WESTPORT, Conn. -- A plan to build a six-story apartment complex came to a halt last week when the Westport Planning and Zoning Commission unanimously denied the application, according to the Westport News.
The building, set to be constructed on the banks of Saugatuck River, was denied due to staunch public opposition and environmental concerns, among other items, the Westport News reported. The company behind the project, Garden Homes Management, indicated that they would pursue a legal challenge within the next couple of week following the denial, said the Westport News.
The project would have include a 48-unit, 45,7967-square-foot complex on Wilton Road, and would also have had 15 units considered affordable housing under state guidelines. The commission's final denial also came after the company refused to allow an extension for the commission to study issues related to the project, added the Westport News.
