A Stamford developer is curbing his ambitions for a large mixed-use development on West Main Street after months of pushback from neighbors.

A lawyer for landlord Frank Steinegger said his client will trim the number of apartments in his proposal to redevelop several commercial and residential buildings he owns along the West Side shopping district, the Stamford Advocate reported.

The original plan could have allowed apartment buildings up to five stories and ground-floor retail in the highly trafficked area.

Neighbors voiced the usual concerns about how the development could change the neighborhood, worsen traffic and make it harder to park.

Land Use Bureau Chief Ralph Blessing told the zoning board that Steinegger is “working on a revision of plans that would reduce the number of [residential units]” and potentially withdrawing a requested zoning change for West Main Street, which could have allowed for more dense development on other properties as well.
