Cooper Carry is providing master planning and architecture services for a development intended to spark the revitalization of a larger district in Bridgeport, Connecticut. The adaptive reuse project will transform a block of vacant manufacturing facilities into a vibrant live, work, play community. The resulting development will include 312 residential units, 64,500 sf of office and live/work lofts, and 22,000 sf retail.

The existing structures are excellent examples of 19th and 20th century multi-level manufacturing facilities. The design will celebrate and the historic past by incorporating elements such as now obsolete heat devices.

The entitlements process will involve collaboration with:

  • Connecticut Housing Financial Authority
  • City of Bridgeport Planning and Zoning Commission
  • Connecticut Historic Preservation Office
  • City of Bridgeport Office of the Mayor
  • City of Bridgeport Planning Department
