Harkins: Resort not viable for Army site Brittany Lyte Connecticut Post November 21, 2011STRATFORD -- A local real estate developer's plan to build a destination resort at the site of the long-shuttered Army engine plant is not viable, according to Mayor John A. Harkins office.
Milford-based developer Bob Hartmann, 63, of Hartmann Development, is touting a $1 billion plan to develop the government-owned brownfield on South Main Street into a waterfront resort funded by a public- private partnership.
Both Hartmann and the federal government would contribute $500 million under the plan to support remediation and the construction of movie and television production studios; an interactive air and military museum; a waterfront village with housing, shops, restaurants, bars and a boardwalk; a full-service hotel; public and private marinas; a wellness spa and an outdoor theater.
