BT 2008 LLC, headed by Peter D'Addeo of Rocky Hill-based Commercial Services Realty, is seeking approval to construct five four-story apartment buildings, a gas station and convenience store, second retail building, and an approximately 100-room hotel on the nearly 36-acre property just south of Deming Road. The project would be built in four phases, starting with the gas station and residential buildings, which have been named the Beach Hill Riverfront Apartments and feature a clubhouse and pool. Of the 200 units, 40 would be mixed-income. The hotel would come last, and D'Addeo has pitched planning officials several alternatives — medical offices or 12,000 square feet of additional retail — should the hotel piece of the project not move forward in the future.

RENDERING | PHASE ZERO DESIGN Deep River Distillers seeks approval to open Rocky Hill distillery Vodka maker Deep River Distillers is seeking approval to open a distillery in Rocky Hill, where the company would make its branded Krew Vodka. Deep River Distillers founder and owner Paul Grabek said he wants to convert the Shunpike Business Center at 1275 Cromwell Ave., from office and warehouse space to manufacturing use. If the project is approved, Grabek says he'd hire up to five people to work at the distillery, which would make small batches of Krew Vodka for sale to local bars, restaurants and liquor stores.

Amazon will reconfigure the 104,000-square-foot building and expand the parking lot. Study: 27,200 people moved from NYC to CT in 2020 Over 27,000 people left New York City and its surrounding metro areas for Connecticut last year, according to a new study, attaching concrete numbers to a phenomenon followed closely by the state's elected leaders and real estate industry since the earliest days of the COVID-19 pandemic. Using change-of- address data from the U.S. Postal Service, commercial real estate services firm CBRE calculated that 27,200 people moved to Connecticut from the New York City-Newark- Jersey City area in 2020, making it the fifth-most popular destination for city transplants behind New York state, New Jersey, Florida, Pennsylvania and California. Analysis: COVID-19 hit hotel industry harder in CT Connecticut ranks among the top third of states in terms of hospitality- sector employment loss stemming from the coronavirus pandemic, according to a new trade analysis. The new report from the American Hotel & Lodging Association, which projects Connecticut hotel employment will still be down more than 5,900 jobs from pre-pandemic levels by the end of this year, comes as Gov. Ned Lamont and legislators try to decide what type of state relief to give the hospitality sector. Connecticut hotels employed 26,225 workers in 2019. The number dropped by almost 8,800 last year and is projected to rebound to just over 20,300 by year's end. This would leave the state still down 22.5% from 2019. — Keith Phaneuf | CT Mirror
