The Storrs Center is a mixed-use town center located in Storrs, in the town of Mansfield, Connecticut, adjacent to the University of Connecticut. At completion, Storrs Center will include about 160,000 square feet (150,000 sq m) of restaurants, cafés, shops, and nightlife venues. It also will have about 650 residential units, including 615 rentals and 38 for-sale residences, relieving pent-up demand for housing in a market lacking high-quality housing options.
This project is envisioned to create a true college town for the state’s flagship university and an economically vibrant, sustainable town center. The Storrs Center project has become a reference for college town center development and constitutes one of the most ambitious public/private initiatives in the state’s history.
