Florence Virtue Homes PDU 200 Goffe Street

A housing development built in 1963 as part of the Dixwell Redevelopment project. Although the architecture of the attached homes is interesting, their relationship to the street falls short of what is expected of a fairly dense central neighborhood located on a mass transit bus line. The placement of parking, lack of shade trees and the width of Goffe Street all deter pedestrian usage of the area. Some of the design elements, which may have been issues addressed in site plan, failed to materialize at street level and leave one to wonder how to use much of the space in the neighborhood.
