Former Newhall School Building to Be a Small Business Incubator Building Following Approval for Historic Designation

11.18.2013

On November 7th, 2013 the CT Historic Commission approved 496 Newhall Street for listing on the State Register of Historic Places. This is the location of the proposed Hamden Business Incubator which was recently approved by the CT Department of Economic and Community Development and the Legislative Council of the Town of Hamden. The building is approximately 39,000 S.F.

“This designation insures that this building will be preserved for generations”, stated Dale Kroop, Executive Director of the Hamden Economic Development Corporation (HEDC). HEDC will own and operate the incubator. We believe that this building is beautiful and is perfect in it's layout for the intended use for small businesses. We look forward to making improvements that bring out the historic features of the building.

 

The Historic Designation also allows HEDC to raise funding through the sale of historic tax credits. These funds will be used for the construction build-out of the interior space as well as for the improvements to the exterior of the building in accordance with standards established by the State Historic Commission. Other funding the for the rehabilitation of the building will come from the Connecticut Department of Economic and Community Development and other sources such as the Federal EPA.
