    Mill River Plan Builds on Area’s Strengths to Grow Industry & Jobs in the City

    (7/24/2012) Building on existing strengths of the Mill River District, the City of New Haven today released preliminary plans to revitalize the area as a destination hub for light industry, home improvement, and food businesses. The preliminary findings of the Mill River Phase 1 Planning and Development Framework were celebrated Tuesday at a press conference at the newly redeveloped Powerhouse Building on Grand Avenue, in the heart of the Mill River district.

    The Mill River Phase 1 Planning and Development Framework is the result of a thorough analysis of the ongoing successes and future opportunities in the area. The plan identifies three primary development strategies that build off existing strengths of the area for job retention, job creation and economic growth.

    Those include:

    • An Industrial Village promoting light industry and live-work spaces;

    • A Home Improvement Marketplace that capitalizes on the multitude of home products already available in the district to create a shopping district competitive with suburban big box stores; and

    • And Mercantile Food Hub to grow the robust food manufacturing and distribution sector in the area, which currently ships products across the county.
