For any of you that have been to Storrs, CT, home of the University of UCONN you may know it lacks an urban or even village center for students/residents to enjoy. The state and town of Mansfield have had this project in the works for years, it is nice to see it getting off the ground finally. Here is the description from the site www.storrscenter.com
Go Huskies...

Storrs Center will be a mixed-use town center and main street corridor at the crossroads of the Town of Mansfield, Connecticut and the University of Connecticut. Located along Storrs Road adjacent to the University, the Town Hall, the regional high school, and the community center, Storrs Center will include a new town square across from the School of Fine Arts complex.

The Storrs Center master plan will knit quality architecture, pedestrian-oriented streets, and public spaces into a series of small neighborhoods that will make up the new fabric of the town center. Ground floor retail and commercial uses opening onto landscaped sidewalks and intimate streets will reinforce shared community spaces and will be supported by residences above. Storrs Center will combine retail, restaurant, and office uses with a variety of residence types including rental apartments, town homes and condominium apartments. Structured and surface parking will be provided.
