Work continues on the future Hartford Public Safety Complex on High Street. These pictures show the progress as of Saturday, June 27, 2009. The current schedule calls for the project to be complete in April 2011, and look something like this.
The roof of the former Hartford Board of Education building has been removed as crews work to preserve the historic brick facade. Looking into the structure, the second floor railing and spindles are visible in the small atrium beyond the front door. You can also see the supports for the former drop ceilings, hanging well below the actual ceilings.
Below the pictures are links to articles that have been written about the project over the past few years.
