Renovation work to build up New Haven housing stock
(10/16/2013) New Haven Register - The city has approved a renovation of two buildings on Whitney Avenue for conversion to 19 apartments, one of a number of proposals that sailed through a long City Plan Commission agenda Wednesday night.
Owners Henry Harrison and Ruth Lambert will convert 315 Whitney Ave., which has a three-story front building and a two-story rear building, to 19 residential one- and two-bedroom apartments that are expected to be marketed mainly to students in a neighborhood with a high concentration of Yale University graduate students.
The two buildings, which have a combined 19,000 square feet of space, currently have a mix of residential units, as well as doctor offices. The change will eliminate the commercial component.
The property that fronts on Whitney was built in 1910, while the rear was constructed in 1950. There will be no exterior structural changes, while 14 of the 19 apartments will have usable open space.
“There is a lot of interest now in residential units in the city,” said attorney James Segaloff, who represented the owners.
