GLASTONBURY – Continental Properties has finalized its purchase of a seven acre parcel at the corner of Hebron Avenue and House Street and is moving forward with its plan to develop Glastonbury Mews.
The 145-unit rental apartment community is being built by Continental, a part of the Washington Square Group. The group is an integrated real estate company that has more than $3.5 billion worth of real estate and manages more than 5,500 rental units and 800,000 square feet of commercial space.
The proposal calls for a mix of one-, two- and three-bedroom apartments and townhouses. The proposal also calls for a pool and clubhouse along with garages and parking. In addition to the apartments proposed in town, Continental is currently developing and building 228 apartments in Shelton; 200 apartments at Evergreen Walk in South Windsor; and 144 apartments in Rocky Hill.
"We look forward to developing a first-class residential community central and walkable to downtown Glastonbury," Howard S. Rappaport, a principal of Continental Properties, said in a statement.
Construction is expected to begin in the spring.
