Rockview Housing Development

A sloping hill provides dramatic views from all homes at the new Rockview neighborhood

The Rockview neighborhood is located in the northwest corner of New Haven, Connecticut, near the town of Hamden. West Rock Ridge State Park and Southern Connecticut State University (SCSU) are prominent local landmarks. 

The former Rockview development, managed by the Housing Authority of New Haven, consisted of brick “barrack-style” buildings which were demolished ten years prior to our firm being retained. The sloping topography of the area created a challenge. The former street infrastructure did not lend itself to a safe, walkable neighborhood and the development was enclosed with a 12-foot high fence, segregating it from the adjacent Town of Hamden.
