S. Colony garage sold


MERIDEN — A local businessman recently purchased a former garage owned by the Record-Journal Real Estate Co. at 111 S. Colony St.

Houman Shafei paid $100,000 for the 2,800-square-foot building and plans to open a car repair and sales business, said Frank Hird of OR&L Commercial, which brokered the deal. The building was the home of Central Connecticut Transportation and is equipped with overhead doors, offices and repair bays.

Hird, who lists other downtown properties, said real estate activity has picked up since the recession ended more than two years ago.

“There is definitely a little more activity than in the past few years,” Hird said. “It’s all small businesses growing. Whatever they are doing they need more space.”
