Phases I and II are part of the Meriden 2020 Choice Neighborhoods Plan to revitalize the neighborhood and replace outdated public housing
Pennrose, a leader in multifamily development and management, and WRT, an integrated design firm of planners, urban designers, architects and landscape architects, celebrated the grand opening of Meriden Commons I and the official groundbreaking of Meriden Commons II in Meriden, Connecticut, on July 24.
The total project, delivered in two phases, is a transit-oriented development that will provide 151 mixed-income apartment units and more than 6,500 square feet of commercial and retail space. Developed in partnership with the City of Meriden, the Meriden Housing Authority (MHA) and Maynard Road Corporation (MRC), the project builds upon recent city efforts to revitalize downtown Meriden and make the area accessible via multimodal transportation.
Both buildings are a crucial part of “Meriden 2020: A Comprehensive Plan for Downtown Meriden,” a HUD Choice Neighborhoods transformation plan created by WRT.
