81-Unit Housing Application Withdrawn; Aquarion Meeting Still On

You know that controversial plan to build 81 units of housing on the small parcel of land between Post Road West, Lincoln Street and Cross Street? The one that was going to draw a huge crowd to tonight’s Planning and Zoning Commission meeting?

It’s off the table — for now.

Cross Street LLC has withdrawn its site plan application. P&Z director Mary Young said it will be resubmitted. Public hearings will begin again September 6.

But there’s still plenty of action at Town Hall tonight. The P&Z meeting has been switched to Room 201/201A.

Moving into the auditorium — also at 7 p.m. — is a Public Utilities Regulatory Authority public hearing.

The topic: Aquarion’s proposal to build 2 large water tanks on North Avenue.

  1. Re that neck of the woods, have you seen what they did to the old house (one time liquor store) at corner of Rt 33 and Post Rd?

    I thought this was positioned by developer to be preservation of “historic” structure, but what they did was turn it into an aggressively modern building to appeal to today’s corporate tenant. Particularly galling is the metallic roof which reflects the afternoon sun and combines with the horrible Wright Street office buildings to make a downtown White Plains-style vista for those heading south on US-1!

    With these new apartment complexes (like the one on the Kowalski property) developers are finally achieving their long-term objective of turning Westport into a generic corporate center.
