A recent bus tour by U.S. Sen. Chris Murphy and Mayor Harry Rilling highlighted a number of projects now underway.
The projects are among seven in the state that will collectively create 439 rental units: 348 designated as affordable and 91 as market rate.
Upon completion, Soundview Landing will replace the former 136-unit Washington Village public housing project with 273 new, modern apartments, inclusive of a one-for-one replacement of the 136 public housing units that previously existed.
When the city was developing its TOD plan for South Norwalk, it discovered 12 different zoning districts within a radius of less than a mile. “It was like, ‘What’s the point of this?’” said Norwalk Redevelopment Agency Executive Director Timothy Sheehan.
The new complex, which involved the razing of the existing Washington Village and its 136 apartments, will feature a mix of workforce, public-housing and market-rate apartments as well as a new name: Soundview Landing.
The revamped public housing complex will be built over the course of five years in three phases.
Upon completion, the 136-unit Washington Village public housing project will be replaced by a 273-apartment complex.
As the Norwalk Housing Authority looks to assemble financing for an overhaul of the city’s Washington Village development, it will seek a share of $72 million in federal storm-related aid Connecticut is set to receive.
