Insurer Hires Firm to Resume Work at Hartford Stadium

August 5, 2016

Hartford’s mayor says work is set to resume on the city’s problem-plagued minor league baseball stadium, months after it was scheduled to open.

Mayor Luke Bronin says the surety bonding company, Arch Insurance, has hired an architectural firm to complete some of the work left undone by developers DoNo LLC and Centerplan Construction.

Bronin fired the developers following a series of missed deadlines on the $63 million park, which was originally scheduled to open in April.

Under its agreement with Arch, the city will be paying $245,000 for work previously done by Pendulum, the Kansas City-based architects, and the insurer will pay for the new work.

The Double-A Yard Goats, which have played this season on the road, could leave the city if the ballpark is not finished in six months.
