The Residences at Quarry Walk, the luxury living section of Quarry Walk’s $70M mixed-use space in Oxford Connecticut, are moving full steam ahead. With 150 units planned, the project is developing in phases —76 units in the first phase and 74 units in the second.

After an accidental fire in July threatened to delay the project’s timeline, the development team consisting of QA+M Architects, RZ and Haynes Construction hustled to get the project back on the rails. “We jumped in with the team to rework the structural integrity of that section of the units,” says Christopher Zajda, PE, RZDA’s Principal in Charge for the structural engineering and design of the units. “It’s all about teamwork and handling the unexpected. Events happen but staying focused on the overall results is how we deal with adversity and I’m happy to be a part of a committed team,” he adds.

The residential units are designed to attract families looking for an all-inclusive option that offers a hub of necessities such as a medical office, grocery market, bank, pharmacy, variety of restaurants, community green post office and walking trails.

Destined to serve as Oxford’s town center, Quarry Walk – literally once a stone quarry – spans 30 acres and was created from extensive rock blasting and rock cut slopes. Retaining walls and additional design elements are made from upcycled blasted rock. (Images: QA+M Architects)
