Hines Moves Forward with Whit Wooster Square MXU Project in New Haven

International real estate firm Hines has commenced contruction on Whit Wooster Square, a new mixed-use apartment community in New Haven.

The project will bring 230 rental apartments and approximately 5,600 square feet of street-level retail across two buildings located at 630 & 673 Chapel Street in New Haven’s Wooster Square neighborhood. The project will replace a surface parking lot and a vacant office building with a project that will feature a brick façade and steel accents. The design draws from the historic architecture of the surrounding warehouse and mill buildings. The project is less than a mile from Yale University.

“We expect The Whit Wooster Square to bring a new rental experience to this already vibrant enclave of New Haven,” said Grant Jaber, managing director at Hines. “The combination of upscale amenity spaces with thoughtful residence layouts and high-end finishes throughout will set a new benchmark for rental living in the area.”
