I've been noticing the progress on the new apartment buildings by the water in Shelton on Canal Street. They are HUGE.

Anyone have any info on them? Any links? Couldn't find anything via Google.

It will certainly be good for downtown Shelton, and even downtown Derby to some extent.

They're going to be an Avalon property (Avalon Shelton - Radcliff Park). They actually look really nice and the location couldn't be more perfect. Walkable to everything in downtown Shelton and downtown Derby.

Hundreds of new apartments coming to Shelton - Connecticut Post

Jaber said the garage is at the center of the five-story complex, which will house one- and two-bedroom units, ranging in size from 700 to 1,400 square feet. The rents will range from $1,300 to $2,000 per month, depending on the size of the unit, he said.

It's exactly what these old mill areas need!

I agree, although they are a little pricey when you can get a similarly sized apartment in a downtown 3 family house for half the price. I'm wondering how fast they'll fill up.

Avalon's image is generally positive; nice apartment living but at a pricey cost. They do a great job at maintaining nice-looking facilities when you tour the complex. I used to live in one (Avalon Stamford), and although nice, you do end up seeing how corners are cut (e.g. absurdly loud washer/dryer that annoys neighbors, loud dishwasher that doesn't clean properly, improperly cut floorboards behind doors, paper-thin walls, etc.) -- things that you don't immediately notice on a tour.

That said, Avalon Shelton will still help boost the run-down image of that area. It'll also appeal to the already young crowd that frequents downtown Shelton (e.g. Danny O's, Porky's, Caliente), as well as the young professional population working in the nearby R.D. Scinto office complexes on Bridgeport Avenue. This is absolutely a win-win scenario for Shelton.
