A project nearly 20 years in the making broke new ground last week as plans were presented for a revamped Webster Street parking lot that include a public park. At the Dec. 1 meeting of the Common Council’s Economic and Community Development Committee, project designers outlined plans for a 650-spot parking garage and 420-unit apartment complex on the Webster lot property. The agency settled on development firm Quarterra, Bidolli said. The firm then brought on Antunovich Associates, an architectural firm, to help create the site plans. The project is expected to include six to nine months of gathering city input, including holding several open houses, before moving to the next phase of design, Quarterra’s Stamford Vice President of Development Doug Browne said. Once the public outreach portion of the project is complete next fall, design of the project will take an additional 18 to 20 months before construction will begin, Browne said.
