THE STORRS CENTER PROJECT FOCUS AT CBC’S MARCH PROGRAM

ROCKY HILL, CT – CBC held its March program on the Storrs Center Project on Tuesday night. Cynthia van Zelm (Executive Director, Mansfield Downtown Partnership, Inc.) and Macon Toledano (VP Planning & Development, Leyland Alliance, LLC, Master Developer) discussed the first phase of the mixed-use development, located at the crossroads of the town center and UConn.

John Hankins (Senior Vice President, Fuss & O’Neill) was the moderator and provided a historical perspective as a 40-year-plus Mansfield resident. 

Attendees were treated to a first hand account of the benefits of the public-private partnership that is essential to this type of development. A strong community influence and a commitment to create a modern and central public space have shaped the evolution of this development, according to van Zelm and Toledano. 

As private and public funding sources shrink and development demands increase, the Storrs Project may very well serve as an ideal case study for future partnerships. 

The event’s presentation is available on CBC’s website, www.cbc-ct.org/cbc_news.
