Located in Bridgeport’s East End on the site of the former Father Panik Village, Crescent Crossings is a new pedestrian-friendly, transit-oriented development. It is directly adjacent to the proposed new Barnum transit station and is within a quarter mile of a bus line, adjacent to Water View Park, one mile from a Metro North Station and just minutes from Bridgeport’s downtown. The various wood frame constructed buildings with brick and clapboard siding are inspired by traditional materials. Gable roofs, front porches, and bay windows are modern interpretations of those found on many historic Bridgeport houses. The buildings are oriented toward the street and many units will have individual entrances at street level and private backyards with a central semi-public recreational courtyard. The project has achieved LEED Platinum Home Certification and has been awarded the 2017 Residential Award of Honor form the CTGBC.
The finishes selected for Crescent Crossings were chosen for their modern, warm feel, appealing to all ages. Tones of blue and gray are accented with natural wood, brushed nickel hardware, and granite counters. Nautical-inspired paintings and accessories are evocative of the ocean, which once supported life in Bridgeport. The entries feature decorative wood soffits to break up the long hallway and create an inviting atmosphere. The large windows allow an abundance of natural light to flood the interiors, connecting the units with the beautifully-designed landscape.
Amenities are numerous and contribute to residents’ high-quality of life. Desirable features include a fitness center, bike storage, computer lounge, group activity rooms, and community space complete with a kitchenette.
