Developers Tim Flanagan and Mark Carlson were joined by Homewood Mayor Rich Hofeld, several trustees and village staff to mark the opening to residents of The Hartford, a new four-story mixed use building in downtown Homewood.
The Hartford, at Ridge Road and Martin Avenue, replaces the Triumph Building which was razed in August 2021.
After cutting the ribbon, Flanagan thanked everyone who contributed to the project, including his business partners, village officials and residents of Homewood, “who all trusted us to do the right thing and turn this corner into something special for the community.”
“We’re so proud to be here in Homewood,” he said. “We’re proud of the building. We’re looking forward to the residents moving in.”
Flanagan said the first residents will begin moving in after the Labor Day holiday.
Hofeld, in turn, thanked Flanagan and his partners for replacing what had been an unoccupied, deteriorating retail building with a new structure.
“This is what we envisioned when we turned the dirt” at the groundbreaking ceremony in December 2021. “We just did a tour of the building, and I think we’re all very impressed with the units inside, and we can’t wait for Stoney Point to open up here as well.”
Stoney Point Grill is the first floor restaurant that is still under construction. It is expected to open in mid-October.
