Developer Parag Mehta, middle, gave a tour of Apothecary Hall today to Waterbury mayor, Neil O’Leary, right, and former governor, John Rowland. Mehta owns the building and has spent the past two years transforming old office space into 12 luxury apartments. The Apothecary Buildng is the focal point of Exchange Place in the center of Waterbury at the intersection of South Main and Bank Streets and was built in 1893, and housed the Apothecaries Hall Pharmacy for over 70 years.

The view from the top of Apothecary Hall commands a stunning view of downtown Waterbury. The project is expected to be completed within the next two months.
