Asphalt, concrete being poured for new Shelton apartment complex

Fire hydrants and street drains also can be seen on the 13-acre property, where 228 apartments will be built.

The complex will include six residential buildings up to 60-feet in height, plus a clubhouse. There will be 457 parking spaces.

Being promoted as an “upscale” residential rental community, the property at 740 Bridgeport Ave. is between PerkinElmer and the Fairchild Heights mobile home community, backing up to Route 8.

A thin strip of land with a driveway will connect the complex to Bridgeport Avenue, just north of Planet Fitness and Bertucci’s restaurant.
