Developer hoping to build Newtown housing project seeks approval for fifth time

A developer that has submitted four proposals for a housing project in Newtown to no avail is hoping the fifth time’s the charm. The LLC 79 Church Hill Road had applied to build a 224-apartment, multi-building apartment complex called Hunters Ridge, but the proposal has been shot down four times by Newtown’s Water & Sewer Authority because the town would have to extend its sewer district, according to the Fairfield County Business Journal. Now, the developer hopes to build a six-story building with 141 rental apartments — 43 of which would be affordable. [FBJ]
