UPDATE: Next for the Wrecking Ball in Old Greenwich 184 Shore Rd

Screen Shot 2016-03-15 at 7.01.02 PMUpdate: During a visit to the Building Dept at Greenwich Town Hall on Tuesday to ask about the demolition permit application for 184 Shore Rd, we learned that anyone objecting to the demolition on the grounds that the house is historic (60+ years old) has until April 22 to do so. An objection on historic grounds would trigger an additional 45-day waiting period before a demolition could proceed.

During a stop at the Planning & Zoning Dept counter, we learned that a coastal site plan for the property was approved on April 8, 2015. That plan, which is valid for 3 years, is for a new single family house, patio, driveway, steps, generator and retaining walls, plus related grading. (see rendering above)

The property sold on Dec. 22, 2015 from James and Caroline Stafford to Greenwich Shore Road LLC $1,600,000.


The CT Secretary of State’s website lists principals as Isolini P. Marcal  of 171 Cognewaugh Rd as Manager/Member, and Suzanne and Jason Woody of 21 Lake Drive in Riverside as principals.
