About CityCenter Danbury

Promoting and Revitalizing Danbury's Historic Downtown

Welcome to CityCenter Danbury,

Since 1989 the Danbury Downtown Special Services District has been committed to enhancing the quality of life and economic vitality of CityCenter Danbury.   But just what is a Special Services District?  The term itself seems quite ambiguous.  The real way to describe our Special Services district is that we are a collection of property owners who have committed time and money to promote our downtown.  We are people first, who strongly believe in our merchants, residents and visitors to our City core. 

We are now at a tipping point and true momentum has come to CityCenter.  Rents are extremely affordable and economic opportunities abound.  Work will begin this Fall on the Kennedy Place Project which represents a 70 million dollar investment into our downtown bringing with it 365 market rate apartments.  Kennedy Park, home of our Farmers' Market, has been transformed into a peaceful oasis.  The Palace Theater and the Heirloom Arts Theater are bringing premium entertainment to our urban core.  The Danbury Whalers are playing great pro-hockey and Blood, Sweat and Tears with Bo Bice will be rocking the Greater Taste of Danbury.  Our downtown is accessible by train, bus and convenient to Interstate 84.  We have restaurants, shops, nightlife and museums.  Western Connecticut State University, Naugatuck Valley Community College and the Paul Mitchell School all right here. 

Part of our plan has always been a commitment to arts and culture that celebrates the diversity of our downtown.  It's important to understand that there is no budget for our Summer Concert Series.  We are extremely grateful to all our sponsors, especially Union Savings Bank, who help to make it possible.  Lastly, we would like to thank you for coming down and supporting our Summer Concert Series.

So sit back, enjoy the show and all that CityCenter has to offer.


We welcome you and look forward to your return!
