Just How Big is the Proposed Office?


Just How Big is The Proposed Office?

It's huge, coming in at 9,200 square feet. Moreover, due to its spread-out design, it actually occupies a site much larger than that. "Corner to corner to corner to corner," it occupies a building plot 147 feet wide and 86 feet deep - or 12,350 square feet total. That's not a whole lot smaller than, for example, the Shaw's (Grand Union) store on Pine Street in New Canaan.

For the sake of argument, though, we'll stick with the 9,200 square feet of interior space. Just how big is that? Use this handy guide as a reference.
