A zoning change has been approved for a former cinema property in Stonington, Connecticut.

The new Neighborhood Design District “floating zone” will allow developer READCO to develop the 18-acre parcel with four buildings containing 124 multifamily residential apartments, 10,000 square feet of commercial space, and 30,000 square feet of recreational facilities.

Bohler’s West Hartford team prepared an aquifer and groundwater protection plan for the site, modeling the plan using hydrocad software and rainfall data. The project will incorporate “low impact development” natural methods — rain gardens, swales, remediation basins — that will connect to the site’s existing stormwater management infrastructure, including two underground detention ponds.

With support from the Build4CT, a Connecticut Housing Finance Authority workforce housing program, the project could contain 25 affordable units.
