12 new residential apartments, convenience store and fueling station coming to Hamden


Hamden, Conn – A new development, including 12 residential apartments, a convenience store and a fueling station will be coming soon to Hamden, according to Hamden Mayor Lauren Garrett. 


The 20,000-square foot development located at 3311 Whitney Avenue will take up five lots that Quinnipiac University previously owned. In addition, it is being built right next door to Dickermans, a popular nighttime spot for students.


“I definitely do see the benefit,” public relations graduate student Sydney Handler said. “I think it will help in the long run for both Quinnipiac students and the Hamden community.”


The new gas station will include six gas pumps and four EV charging stations; allowing it to serve thirty thousand cars that travel along Route 10 daily. 


This complex, called Noble Energy, will also become the first gas station, EV station and convenience store site on the northbound side of Whitney Avenue between the Route 40 connector and the Cheshire town line. 


“It was important to make it a little safer by not having to turn left to go to the gas station,” Garrett said. “So this alleviates any kind of dangerous turns that would be made.” 


Garrett welcomed the new company, Noble Energy to Hamden in a press conference on July 20, noting that the addition will also affect Quinnipiac students. 


“Hamden residents, including many Quinnipiac students, are increasingly using electric vehicles. This project will help meet this demand,” Garrett said. 


On June 4 of this year, the Hamden’s Planning and Zoning Commission unanimously approved the site plan, along with certain conditions. 


Those conditions include: 

  • Accommodating the Hamden zoning requirement that says 20 percent of the units be affordable at or below 60 and 80 percent of area median income.
  • Showing amenity space on the site plan.
  • Adding a sidewalk detail.
  • Posting signs for tenants’ private parking areas.

Noble Energy is a Connecticut-based family business run by Frisbie and co-owner Abdul Tammo.  


“We are very excited to break ground today on our latest project here in Hamden, CT,” Frisbie said. “…Noble is setting the bar for high-end fueling facilities, including fast charging for electric vehicles, retail food offerings, and in this case, residential units that will compliment the neighborhood and provide great services for the community.”

The apartments that will be above the convenient store have an affordable housing component that will not be left aside for Quinnipiac students.
