We are pleased to announce that construction of Main Street Homes – the new for-sale neighborhood in Storrs Center – will begin by the end of June! Heavy equipment will shortly begin installing the infrastructure for the 42-home neighborhood, including cutting in the roads and park areas, initiating engineering and utility work, and preparing the building sites for the mix of 32 townhomes and 10 flats that will be built.
The response to Main Street Homes has been strong, with over half of the homes already under contract. The future residents are illustrative of a new trend of homebuyers that are opting to live in walkable neighborhoods. A Transportation for America survey shows that 80 percent of 18- to 34-year-olds want to live in walkable neighborhoods, and an AARP survey found that an average of 60 percent of those over 50 want to live within one mile of daily goods and services. Main Street Homes is the only neighborhood in Storrs Center in which people can purchase homes. Residents will be living steps away from the many restaurants, shops and services in Storrs Center, as well as in close proximity to UConn and the Mansfield Community Center, among other attractions.
The master plan and architecture for the homes and neighborhood center of Main Street Homes is by Union Studio of Providence, Rhode Island. Union Studio has been recognized nationally for its work in designing walkable communities, most recently having won “Community of the Year” by the National Association of Homebuilders for its Concord Riverwalk neighborhood in West Concord, Massachusetts.
Future residents of Main Street Homes have been busy selecting the colors, finishes, and other options for their new homes. The first residents are expected to be able to move into their new homes in late 2015 or early 2016.
