Quinnipiac Terrace NEW HAVEN, CT
The award-winning 226-unit Quinnipiac Terrace transformed an obsolete housing project into a “community of choice,” blending both rental and homeownership opportunities, and mixing families and senior residents. Taking advantage of its attractive riverfront site, the plan reintroduced the neighborhood street grid, relinking the adjacent Fairhaven neighborhood, and creating views to the river with its enhanced riverfront park. Building design takes cues from this riverfront community’s historic prototypical “Oyster House,” lifting housing above brick flood-proof lower levels.
