Praise for Muslim entrepreneur building engineering complex in Hartford, Conneticut
Abul A. Islam’s plan to build a new 13-story headquarters building downtown for the Middletown engineering and technology firm he founded 17 years ago is welcome news for Hartford on many levels.
The AI Technology Center will add a sleek and stylish anchor for Constitution Plaza at the eastern gateway to the city near the Founders Bridge. And the pending influx of engineers and technology specialists from AI Engineering Inc. will complement the Connecticut Science Center that is scheduled to open across State Street in the spring.
These very positive developments come at a time when economic sentiment is scraping record lows. It takes the optimistic outlook of a successful entrepreneur like Islam to focus not on the present downturn but on the inevitable bounce back that is a year or two in the future.
Kudos to Islam. And welcome to Hartford.
