The Ridgefield, Conn., Planning and Zoning Commission approved a mixed-use overlay zone for a three-story building at 35 Old Quarry Road that will house apartments and self-storage. Developer Steve Zemo intends to reserve the ground level for Ridgefield Storage Center, which will comprise 10,000 square feet of climate-controlled storage space. Sixteen two-bedroom apartments will fill the top two floors, with five designated as affordable housing, according to the source. The project is scheduled to be complete this summer.
The development is expected to include a rooftop solar-panel system that will provide energy to all common areas. Energy-saving appliances will be installed in all apartments, the source reported.
“We are excited about taking our previously approved building and modifying the second floor for five affordable units and three market-rate units,” Zemo told the commission. “The affordable housing component coupled with the energy-efficient design, with solar panels providing the bulk of the common-area energy usage, gives us a socially responsible building we are proud to be developing.”
