Mikro Expansion Approved by the Town of Hamden


The Hamden Legislative Council approved business incentives for Leonardo Properties for the expansion of MiKro Beer Bar and Restaurant, currently located at 3000 Whitney Avenue. MiKro owner, Mike Farber, has taken his passion for beer and food to Hamden, CT. MiKro is an intimate space built to feature craft beer, with 18 rotating taps. MiKro’s Chef has designed a beer-centric, playfully creative menu intended to highlight local and seasonal items that pair well with MiKro’s beer offerings.

The location of the expansion will be O Depot Road which is directly off Sherman Avenue close to Whitney Avenue and behind Dunkin Donuts at the corner of Whitney Avenue and Sherman Avenue. The total investment into the project will be approximately $800,000 for renovations of the current depot buildings and a large expansion. The project has also been approved by the Planning and Zoning Commission.

The incentives include a three year tax abatement on the investment made into the property as well as a waiver of a portion of the building fees. “We are very pleased that one of Hamden’s most recognizable businesses has decided to make such a significant investment in our Town. MiKro is one of Hamden’s most original restaurants, and has quickly become a local favorite amongst our residents and daily visitors.” commented Mayor Curt Balzano Leng.

“This project has been under negotiation and planning for many months. We have involved our Planning Office during development team meetings and our land use commissions. The Hamden Tax Incentive Committee and the Economic Development Commission who also approved of the incentives. It shows a total team effort to effectuate such a large investment into a local restaurant that will become a destination place in Hamden.” stated Dale Kroop, Director of Economic Development and Neighborhood Revitalization.
