665 Commerce Drive–Fairfield, CT

665 Commerce Drive is a mixed-use, transit-oriented, ground-up development project located at the intersection of Commerce Drive and Black Rock Turnpike in Fairfield, CT. The project is designed as a 5-story, brick building consisting of a 139,669 square feet of mixed-use space and will be the first institutional-quality, Class A residential rental property in the Town of Fairfield.

The project site is located 0.1 miles to the recently constructed Fairfield Metro Train Station (direct train service to Grand Central Terminal), which will be a convenient walk for residents, and less than ¼ mile to Interstate 95. The project is expected to add several retail tenants to an already rich retail amenity base in the neighborhood, which includes Whole Foods, CVS, Fairfield Cinemas and several local restaurants including Fairfield Pizza, Rio Bravo, Little Goose, etc.

The building will include 14,894 square feet of retail on the 1st floor, 101 residential apartment units located on floors 2-5 and 187 at-grade parking spaces. 62 of the 187 spaces are covered due to a second level outdoor amenity deck that is to be utilized by the residents.

The residential mix of apartments will consist of 4 studios, 73 one-bedrooms and 24 two-bedroom units. The residential units will each feature oversized windows, central heating/cooling, stainless steel appliances, and in-unit washer/dryers. Common area amenities include a clubhouse, fitness center and an elevated outdoor amenity deck. The landscaped outdoor deck will feature a pool, BBQ area with seating, fire pit, bocce court and an open lawn.

The project is expected to open for occupancy in the spring of 2017.
