BROOKFIELD, Conn. – A state representative was on hand recently to celebrate the groundbreaking of Brookfield Village, a development near Brookfield’s Four Corners that will include sidewalks, a widened street, new streetlights, updated landscaping and a number of businesses.
According to a statement from state Rep. Stephen Harding, R-107, ongoing development is causing the area at Federal and Station roads to emerge as a center of robust growth in the town.
“This is a great opportunity to finally provide a downtown area for everyone here in Brookfield,” said Harding, a town native who represents Brookfield, Bethel and Danbury. “I particularly love that the village will be home to several restaurants and retail stores at a primary location where pedestrians can walk safely along our new sidewalks.”
Harding said he looks forward to working with local residents, zoning boards and town officials to make the area a key part of Brookfield’s “economic revitalization.”
Designed by architect Paul B. Bailey, the village is being built by Montagno Construction, according to Harding, who said both the architect and the builder are based in western Connecticut.
Harding said the project is expected to be complete by mid to late 2017.
