1950s apartments make way for mixed-income modernity

Charter Oak Communities broke ground Aug. 14 at the former Vidal Court site in Stamford.

Greenfield is the third phase of the Vidal Court revitalization, which features replacement of a 216-unit rental apartment complex developed in 1955.

Of Greenfield’s 45 mixed-income housing units, 27 will be rented to low- or moderate-income households and be designated as replacement housing for Vidal Court. The remaining 18 units will be designated for market-rate households.
