Brookfield architect proposes apartment building in Newtown that will ‘exude high quality’

So it’s with special attention that Newtown leaders are weighing a proposal by a Brookfield architect to construct a three-story building with 27 apartments at South Main Street and Borough Lane. At a recent review of the blueprints by the town’s Design Advisory Board, the developer was grilled over details ranging from roof pitches, color palettes and siding materials to his overall design inspiration. The developer Robert Sherwood said he understood and agreed, noting that his designs are focused on giving the apartment building residential features “so it doesn’t look like a big box” and varying building materials “so that it doesn’t look like one big, massive structure.” First, Sherwood will need approvals from the town’s land use board. A public hearing about Sherwood’s proposal is scheduled for Thursday before Newtown’s Planning and Zoning Commission.
