Reliability &
Consistency

Norwalk has a AAA bond rating. There has been significant state and federal investment already made in these census tracts. Since 2010 there have been 14 large scale development projects in the OZ areas. This adds up to over 2 billion dollars of investment. And the investors are returning as we are continuing to see new development projects being discussed or already in planning.

Development
Friendly City

The City of Norwalk wants and needs development. We have developed and approved numerous plans that detail our approach for infrastructure and development. Planning and Zoning, City Council, The Mayor’s Office are all aligned for future growth.

Already In

The Opportunity is Now

While construction is under way across the city, there are still plenty of opportunities and parcels that require improvement.

Each of these urban census tracts have pockets of urban blight, economic distress and social challenges. The West Avenue Corridor and the Wall Street District still have a significant number of vacant storefronts and blighted properties – over 30% in some areas. There are many empty, industrial or completely underutilized parcels that could be developed independently or bundled together for more attractive investments. There are old industrial plants that will require decontamination and rehabilitation that will allow reuse of existing infrastructure. There has been much conversation about reopening an unused MetroNorth train station stop in downtown. We can help you navigate, discover, and invest in great developments within these exciting Opportunity Zones.
