A new Hartford HealthCare medical office building in Cheshire, approved in January by the Planning and Zoning Commission, will be a 49,000-square-foot facility on the former Cheshire Cinema site. It’s scheduled to open in 2019.
The current plan is for the facility to include primary care, dermatology, endocrinology, neurosciences, rehabilitation, cardiology, and full-service imaging – all in one convenient location. Planning is underway to identify additional services for the building that will benefit the community.
Hartford HealthCare also purchased an adjacent property, the former 7-Eleven convenience store that will be demolished to allow additional parking for the medical building.
The Cheshire Theatre, which opened in 1935, was torn down in 2002 despite organized efforts by Save Our Cinema.
