Wall Street Place Norwalk, Connecticut

A New Mixed-Use/Mixed-Income Development for Norwalk
K&A is providing complete architectural and engineering design services for a new, two-phased, mixed-use/mixed-income development in downtown Norwalk, Connecticut. Encompassing over 230,000 square feet of programming in a five- to eight-story building, the finished complex will act as an integral part of the Redevelopment Master Plan for the city. The program for Wall Street Place will include 101 one- and two-bedroom living units in both flat and maisonette configurations, 15,500 square feet of ground floor commercial retail space, and 222 automated parking spaces located in a below-grade parking garage.

The design of Wall Street Place includes large windows and private balconies, all treated in a contemporary motif. These are set off by cast-stone elements, brick veneer sections and metal panels of various colors and textures. The site design for the project includes enhancements and upgrades to the existing streetscape as well as a completely new urban street, allowing access to the proposed second phase of the development, which will include additional residential units.

Wall Street Place is fully expected to be a LEED®-Certified project, as well as an Energy Star Multifamily High-Rise development. In accordance with the Low-Income Housing Tax Credit (LIHTC) finance program, the project will be a 70/30 project with 30% of the units designated as workforce housing.
