The Ridgefield Board of Selectmen has voted against selling off another part of the former Schlumberger property, which the town purchased in 2012. The Newstimes reports that the Board voted Wednesday 4 to 1 not to sell an acre of land to Charter Group Partners, which previously bought 9.8 acres.
The developer wanted to add 6 more townhouse units to the age-restricted project now underway because the completed units have all been sold. Charter Group is building 9 townhouse units and 45 apartment-style “coach homes”.
Ridgefield bought to 45 acre site for $7 million and recovered $5.55 million through the sale of the Charter group plot and another 5 acre parcel. An assisted-living facility and mixed-use apartment building will be in development soon there.
Luxury furniture and design firm BassamFellows is leasing the Philip Johnson building. The auditorium was leased by local theater group, ACT.
