Grand Opening And Ribbon Cutting At The Zunner Building

NINA and its partners held a grand opening and ribbon cutting ceremony at the Zunner Building today.  The ceremony marked the formal conclusion of work on the building, which was NINA's biggest project (5 years, $2.5 million) to date.

The Zunner Building is an important anchor for the Asylum Hill neighborhood, and it also represents a capstone for NINA’s work on Ashley and Garden Streets.  NINA started work here 13 years ago, when it moved the Victorian Lady two doors down from the Zunner Building, and NINA also worked on 8 Ashley Street and 221 Garden Street, which both abut the Zunner Building.

We are tremendously grateful to all of our partners on this project!

Major funding for this project was provided by the State of Connecticut through its Housing Tax Credit Contribution Program, its Historic Preservation Tax Credit Program, and its Urban Action Grant Program; the City of Hartford through its Façade Improvement Program and its Anti-Blight Tax Deferral Program; The Hartford, which contributes to NINA directly and also contributed to this project through the State of Connecticut’s Neighborhood Assistance Act program; Eversource Energy, which close to $1 million to this project through the State’s tax credit programs; and LISC, which provided construction financing for this project.
