2021 Power 25 Real Estate: Rohan Freeman

Rohan Freeman, founder and president of engineering firm Freeman Cos. LLC, is inching closer to the debut of a $26 million project that will redevelop longtime blighted Hartford properties at the corner of Park and Main streets.

When construction is completed, the mixed-use development will give rise to 126 apartments and retail space and provide a much-needed boost to Hartford’s vibrancy and grand list.

Freeman was also behind a $22.5 million mixed-use development proposed for the corner of Woodland Street and Albany Avenue in Hartford, but that project was shelved by city officials, who have said they want more market-rate apartments in the area.
