We are so thankful to DDLC Energy. The company was so cooperative and accommodating on this project.
New London, CT (Vocus) September 1, 2010
New London Harbour Towers, luxury residences with resort-like amenities in the heart New London's Historic Waterfront District, today announced that it invites the public to participate in the debut of a new mural. The unveiling of the mural on the DDLC Energy tank, located across the street from New London Harbour Towers at 461 Bank Street, will take place on Sunday, September 12 at 12:00 noon. Faddy’s Donuts will be on site making complimentary donuts for the public.
New London Harbour Towers recently approached DDLC Energy about sharing costs for the refurbishment of the water view in downtown. Previously, DDLC environmentally-cleaned the tanks, and now New London Harbour Towers has teamed with the company to complete the tank dismantling. With DDLC’s cooperation the project has taken its first steps to becoming a reality.
New London Harbour Towers approached Hygienic Art to tap an artist to paint the original artwork that would become the mural. The artwork for the mural was created by Terry “Davo” Davis.
“This project demonstrates that by working together as a 'community', the arts and business provide a vital force for the benefit of all of New London,” said Davis. “Art makes people proud to live, work and play where they do. They point to their museums, public monuments and cultural institutions with pride. With all the talent here, New London is coming alive with art. Many thanks to Hygienic Art and New London Harbour Towers for helping to make this mural happen.”
The decommissioned oil tanks, visible from the Bank Street-facing condos are in the process of being dismantled and the artwork is being applied to the remaining largest tank to better blend it into the landscape. This mural will join several others that have been created and added to the New London streetscape over the course of the summer.
“We are so thankful to DDLC Energy. The company was so cooperative and accommodating on this project,” said Anthony Silvestri, project manager of New London Harbour Towers. “The refurbishment of the tank will improve the view for everyone that drives down, lives or works on Bank Street. We know, at the end of the day, it’s a tank, but we are hoping with the mural in place, that it becomes a fun landmark for the City of New London, like the tank in Boston.”
Additionally, New London Harbour Towers will be holding an Open House directly following the mural unveiling, until 4:00 p.m.
Since New London Harbour Towers’ Premier Opening in April, the 52-unit residence has been steadily gaining homeowners. New London Harbour Towers offers many amenities for the buyer looking for “luxury with an urban edge” and was recently awarded “Community Revitalization Project of the Year” from the Chamber of Commerce of Eastern Connecticut. New London Harbour Towers is located at 461 Bank Street, in New London.
