Developer proposes 100 apartments to replace strip shopping center on Windsor’s town Green

Greg Vaca wants to replace the aging strip center at the intersections of Route 75 and 159 with three apartment buildings, a $25 million project he said that is far better suited to modern lifestyles. If all goes to plan, Vaca hopes to break ground in the summer and be ready to screen prospective clients by the spring of 2023. Vaca, president of Grava Properties, said replacing the strip plaza from the car-centric culture of 50 years ago makes sense in an era when young workers and older, downsizing homeowners are interested in attractive urban centers. The council has endorsed Vaca’s bid for $2.5 million in state aid through a competitive transit-oriented development grant program.
