Fair Haven is a Diverse Community with a Rich History and a Beautiful Waterfront

River Street Past, Fair Haven Future

New Haven Museum: River St.

With the recent news of New England Brewing Co. moving to River St. in Fair Haven, along with the negotiations to bring Jaigantic Studios, a movie and television production company, there as well, we’re going to take a quick look at River St. and some of its former residents, all 19th century high-tech industrial icons of their day.

NHI: Brewing Company Plans to Move to Fair Haven

Plans for a new 80,000 square-foot brewery, tap room, and event space for a vacant former-industrial lot on River Street are moving ahead, as the city prepares to welcome “The Beatles of Craft Brewing” to Fair Haven.

City officials and a brewery-development team sketched in more details on those plans during the latest regular monthly meeting of the city’s Development Commission.

The focus of the hourlong virtual meeting this past Wednesday was New England Brewing Co.‘s (NEBCO) planned move from its current home in Woodbridge to a new “forever home” at 100/142 River St.

That’s a roughly 10-acre, city-owned site between Lloyd Street and Blatchley Avenue that that formerly housed a Hess oil terminal, city Deputy Economic Development Administrator Steve Fontana explained Wednesday.

NHR: New Haven working on deals to bring movie studio to former industrial center

The city is working on a memorandum of understanding and a land disposition agreement to bring Michael Jai White’s plans for Jaigantic Studios to River Street, according to officials.

They have been talking to White, a Black actor, director and writer, for more than a year about locating this project on almost 4 acres of land in the heart of the city’s former industrial center.
