In Connecticut, Cooper Robertson recently revealed its master plan for waterfront redevelopment of Middletown. The plan envisions sweeping changes to a 220-acre stretch along the Connecticut River — a district that will include restaurants, entertainment venues and mixed-use housing.

Mixed-income housing, primarily apartments and townhouses, is part of the plan. Commercial development is as well. The next step is to rezone the waterfront area to facilitate development.
