Judge sides with Greenwich in denying permit for 355-apartment development on former industrial lot

In 2016, Greenwich’s Inland Wetlands and Watercourses Agency denied a proposal to build a 355-unit apartment complex on West Putnam Avenue due to the 5-acre property’s industrial history, and this week a judge in Hartford dismissed an appeal from the developer Post Road Iron Works, Inc. Although the developer’s application did include provisions to clean contaminated soil, District Superior Court Judge Marshall Berger Jr. ruled that the developer’s application was incomplete and sided with the town. The wetlands agency chairman Brian Harris said his group “fully supports cleanup of the contaminated soil and even redevelopment” but that plans to protect nearby wetlands needed to be included. The Iron Works project has also been rejected by the Greenwich Planning and Zoning Commission. [FBJ]
