Location: Bridgeport, Connecticut
Area: 50,000 Square Feet
Completed: 2011 (Design Only)
Maintaining the character and scale of this active downtown neighborhood (across from our office) was an important design criterion for the developer of the property. Our proposal contains four (4) floors of loft-styled space with retail and covered parking spaces on the first floor totaling 50,000 SF.
The five (5) story industrial-style brick veneer building will fit the vernacular of the neighborhood and will be slightly setback from the street line to maintain a minimal presence with the adjacent apartment and office structures. Retail entries will be further setback to be sympathetic to the pedestrian flow on the sidewalk. The large window openings and large expanses of transparent glass will allow natural light deep into office spaces. A vegetated roof garden is another sustainable design feature we have proposed for this building.
The project is currently in the approval process with the City.
