Project Highlights: Constitution Plaza was originally developed in the early 1960's as a redevelopment initiative. It consists of several office buildings, underground parking, restaurants and a raised outdoor plaza. Upon acquisition, 5 Constitution Plaza was a 12 story fully vacant building, formerly operated as the Plaza, and then Clarion, Hotel. Located at the gateway to Hartford, the property was in dire need of redevelopment. The partnership of Girona Ventures and Wonder Works Construction & Development took on this challenge and transformed the property into 193 luxury rental apartments. The completed property features large, modern units, fitness center, private storage spaces, business center, indoor hardwood basketball court and direct access to covered parking.

The redevelopment of this property was highly praised, and widely accepted as a much-needed improvement to downtown Hartford . The partnership of Girona Ventures and Wonder Works Construction & Development was awarded the 2016 Hartford Preservation Alliance "Best Adaptive Re-Use" Award, an Award of Merit from the Connecticut Trust for Historic Preservation and was recently named "Best of Hartford" 2017 Best Upscale Apartment Complex.
