Downtown Waterbury’s Next Chapter
Listed on the National Register of Historic Places, Downtown Waterbury came into its own during the City Beautiful Movement, and features outstanding architecture by the most renowned architects of the 19th & early 20th centuries. These classic downtown buildings have stood the test of time and are ripe and ready for a new chapter.
Additionally, the adjacent Freight Street District features sixty acres of attractive low-cost developable commercial property that is the recipient of $19.5 million in transit-oriented development investment. The State of CT, the City of Waterbury, and their many partners have invested in infrastructure , transportation , and the overall revitalization of downtown to achieve the community’s vision of a vibrant center for residents, businesses, students and visitors.
With presentations and discussion by development practitioners, this conference will provide you with the information necessary to easily navigate the process of historic building conversion. Waterbury is open for business!
Showcase will include:
- Panel Discussions about Downtown Development Opportunities
