Summer Tours of Sustainable Swift Factory!

Join Community Solutions, a member of the Climate Stewardship Council, for one of its monthly summer tours of the historic Swift factory. Tours will take place on the last Thursday of the month starting this Thursday, May 25th at 5:30 pm.

Over the next eighteen months, the historic factory will be transformed from a vacant and blighted structure into an economic engine for job creation and health promotion centered on food using green building technology and sustainable site design. Construction is about to begin, so go see the place before it is transformed!

The project will create over 200 construction jobs and 175 permanent jobs in the North Hartford Promise Zone. Building tenants include food manufacturing and indoor agriculture businesses, a food business incubator, shared office, laundry, and health center.

Park in the main factory parking lot, next to the loading dock at 50 Love Lane, Hartford. Tour will begin on the loading dock.
