Developer seeks approval for apartments along New London’s waterfront

A developer is looking for approval to build 81 residential units and two commercial spaces on 150 Howard St., partially overlooking Shaw’s Cove. The Planning and Zoning Commission discussed the proposed four-story development on Thursday night with Matthew Greene, the attorney for developer Keystone Capital Corp. and property co-owners One-fifty Howard LLC and Nancy E. Wildes. According to city records, the owners purchased the property in 2017 for $1. In the Waterfront District Zone, Greene said building height restrictions are 25 feet but there are options for the commission to increase that under the special permit provided parking is under the structure. The Planning department did not receive comments from the Connecticut Department of Energy and Environmental Protection until Thursday. Barry Levine, chairman of the Planning and Zoning Commission, said the commission would need time to look over the multiple pages of the comments.
