Construction began this month on a new 48,000-square-foot medical building, the Connecticut Health and Wellness Center, in North Branford.

Workers officially broke ground on the project, at 28 Branford Rd., on Nov. 2. The building project is slated to be finished and ready for occupancy in June 2024, according to Haynes Development, the construction manager.

The property is owned by 28 Branford Road LLC, with Thomas Haynes, owner of Haynes Development, listed as its principal. 

It purchased the five-acre property in May for $850,000, according to town records.

The development will feature two buildings, with the primary tenant to be BHcare, which will occupy 36,000 of the available 48,000 square feet.

BHcare, which has administrative offices in North Haven, offers various counseling and behavioral health services, such as promoting mental health, helping with recovery from substance abuse and gambling disorders, and providing domestic violence-related assistance.

BHcare has locations throughout Greater New Haven. Once it moves into the new building, BHcare’s North Branford address will be 29 Branford Rd.

Roberta J. Cook, president and CEO of BHcare, said of the construction project, “As we break ground for our new Shoreline location, we are not only constructing a new facility, we are building hope, healing, and a brighter future for countless individuals who will benefit from the services offered here.”
