Storrs Center is one of twenty-two real estate developments that were selected as finalists in the 2015 Urban Land Institute (ULI) Global Awards for Excellence. The competition is widely recognized as one of the land use industry’s most prestigious award programs and includes entries from around the globe.
Storrs Center is a mixed-use town center and main street corridor at the crossroads of the Town of Mansfield, Connecticut and the University of Connecticut. Located along Storrs Road adjacent to the University, the Town Hall, the regional high school, and the community center, Storrs Center knits thoughtful architecture, pedestrian-oriented streets, and public spaces into a series of small neighborhoods that make up the new fabric of the town center. Ground floor retail and commercial uses opening onto landscaped sidewalks reinforce traditional street front activity and is supported by residences above and shared community spaces.
“We are thrilled that Storrs Center has been selected as a finalist for the ULI Global Awards for Excellence,” said Howard Kaufman, CEO and Principal of LeylandAlliance LLC, the master developer of Storrs Center. “It is a significant honor for Storrs Center to be recognized as one of the finest new real estate projects in the world. Credit goes to our entire development team, and our great partners at EdR, the Mansfield Downtown Partnership, the Town of Mansfield, the University of Connecticut, and the community as a whole.”
