Case Studies

Town of Tolland – Tolland Village Retail Market Study

The town of Tolland was considering the potential for the Tolland Village Area, a land area off of exit 68 on Interstate 84 to the north. The Village Area was zoned for a mixed use area including the potential for residential units, a hotel, restaurants, and other retail. The town wanted to consider what the area’s market supported, and whether there was a unique value proposition, as well as what the potential could be as a result of The University of Connecticut’s recent mixed use expansions.
