A top commercial real estate developer predicts an influx of young home buyers — but only if we play our cards right.
DANBURY, CT — The popular, and more often than not, angry, opinion about living in the greater Danbury area is that everyone is fleeing for lower taxed pastures.
Jim Fagan, senior managing director at Cushman & Wakefield, one of the world's largest commercial real estate businesses with properties throughout southwestern Connecticut, has a different perspective. He believes that the generation of millennials that moved away to college and never returned to their roots is about to make a big comeback. They're getting older, and the allure of Brooklyn and Boston has begun to dim.
"There's probably no place better to raise your kids than Westchester or Fairfield counties. You have four seasons, you're close to Manhattan, you have the Long Island Sound, you can go skiing in a couple of hours, a great public schools system, all these wonderful things. Where would you rather raise a family?" Fagan said. "The economics dictate you come out and find some places that are a little less expensive to live, and also have great public schools, a little bit more space to live."
Although the geography and the lower costs are attractive to the former big-city-dwellers, Fagan says many of the towns are going to need to alter their mindset if they hope to lure millennials back home.

**Project Update: **
The Danbury High School Construction Project Addition, (Danbury Freshman Academy High School) has been completed and its Ribbon Cutting Ceremony was held August 2018.
The Danbury High School Construction Project Addition cost was $50 million dollars, and approximately 64,000 square feet, including three floors, adding 26 classrooms, a new gymnasium and a 9,000 square foot Performing Arts Building.
New tennis courts constructed at Danbury High School are manufactured with "post tension concrete". This type of concrete construction lengthens the life of concrete by pre-stressing the concrete with lineal cables running through the slab in a grid pattern. By adding tension to these cables, it make the concrete stronger, extending its life and reduces cracking.
The Reservoir Street Culvert Replacement project was the full replacement of a culvert which reached the end of its useful life span. The culvert dissects Reservoir Street in the south portion of Danbury near the Bethel town line. The box culvert was completed ahead of schedule and within budget. This is a heavily traveled roadway with over 2000 trips per day and is a vital artery connecting the two municipalities. In addition to the culvert replacement, the roadway area has been widened at the intersection. Reservoir Road has been improved with resurfacing throughout the roadway.
