Last night the Planning and Zoning Board held a public hearing regarding a developer's bid to construct 257 units of affordable housing on Bic Drive.
Here is the information from the agenda.
460 BIC DRIVE (ZONE OD) Acceptance of an application under Milford Zoning Regulations, Sec. 22.214.171.124, for an Affordable Housing Complex (257 units), on Map 41, Block 301, parcel 29, of which Garden Homes Residential , LP, is the owner.
This is what I've written about the project.
Garden Homes Management, of Stamford, has proposed 257-units along Bic Drive.
Of the 257 units, 82 are considered affordable. The company is planning a 53,617 square-foot “H” type building, which would feature about 60 studio apartments and 190 one-bedroom units.
The size of the units range from 500 square-feet for a studio and up to 750 square-feet for a one bedroom unit. Rents would range from $845 to $1,150 a month. The company hopes to construct the project in 2016.
The development is proposed for 460 Bic Drive, which abuts the Bic Corp. office site and is adjacent to Subway’s World Headquarters and the Caswell Cove Condominium Complex.
The site is currently farmland and includes an existing house. Garden Homes Management Owner Richard Freedman has said in an email to Milford Now that “the site is highly appropriate for the proposed use.”
