Newington, CT – Affirming its commitment to delivering affordable housing to Connecticut, Dakota Partners recently closed on Cedar Pointe, Phase 1 in Newington, its ninth project in the state. Upon completion of all phases, the new apartment community will contain a mix of income restricted and market rate units.
Cedar Pointe consists of 108 units of multifamily housing, which will be constructed in two separate phases. In Phase 1, Dakota will construct 72 units within two, 3-story garden style buildings and a community building. The units will consist of one and two-bedroom apartments built to Passive House standards.
Residents will enjoy several benefits from Passive House-living, including savings in monthly utility bills from reduced energy use, high indoor air quality, and a sound-proof home due to air tightness insulation. Phase 2 of construction is expected to begin by early 2023 under separate financing and will provide an additional 36-unit residential building.
The property is listed on the Connecticut Brownfield; all environmental contaminants will be mitigated before the apartments are built. All original buildings have been demolished and the site is currently vacant and ready for development.
Since 2014, Dakota Partners has been collaborating with Connecticut to create safe, vibrant, and affordable housing for residents all over the state from Hartford to New Milford, Suffield, and Griswold.
