Acquisition and Land Use Approvals for Federally Qualified Health Center

Represented Federally Qualified Health Center in the acquisition and development of real property in downtown Winsted, Connecticut, enabling the client to expand and meet the growing need of the medically-underserved living in the area so that they may have access to quality, affordable and comprehensive primary and preventive health services. The Center will serve a racially and economically diverse population, many of whom have limited employment, transportation, housing and financial resources by adding additional exam rooms, providers, support staff, and equipment in a convenient location, dramatically reducing the number of adults who have no care, or have delayed or not sought care. Over the course of eighteen months, our team handled the negotiation of the purchase transaction, related land use approvals including the successful appeal of a denial by the local planning and zoning commission, as well as related historic, regulatory and environmental matters, allowing for closing of the transaction in early 2018.
