1898 Queen Anne House & Former Service Station in Glenville Could Be Redeveloped

A pre-application filed with the Greenwich P&Z commission for a residential and commercial use building with moderate income apartment at 9 Glenville Street is on the P&Z agenda for Sept 28. (Meeting starts at 5:00pm)

The applicant is 9 Glenville Street LLC and the .4982-acre property features a Queen Anne style house in the LBR-2 Zone.

According to the Assessor’s office at Greenwich Town Hall the house dates back to 1858.

The property sold from Siegrun Pottgen sold to 9 Glenville Street LLC on March 10, 2021 for $1,150,000.

The applicant, 9 Glenville Street LLC (Joseph Granitto and Nicholas Granitto, principals) propose to demolish the existing house and garage, and construct a mixed-use retail and residential building.

According to the application filed at P&Z in town hall, it would be comprised of a first-floor retail space of 3,844 square feet.

Over that would be two floors of residential space with 6,515 square feet each for a total of 16,874 square feet.

There would be four apartments on each of the residential floors, for a total of eight units.

This application is being submitted under the revised section 6–110 of the regulations and one of the units will be dedicated as a moderate-income unit, aka “workforce housing.” (This is different from the state 8-30g affordable housing statute).

There would be nine underground parking spaces and 25 surface parking spaces, with two handicap spaces.

The 23,746 square-foot parcel is located in the LBR-2Zone.
