Audubon Square, Evolving.
Elm City, Thriving.
A Sense of Place
Anchoring Audubon St.
Planned as an appropriately-scaled, primarily residential mixed-use community, the improvement to the urban fabric will help better connect downtown, Wooster Square, East Rock, and the new commercial tenants within the development, re-energizing Audubon Street and the surrounding New Haven neighborhood.
Expansion of the City's Public Realm
Rounding out the Southeast corner of the project, this public facing “realm” will work to further engage the local community through appropriate retail and commercial offerings.
Relatable Street and Block Dimensions
The plan reduces the current “superblock” to a more manageable pedestrian environment by introducing a publicly accessible but privately maintained “street.” This will allow for a phased development of moderately-sized buildings on appropriately-sized blocks and provide more street frontage as well as public realm space and a gradual transition to the nearby East Rock and Wooster Square neighborhoods.
The residential portion of the project affords tenants the opportunity to access shared green space through a thoughtfully designed interior courtyard.
The expansion of downtown parking resources providing behind visually appealing structures will help deliver impactful quality of life improvements to the neighborhood, while offering balanced evening and weekend parking for area residents and visitors.
Future Phases Vision
Our plan allows for additional structures designed with a forward thinking approach to providing flexible space for an evolving New Haven.
