouse in Hartford, Conn.

October 11, 2022

BOSTON – The U.S. General Services Administration (GSA) today announced three sites that are under consideration as the potential location for a new federal courthouse in Hartford, Conn.

Earlier this year, GSA received Congressional authorization in the amount of $334,970,000 for the site acquisition, design and construction of a new 281,000-square-foot Hartford Federal courthouse.

After issuing a Request for Expressions of Interest seeking potential sites meeting certain criteria and conducting initial due diligence including site visits, GSA has identified three sites for further analysis:

Ordered from north to south, the sites are:

  • An area generally bound on the south by Allyn Street, on the west by High Street, on the north by Church Street, and on the east by various buildings
  • 10 Ford Street
  • An area generally bound on the south by Buckingham Street, on the west by West Street, on the north by Capitol Avenue, and the east by Hudson Street

“As GSA moves forward with the project, we will continue our partnership with the Administrative Office of the United States Courts, the United States District Court for the District of Connecticut, the United States Court of Appeals for the Second Circuit and the City of Hartford,” Region 1 Public Buildings Service Commissioner and Acting Regional Administrator Glenn C. Rotondo said. “We look forward to delivering a successful project for the Court, the American people and the City of Hartford.”

Beginning this fall, GSA will further analyze these sites and seek the public’s comments as part of the National Environmental Policy Act assessment.
