Developer submits revised mixed-use proposal for Five Corners in Groton City

A developer, GBU Capital LLC. of Scottsdale, Ariz., has submitted a revised application for a mixed-use design district “floating zone” on the site at the corner of Benham and Poquonnock Roads, after the city’s Planning and Zoning Commission denied in a 4-3 vote last May the developer’s previous application. City of Groton Mayor Keith Hedrick said the city listened to residents who spoke at the public hearing last spring, and the developer changed the building design and increased the commercial space on the first floor. He said the proposal would help the city address several issues, from housing to parking, associated with the planned expansion of Electric Boat. Seamus Moran, project manager with Loureiro Engineering Associates, said in the application that the project would help the city create a sense of place in the Five Corners area, a top priority in the city’s Plan of Conservation and Development.
