Trumbull, CT - Connecticut Housing Partners has proposed to construct 49-units of affordable housing for Seniors on Main Street in Monroe. The plan was well-received during a Planning and Zoning Commission at the end of January. the plan is to build a three-story New England style building for residents age 62 and older on Main Street in Monroe as an attractive and well-designed project on a site naturally buffered from neighborhood impacts.
Connecticut Housing Partner's attorney said, "This project would benefit Monroe especially its Senior Citizens! It's something that everybody could be proud of." One of the Commissioners in attendance said, "I think this is a beautiful plan that fills a great need in our town for our aging population and our ability to keep them here."
The housing would be built on just over two acres at 195, 201, and 211 Main Street, close to where Skate Time Roller Rink used to be. Among Connecticut Housing Partners' Senior Housing is Huntington Place, 1235 Huntington Turnpike in Trumbull, Wilton Commons, 21 Station Road in Wilton and Greenfield Commons, 580 Villa Avenue in Fairfield. David Goslin, an architect from Crosskey Architects in Hartford, showed a rendering of the 50,000 square foot facility. "It is a very traditional looking building in keeping with the architecture of Monroe," he said. The independent living facility's front facade has bay windows and gables, according to the design. The facility will include a community room that would serve as a gathering place for tenants to have social events.
Stay tuned as Connecticut Housing Partners continues with the process of bringing this much-needed development to life!
