On April 10, Higgenbotham Auctioneers will host an auction for a 2.44 acre piece of property with a large old factory building at 1717 Dixwell Ave known as the Hamden Pond property.
Hamden Patch wants to know -- what would you like to see there?
There's about 60,000 square feet of space in the brick building at the intersection of Dixwell Avenue and Mather Street built in 1930, and a seperate 5,000 square foot building also included in the sale, according to the auction materials.
The building as 23' high ceilings and it was partially renovated about five years ago for "Paradise Village Center," a development whose plans included eatieries and retail space. Those plans were approved but the project never materialized, and the plans are included in the auction materials.
The taxes on the property are about $25,000, according to the auction materials. The property is zoned T4, which allows for both residential and retail uses.
What do you think would be best suited for that property?
