3/26/2014 - 03/26/2014: For-Sale Housing in Storrs Center

“Main Street” Residential Housing Proposed for Storrs Center
Public Invited to Information Session on April 2

March 26, 2014 – A series of forty townhomes and single-floor condominium homes could be under construction at Storrs Center by the spring of 2015.  The newest residential neighborhood for the new downtown community will be introduced at a public information session on Wednesday, April 2 at 7 p.m. according to Howard Kaufman, Managing Member of Storrs Center developer LeylandAlliance LLC.  “We are seeing a strong national trend in favor of for-sale housing in great university and town center communities,” explains Mr. Kaufman.  “People want to enjoy the energy of a true downtown and the ability to walk to work, restaurants, shopping, and recreational activities.  Most want to own their homes.  We believe the location of our new residential neighborhood right at the center of Mansfield, UConn, and Storrs Center is extraordinary and the perfect place to introduce our ‘Main Street Homes.’”  

The proposed housing will be located off of Wilbur Cross Way and will include a variety of townhomes and single-floor condominiums.  Homes will range from approximately 1,025 to over 2,000 square feet and will be built to Storrs Center’s exacting Design and Sustainability Guidelines.  The homes will feature open floor plans with modern construction materials and innovative technologies.  Amenities and features will include items such as a neighborhood clubhouse, pocket parks, ample parking, HardiePlank® exterior siding, architectural shingles, 9’ first-floor ceilings, and kitchens with granite countertops and premium cabinetry. 

A Storrs Center Founding Resident Program will be introduced at the public meeting to confirm interest in the Main Street Homes neighborhood. The public is invited to learn more at the informational meeting to be held Wednesday, April 2 at 7 p.m. at the Nathan Hale Inn, located at 855 Bolton Road.  Reservations are appreciated.  Please respond to or call 845-351-2900, extension 400.  For more information about Storrs Center, visit
