It seems clear that New Haven is beginning to experience some positive growth. A 5% growth over the past 10 years, coupled with lots of new businesses, low residential vacancy rates, developments and an ever-improving city core/downtown.

So much that it's sometimes hard to keep track of. Hence the thread.

Post in this thread any new construction, businesses, or other developments in the city.

I'll start off.

Apple Store - Broadway
Important anchor for the Broadway shoppping district, which is already very strong.

A lot going on in New Haven. I really liked the residential colleges and the high-rise building, which I think it's needed in New Haven downtown.

On Brewery? Isn't that just a staging area for contractors working on 34/95?

Yes, on Brewery. There's a big building being framed.

I believe the structure being built around Brewery is a train maintenance facility. My uncle is in construction and is working on that very project.
In regard to the topic at large, I have to say that as a NH native I'm excited at the growth the city is experiencing. New projects and jobs are popping up left and right, and not just new retail. We're seeing medical/research/hitech firms creating jobs at a decent clip. Thinking back to the city I knew 15-20 years ago, it really is quite impressive.
