The State Bond Commission has approved funding for the renovation of the Murray building on Main Street into 20 new apartments.

The historic property on 699 Main Street, also known as the Hurley building, has been a critical piece of downtown Willimantic for some time now. Following it’s redevelopment, the building will hold ground retail space in Willimantic’s walkable downtown, as well as the 20 new apartments created with the help of the $2,045,945 loan.

The Murray Building is a Willimantic landmark, and this project marks the next chapter in its long history as a cornerstone of our community. The renovations will help revitalize the downtown area and bring more customers to our small businesses.
