More Plans Look to Make Brookfield’s ‘Four Corners’ a Destination
It's been a few years in the making and the new look is great, but will the "Four Corners" section of Brookfield ever become a downtown-type of destination for the Greater Danbury area?
Good news for Brookfield residents, according to an article at newstimes.com, coming soon to the four corners Mainstreet area will be a new Italian restaurant and some new shops. In the planning stages are a supermarket, a new medical building, and a senior living facility.
Two more Brookfield Village buildings are planned to attract more food-type shops, a salon along with other businesses. Currently, Brookfield Village already features housing on the second and third floors and an ice cream shop on the first floor.
Other proposed businesses include a Food Emporium and a Starbucks, which would be built across from Brookfield's Urgent Care. The long term goal of town officials is to turn the four corners area into what they call a "true" downtown with sidewalks and New England-style buildings. The Still River Greenway which was built in 2016 is already a major downtown attraction.
A plan to extend the streetscape to the Still River Greenway is being planned for this summer. What about the closed down Hearth Restaurant? The last I heard was that a new Dunkin Donuts might be moving to that location. What would you like to see at the Hearths old location?
