The Hartford Housing Authority has chosen a developer to take down apartments at Nelton Court and build something new.
The authority recently voted to give Executive Director Alan Green the authority to negotiate a contract with the Simon Konover Companies. The contract for the work should be completed in the next few weeks, Green said.
Nelton Court is the last of its kind. With 120 apartments in 14 buildings in Hartford's North End, this decades-old complex remains the only federally funded family housing development left in the city that hasn't been made over.
Its future was recently the matter of a lawsuit brought against the authority by Meriden developer Salvatore Carabetta. Carabetta said that a 2002 agreement between his company and the authority gave him rights to Nelton Court. A state court judge dismissed the case.
