Take a Tour ....

  • Start at the lively Town Square where you'll find wide lawns and neat walkways bordered by shops, outdoor cafés, offices, and a range of apartment types—all a short walk away from the University of Connecticut.

  • Market Square will be conveniently located across from Mansfield Town Hall. The neighborhood is being designed to meet daily needs of Mansfield residents and the UConn community. Of great excitement is a new Price Chopper grocery store located within easy walking distance opening in Summer 2014!

  • The more intimate Village Street neighborhood serves as a transition between the Town and Market Square areas. Here you'll find smaller-scaled buildings with outdoor cafés and quaint shops lining the wide, landscaped sidewalks.

  • The Residential Neighborhood will contain quiet streets lined with condominium homes and classic townhomes. In keeping with the latest sustainability practices, development is focused on a compact area, leaving tall trees and small streams along the periphery. Close, convenient, and complete.

  • The community comes together for events such as the Festival on the Green and Winter Fun Day. The town's proximity to the University of Connecticut means it's easy to catch a performance, take in a conference game, or even take a class. See what's happening in town or at UConn.


Storrs Center is a year-round destination for shopping, dining, and celebrating thanks to plentiful parking, walkable streets, and a diverse range of businesses.
