NORWALK, Conn. -- A developer will seek approval for a 700,000-square-foot shopping center at the 95/7 site in Norwalk, according to thehour.com. 

The site will be bordered by West Avenue, Interstate 95, the North Water Street extension and Metro-North Railroad's Danbury Line. Current plans call for five levels of construction with parking at and below grade, as well as three levels of retail space with further parking behind each level, thehour.com reported. 

The new shopping complex would be home to up to four anchor stores and as many as 100 smaller shops and restaurants. Plans also call for public plazas at the north and south ends of the structure, thehour.com said.

Totally agree with Ken P. Norwalk is in dire need of parks and open space, for practical reasons, as well as aesthetic ones. The development that goes on in this city is rampant, and random - with very little concern for how the environment looks or is kept. Another spot ripe for open space will be the old Manresa plant. The obvious caveat is that such a park would rely heavily on a strong sense of civic pride to help keep it up, something else Norwalk could use more of.

Better if it became a park to ease the burden on East Norwalk. Of course thats improvement not growth and our philosophy seems to be money money money, though any increase in revenue never equates relief for the taxpayers in the city. SONO DESPERATELY needs a decent sized park capable of being used for sports.

This is great news. Hopefully they will have fabulous fashion.
