The Canal Walk at Hamden development will reside alongside a popular pedestrian trail and within view of the historic Merritt Parkway in Hamden, Connecticut. The new lifestyle center replaces an abandoned factory on a brownfield site, offering a renewing presence to the town.
Berkshire Development desired an image of quality and New England character in bringing upscale tenants together to invite destination shopping. To create the variety of a village setting, façades were embellished with traditional architectural details such as cornices, pediments, quoins and pilasters in a range of colors and textures. Varied rooflines and a distinctive tower element work with the building arrangement and landscaping to achieve a sense of place.
