The Hartford, CT apartment market has remained exceptionally strong over the last few years with respect to occupancy, rental rates, and in the past six months new construction activity has increased as new apartment demand continues to surge. REIS Reports announced in December 2013 that the Hartford area had the 6th highest apartment occupancy rate in the country and The Hartford Metro Market is currently at 97.2% occupancy in a market that reports a total of about 38,000 apartments. REIS Reports projected an average occupancy rate of 95.7% for the next five years, when factoring in the nearly 3,000 apartments under construction in the Hartford area. It is important to note that only approximately 11% of Hartford’s inventory of 38,000 apartments were built after 1990, which bodes very well for new, well-designed apartments located in areas such as Glastonbury, where the current apartment supply is made up of apartment communities that are predominantly 40 years or older. The average occupancy rate within the South Hartford submarket is 98.8%, and is forecasted to average 97.5% over the next five years.
Flanagan’s Landing, to be established near popular downtown Glastonbury, will be served by several newer retail developments in Glastonbury Center. The area surrounding the property offers unbeatable shopping and restaurants, including Somerset Square (85,000 sf of luxury retail space), Eric Town Street (90,000 sf of new retail space), and Fox Run Mall, which features a Whole Foods grocery store. The Property is located on a pristine development parcel on New London Turnpike, just southeast of Hebron Avenue, Glastonbury’s primary east and west artery. The 2014 estimated average household income in Glastonbury is approximately $105,000, with an average home value of $360,000. Connecticut Magazine ranked Glastonbury as being the top place to live in 2005 due to its education, leisure/cultural components, it also boasts one of the lowest crime rates in the state.
