Ribbon-Cutting Ceremony To Be Held For First Phase of Summerview Square

Norwalk, CT, August 18, 2010 – The ownership team and construction managers of Norwalk’s first-of-its-kind townhouse-style apartments, Summerview Square will hold a Ribbon-Cutting Ceremony on Wednesday, August 18 at 3:00 p.m., at 4 Summer Street to officially open the first phase of the 63-unit high-end rental community. A tour of the community for the media will be held in advance of the ceremony at 2:30 p.m.

The community is managed by Summerview Development Group, LLC, a Wilton real estate development and building company representing the property owners, Summerview Square, LLC of Westchester County, New York.

Summerview Square, which received unanimous approval from the Norwalk Planning and Zoning Commission, is being built in four phases in the neighborhood surrounding West Main Street, Summer Street and Jefferson Street. The first phase is made up of 13 units of one and two-bedroom apartments. Many associated with the project, including the builders, sub-contractors, and service providers are members of the Home Builders and Remodelers Association (HBRA) of Fairfield County, part of the National Association of Home Builders.

Stated Norwalk Mayor Richard A. Moccia: “Summerview Square demonstrates not only a smart and attractive residential addition to our city, but respect for and cooperation with an established neighborhood of citizens eager to see their environs developed in a beautiful and sustainable manner. The design of Ray Sullivan and the expertise of the development group accomplished all that in a way that makes Norwalk proud.”

Norwalk architect Raymond Sullivan designed the community to preserve its historic look and feel, where each apartment home has a front porch and a sidewalk that links the neighborhood together. The development team has worked closely with The West Main Street Neighborhood Association that has supported the project from its inception.

“Working in collaboration with the property owners, the City of Norwalk, building officials, and the West Main Street Neighborhood Association has been one of the most pleasurable and professional experiences for my team,” says Andrew J. LaSala, Jr., a partner of Summerview Development Group.”

Located conveniently near I-95, the Merritt Parkway and train stations, Summerview Square is a combination of one- and two-bedroom Shingle, Colonial and Victorian-style townhomes with two floors and multi-unit apartment-style flats. All the units have their own attached, one- and two-car garages and private entrances from secure common hallways.

Each comes equipped with Energy efficient GE appliances, Central A/C and heating, Hardwood floors, Walk-In closets, ample storage space, washer-dryers, and at least two bathrooms in the two-bedroom units. Elevators have been installed in some of the multi-level homes that are handicap and wheelchair accessible.
