Building Neighborhoods Together (BNT)
West Liberty Commons is a new 18-unit townhouse community with a quarter of the apartments set aside for those on the Coordinated Access Network (CAN) homeless list, and the remainder primarily set aside for workforce and affordable housing. This project was funded by the Connecticut State Department of Housing with additional grant and loan funding from Connecticut Housing Finance Authority (CHFA) and lending institutions.

The design team worked hand-in-hand with the City to establish a scheme that reflects and enhances the surrounding neighborhood. Careful consideration was given to the configuration of the building dormers, accents, trim, and porch fascia line in order to match and respect the historic homes on the adjacent three corners. In particular, a turret feature, designed in the spirit of others along the street, was created to mark the corner of the intersection and establish the facility as an anchor in South Bridgeport.

More Information

Much care was given in the design of the individual living units to enable the maximum number of units on this very tight site and to allow each unit to embody the amenities that are common within market-rate housing units. Large, open plan living / dining /kitchen spaces reflect the current trends in modern living. Configured as Townhouses over flats, there is a significant amount of unit and bedroom count diversity.

BNT is the most active non-profit developer of affordable and homeless housing in Southern Connecticut. They are also a leading housing and financial counseling agency in Connecticut.
