New Canaan: The new New Canaan Medical Arts Center at 23 Vitti Street, is being developed by CH Vitti Street Associates, LLC, an affiliate of New Canaan-based national real estate investor Cambridge Hanover, and Collins Enterprises of Greenwich. CH Vitti acquired the property in February 2016 for $1.525 million.
The new, two-story, 9,000 square foot medical center will be constructed along the parcel’s 121 feet of frontage, with a public courtyard along Vitti Street. The commercial portion of the project includes 2,000 square feet of medical space on the first floor and 7,000 s/f on the second floor. The design and construction will include automated doors, medical grade HVAC system with HEPA filtration, high ceilings, heavy power, abundant parking and full-service management and building security.
Avison Young principal Sean McDonnell and associate Eva Kornreich, will market the new development, which will commence construction this month and is projected to be complete in the spring of 2018. Do H. Chung & Partners is the project architect.
The project also includes a residential component, consisting of eight apartments, to be developed as a separate building on the site. Each use will have its own distinct entrance, identity, and character, and will be separated by a highly-landscaped parking area and residential pathways.
Existing structures on the half-acre-plus, nearly 25,000-square-foot site, including two long vacant commercial buildings, will be demolished to make way for the new project.
