Audubon Court encloses a group of townhouse condominiums and apartments above ground floor commercial space. The court has a central green, one of the two interior courtyards in the Arts Center District master plan that replicates Yale University’s nearby quadrangles, providing both community and security for urban living.
All townhouse front doors face the green, a quiet, open space that serves as an “outdoor living room,” while street level storefronts accommodate retail shops open to the public. Through its gabled brick facades, it continues the vernacular urban residential character of the existing neighborhood.
A 70-car garage located at grade level provides parking for residents, and an adjacent five-story parking garage serves the whole Arts Center area.
