The former Steiger Building is a six story, L-shaped building located at the corner of Pratt and Trumbull Streets in downtown Hartford. Since 1928, it has anchored the corner of Pratt Street, which is unique as the city’s lone and intact, two sided – pedestrian streetscape. Pratt Street is a National Register Historic District. The property adjoins neighboring buildings on both Pratt and Trumbull Streets. The light brown brick, limestone, and granite street elevations are enriched with Art Deco embellishments, and the lobby features significant decorative finishes. Architecturally, the rehabilitation design was cognizant of the existing high-end features that remained within the building. The result was a pristine reproduction that pays homage to the original high style of the building. Additionally, as part of the rehabilitation, the building’s mechanical, electrical, and plumbing systems were entirely upgraded with new energy efficient equipment. The adaptive reuse of the Steiger Building serves as a catalyst of economic vibrancy. In late 2022, tenant occupancy began. There are ninety–seven apartment units on floors two through six and the first–floor storefront retail spaces are an eclectic mixture of seven unique spaces which will include both retail and restaurants.
