Not exactly good news, and this is not the first instance of crime at the construction site.
Someone graffiti-ed a wall on the site not too long ago as well but THIS is a weird story.

Well it looks like City Place has been sold for $113 million which is $14 million more than the owner paid for it 3 years ago. It has only been on the market a few months. Jay

who are the major tenants there now? I remember working there when I was an intern for Aetna back in the late 80s.

I know United Healthcare and MetLife have a presence in there. Those are the only 2 that I can think of right now but obviously there's a lot more. It's almost 100% leased.

I don't think Metlife is in the building anymore. They moved to Bloomfield before United moved in. Jay

This is clearly a ridiculous proposal. What a great way to attract businesses to Hartford.

So the commuters to Hartford use police and fire services often while sitting in their cube?

What an idiot.

Lol. Hartford is open for business!

Hartford will be even more subsidized by the state starting next year when the vehicle tax is capped at 32 mills statewide. Companies already pay taxes to fund the things she mentions, and my company in particular invests heavily in the neighborhood as a good neighbor in the community. In fact, it seems like my company cares more about this city than 90% of Hartford residents do.

I saw this on the news last night and thought it was ridiculous. This councilwoman forgets that the businesses in Hartford pay a lot of the taxes to cover the services given. You could even argue that why should businesses be paying for services not used like education. I really thought that she was obnoxious for using the word "fined" like having a business with employees is illegal or something. Anyway, I doubt this will go anywhere. She is obviously trying to get re-elected and is pandering to voters. Jay

Connecticut Business Taxes Actually Among The Lowest In The Nation - Hartford Courant

Not sure how much that is true still the businesses are paying taxes. Hartford is going to be hit hard by that 32 percent on car taxes. However, mill rate is too high, 74-75%.
