Future of Army Engine Plant in focus John Burgeson Connecticut Post January 6, 2014STRATFORD -- The former Stratford Army Engine Plant, today little more than a 77-acre industrial wasteland, will become a vibrant community with park lands, apartments, retail stores and entertainment outlets, developers of the long-awaited project announced at a news conference Monday.

Demolition, they said, will begin in about a year, and hopes are that construction will follow soon thereafter.
