BLT yanks North 7 plans over Norwalk P&Z requirement to bury power lines; ‘Economically not viable’

The fate of the North 7 development plan is unknown after Stamford developer Building and Land Technology yanked its application for a 266-unit mixed-use apartment building over a city requirement that developers bury the utility lines. “At this point, to underground the overhead utilities that currently exist would literally cost several million dollars, and by our consulting engineers’ estimate, it would take about a year to do it,” Waters said. Despite BLT’s claims, several P&Z Commission members said they believed this requirement is fair. Commissioners were shocked by the withdrawal of the application.
