Spectra 111, also known as the Neiditz Building, was designed by the architect Willard Wilkins and built in 1950 by Edward Packtor, Inc as the first modern office building in downtown Hartford since 1925. The seven-story mid-century modern steel-frame building has stood vacant since 1987. The building’s exterior (limestone, polished granite, and red brick), as well as aluminum sash ribbon windows, terrazzo floors, pink Tennessee marble walls, and wave crested ceiling, will be fully restored with the aid of Federal and State Historic Rehabilitation Tax Credits. Residences are located above the street-level retail and restaurant space. A two-story gym with Zen garden and a movie theater, as well as an internal connection to its twelve-story neighbor, 101 Pearl, are only a few of many modern luxuries this restored historic building offers. This project is part of Spectra Pearl Apartments which is part of a larger revitalization effort to create big city energy, generating enthusiasm in Hartford and bringing more people and life to Downtown.
