As Urban Design Project Manager with ICON Architecture:
The city of Bridgeport, while enjoying direct and frequent rail service to New Haven, Stamford and Manhattan, having a historic and humanely scaled fabric, and an unparalleled sense of walkability, has not enjoyed the growth that has occurred in the rest of the region for the past 50 years. Yet as demand continues to spread outward from the region’s core, Bridgeport is the next logical location along the Connecticut coast for infill development.
The focus is on creating a vibrant mix of land uses with residential prioritized in the short term and office development and retail targeted on the longer horizon, resulting in a framework in place to harness upcoming demand around transit oriented communities.
