As luxury apartments near Bridgeport groundbreaking, BNT affordable apartment development is delayed

BRIDGEPORT — As Steelpointe’s Christoph family aims to break ground this fall on luxury apartments at the harbor-front East Side site, construction of BNT’s affordable units the developers are backing a few blocks away per their contract with the city is delayed.

“The project did compete for (state) low income housing tax credits this past January (and) lost by a couple points,” said Elizabeth Torres.

Working with BNT as a consultant, Torres and BNT CEO Doris Latorre in a joint interview this week said they are aiming to submit a successful application for tax credits to the Connecticut Housing Finance Authority in January. “The project is ideally suited for the area, and we will do everything we can to win the project’s funding”, said Doris Latorre.

Torres is the former head of Building Neighborhoods Together (BNT), which has partnered with the father/son team of Robert Christoph Sr. and Jr. to build 44 units of mostly-affordable apartments at East Main and Nichols streets, located near new job opportunities nearby, and a short walk from Steelpointe and Bridgeport’s main train and bus stations.
