Decades in the works, ‘city within a city’ project set to begin in Windsor

Great Pond Village, located off of Day Hill Road, entered its next phase Tuesday after two decades of planning and brownfield redevelopment challenges delayed the project. The total investment in the phase is $14.4 million. The first phase of the project debuted in 2019 with the opening of a 230-unit luxury apartment complex. “People can really maximize the best of Connecticut,” Gov. Ned Lamont said during Tuesday’s groundbreaking event. “Great livable spaces, a nice mix of residential, retail, commercial and access to the great outdoors.” Cleanup of the site has been in the works since the early 2000s. In total, the cleanup cost $150 million. Massachusetts-based Winstanley Enterprises, the master developer for Great Pond Village, has been committed to the property since 2008. The development will have its own zoning code, which is known as form-based code.
