Developer touts ‘hidden little treasures’ and ‘cool features’ of downtown Danbury apartment project

A 149-unit complex under construction on Main Street could begin renting apartments with a downtown view by the winter holiday season. “The pandemic is definitely making construction across the country difficult, but our partners at DiMarco Group are doing a great job dealing with the challenges,” said Dan Bertram, the Danbury-based developer of the city’s most anticipated residential development since Kennedy Flats. The idea is not only to market the apartments to the wave of New Yorkers relocating to Fairfield County in search of less coronavirus stress, but to test research suggesting the demand for retail housing in downtown Danbury is growing. A recent study overseen by a Danbury task force laid out blueprints to revitalize the downtown’s nightlife, rebuild its streetscapes and attract 1,200 new apartments, for example.
