The Planning and Zoning Commission in Greenwich will decide the fate of a plan to build a 52,000-square-foot apartment building on Sound Beach Avenue after hearing final arguments this week. The 60-unit building’s developers, 143 Sound Beach Associates, believe that the 18 affordable housing units included in the plan will aid in its approval since Connecticut law makes it difficult to deny permits to projects that include affordable housing if less than 10 percent of the city’s housing is affordable. Greenwich falls well below that mark. Residents object to the plan because of a potential increase in traffic and a lack of parking. The proposal only offers 47 parking spaces, Greenwich Time reported. [Greenwich Time]
