An elevator will serve upper floors, and there are 27 handicap accessible units. Ample parking is available for tenants. Clinton Commons promises to be a cornerstone development for the ongoing revitalization efforts on the West Side.

According to POKO Partners President Ken Olson, “as Bridgeport continues to seek to revitalize itself through a bold Master Plan, there are crucial aspects of the City’s dynamic that are needed
affirmative action/equal opportunity employer before the revitalization vision can fully take hold. There is little doubt that Bridgeport has a critical gap between the demand for and the supply of quality affordable housing with a supportive services component. High quality affordable housing along with supportive services is a priority for this region and we believe that Clinton Commons Apartments will satisfy just this need.”
