This week 103 Mason Street LLC, submitted a pre-application to Greenwich’s Planning & Zoning Dept to redevelop 103 Mason Street, at the corner of Lewis Street, for residential use.
The proposal is to demolish the office building, previously home to Computer SuperCenter, and build a three-story residential building with 7 units.
There would be two 2-bedroom apartments, one of which would be dedicated as affordable housing, plus five 3-bedroom apartments.
There would be a total of 19 bedrooms and 24 parking spaces plus one ADA space.
There would be a total of 19 bedrooms and 24 parking spaces plus one ADA space. Of those, 14 would be underground and 10 would be surface parking spaces.
The property is in the Commercial (CGB) Central Greenwich Business zone, and is on .4721 acres.
For years the building was home to the Computer SuperCenter. Owner Brian Desrosier was ahead of his time when he began offering computer sales and repairs in 1984. Initially the building’s ground floor was dedicated to retail sales of computers and printers. But when sales moved online the business changed its model to focus on repairs. Sadly, the business recently close and the building has sat empty.
Per the application, the property owner is 103 Mason Street LLC, which is registered to Mr. Derosier.
The proposed residential building would meet the height and floor area limitations set forth and 6-110, which is the town’s moderate income housing regulation.
The existing office building is 7,036 sq ft and was constructed in 1960.
The proposed building would be 15,369 sq ft.
The application has yet to be scheduled for a P&Z agenda. Stay tuned.
