After more than 40 years in Hartford, Barall & Konover Floors is relocating to a neighboring town.

On June 7, the 87-year-old commercial flooring contractor acquired 94 Reed Ave., a vacant 19,200-square-foot commercial/industrial building in West Hartford, for $1.18 million from 94 Reed LLC, according to town land records. 

B&K has also listed its two buildings — including its main office and warehouse at 714 Blue Hills Ave., in Hartford and a smaller retail building at 730 Blue Hills Ave. in Bloomfield — along with a vacant lot for sale for a combined $995,000.

The listing includes the land for each building, as well as the undeveloped property at 736 Blue Hills Ave., in Bloomfield. Combined, the three properties total 2.17 acres.

David Konover, grandson of B&K co-founder and namesake David Konover, told the Hartford Business Journal that his business is relocating because it has outgrown its current location and wants to consolidate into one building.

He said he hopes to be fully moved into the new location by “no later than the end of the year.”

“We are going to put a new roof on it next month and then have a full interior office renovation to complete, but will begin to utilize the warehouse space immediately,” he said. 

He added the move may come sooner “if 714 Blue Hills sells quickly.”

B&K’s main building at 714 Blue Hills Ave., part of which crosses over the line into Bloomfield, is two stories and has approximately 16,160 square feet of space. The main level has office and storage space, while the lower level is used as warehouse space. The building is zoned MS-2, or Main Street District, in Hartford and GWD, for the Blue Hills Gateway District, in Bloomfield.

The smaller building at 730 Blue Hills Ave., is in Bloomfield and is also zoned GWD, which allows for a variety of commercial and residential uses. It has 2,130 square feet of space on the main floor and a 2,130-square-foot basement, and was most recently used by a church group.

B&K was founded in 1937 and originally was located on Raymond Road in West Hartford. It also has been located at various sites in Hartford. It has been at its current location on Blue Hills Avenue since 1984.

The Blue Hills Avenue properties are listed by Hartford-based Sentry Commercial.
