With economic development on the rise in Trumbull, here is a look at some of the top projects

TRUMBULL — The town has never been known for its walkability or nightlife, but that could be changing as a number of economic development projects either near completion or the beginning of construction.

The town has seen several new development projects begin construction this year, from the Woodside Trumbull townhouse and apartment complex to Ecco, an eagerly anticipated new restaurant opening soon on Main Street.

Other projects, such as the Residences at Main, located on the Westfield Trumbull mall property, will put future residents within walking distance of shopping and public transit. Disused office space will be converted to senior residences at 48 Monroe Tpke., also with easy pedestrian access to shopping and dining.

Trumbull is also looking into making the area around the Trumbull Center shopping center more pedestrian friendly, and the Board of Education plans to open a student-run bookstore and cafe later this year in the center.

First Selectman Vicki Tesoro and Economic Director Rina Bakalar have touted the economic benefits of these projects, from increased economic activity to additional tax revenue.

Here is a look at some of the projects underway, recently completed or under consideration in town.
