State Investment to Expand Housing Opportunities in Willimantic

February 16, 2018

The historic property on 699 Main Street, also known as the Hurley building, has been a critical piece of downtown Willimantic for some time now. Following its redevelopment, the building will hold ground retail space in Willimantic’s walkable downtown, as well as the new apartment units.

“A major component of a vibrant and thriving downtown Willimantic is the ease of residents’ access to area businesses and services,” said Representative Orange (D-Colchester, Lebanon, Windham, Mansfield). “This investment in affordable housing will provide excellent returns in the way of increased economic activity and a more robust community. I look forward to seeing this project take shape.”

The Murray Building is a Willimantic landmark, and this project marks the next chapter in its long history as a cornerstone of our community. The renovations will help revitalize the downtown area and bring more customers to our small businesses.
