The property has two extant buildings constructed as part of a large factory complex for the Hartford Rubber Works Company. The buildings will be rehabilitated in two phases: (Phase 1) 55 Bartholomew Avenue or the Tire Storage Building, a two-story brick warehouse with a shallow gable roof; and (Phase 2) 45 Bartholomew Avenue or Boiler House, a three-story concrete boiler house built for burning coal. Hands on Hartford will be relocating their offices to 55 Bartholomew Avenue. All support services will be located on the ground floor at 55 Bartholomew Avenue and will include community space, soup kitchen, food pantry, advocacy center and commercial kitchen with a café. Thirteen one-bedroom studio apartments will be on the second floor. During the second phase, the boiler house will be converted to all supportive housing.
