New Construction in the Danbury Area

One thing that surpises people from outside of the Danbury area is that we are do not have large subdivisions of 75-500 + single family homes. One reason of we why don’t have those large communities is that there is not much large parcels on land to built on. Typically new devolpments in the area are about 2 dozen homes, but sometimes builders just buy vacant lots in established neighborhoods and put up some newer homes. Towns also limit the number of homes that can be built on land because of the impact the new homes will have on the school systems. The towns in the Greater Danbury area also like to have some of the land preserved as open space. More often that not, most homes are on about 1 acre( depending on zoning), which will limit the number that were built, under construction or proposed. Almost all properties do require septic & wells. One final thing about new construction is that most of the new construction communities in the Danbury area do not offer amenties, other than townhome communites.

New and newly construction communities include:

Ridgebury Hills (Danbury),Brookfield Crossing (Brookfield),Spring Ridge (Danbury),Tobin’s Court (Danbury),Rock Ridge (New Fairfield),Red Fox Crossing (New Fairfield),Tilson Woods (Newtown),White Oak Estates (Danbury),Fieldstone Estates (Danbury), Fieldstone Estates (New Milford) and Whispering Glen (Brookfield)


Old Ridgebury Road to be Widened

According to the Danbury Newstimes today (2/17/09), Old Ridgebury Road is going widened from two to four lanes from Larson Drive up the four way stop light intersection with Briar Ridge Road & Benson Road. The city just put the work up to bid until the middle of March. Residents living and working in the Ridgebury neighborhood will benefit tremendouslyy, because the road is very busy in the morning heading up the hill to the various office buildings & campus for Boehringer Ingelheim and going back toward the highway at night. It is nice to see the city invest in some infrastructure since they did allow for a lot of devolpment to occur in recent years including the Kensington Woods & Briar Woods townhome communities, Ridgebury Hills, the Willow Grove at Danbury apartments, as well as the Rivington development.

The Ridgebury neighborhood of Danbury is located in southwest Danbury along the Ridgefield border. Close to I-84, I-684 & several train stations, the Ridgebury neighborhood is great for communiting toward New York City & White Plains. Homes in the Ridgebury neighborhood are primarily ‘luxury’ townhomes built within the 10 years, newer single family homes built on about .25 acre lots as well as about 75 homes built in the 1960s on about an acre of land. The neighborhood is part of the Mill Ridge & Roger’s Park Middle School school system of Danbury. The area is flanked by exit 1 and 2 of I-84 to the north and the Ridgefield border to the South.
