Sun before the snow

One building in Phase 2 has frontage on Storrs Road
Before the snow came last week, construction on Phase 2 continued under bright blue skies. Five of the buildings in Phase 2 will feature commercial space on the first floors with rental apartments on the upper floors. (The construction continues despite the snow although the weather is no friend to photographers.)

Leasing of the approximately 34,000 sq ft in Phase 2 is already underway. If you are interested in leasing commercial space, please contact Dan Zelson at Charter Realty and Development.

Five of the buildings in Phase 2 will feature commercial uses on the first floor with apartments above.

The apartments will be part of The Oaks on the Square, which also includes the apartments in Phase 1. Leasing of all Oaks apartments for the next lease term has begun. If you are interested in renting an apartment in Storrs Center, please visit their website, theoaksonthesquare.com.

Phase 2 includes the buildings shown in gray and bright green.

Phase 2 will also include one single-use building, shown in bright green in the above photo. This building will be home to Educational Playcare. A family-owned and -operated day care center serving children from infants to age 5, Educational Playcare will be a welcome addition to the neighborhood.
