Storrs Town Center
Completed in 2017, Storrs Center has developed into a mixed-use pedestrian friendly downtown for Mansfield, home to the University of Connecticut. The plan is organized around a half-acre open space that fronts on the community’s main transportation corridor.
The town square designed by K+F serves as the community living room and includes a central lawn circle, a performance stage with brightly colored band shell, and open plaza with decorative paving and movable furniture. Custom designed light pylons, vine trellis’ and historically referenced sculpture give the square a unique placemaking quality. The site hosts festivals, concerts, and a variety of programed and casual activities.
