The mixed use building at 11-21 Main St. has been selected by the Connecticut Main Street Center (CMSC) as the model property for the Come Home to Downtown pilot program, reports The Register Citizen. Torrington was one of three communities previously chosen for the pilot program (the others are Middletown and Waterbury)
Under the Come Home to Downtown pilot program, Torrington will have the opportunity to revitalize the downtown corridor while adding housing options and reclaiming vacant or under-utilized spaces. The chosen property is owned by the Torrington Downtown Partners: Steven Roth, president of Elevator Service Company, Inc., Stephen Timken of T&M Builders and David Bender of Bender Plumbing. Bill Crosskey, of Crosskey Architecture LLC, made a presentation to the Torrington Advisory Team last night about what it may take to transform the space into 16 one-bedroom flats.
