Next phase of Ponemah Mill redevelopment approved in Norwich

The commission voted unanimously to approve the $40 million plan by New Jersey developer OneKey Inc. to create 146 apartments and a 3,879-square-foot restaurant or café following an online public hearing on the project Thursday. The vacant complex at 555 and 575 Norwich Ave. and Route 97 formerly housed Central Sports and Amazing Furniture. OneKey created the ownership name 555 & 575 South Mill LLC. The project calls for demolishing a small connector between the south mill and the next building in the mill complex at 539 Norwich Ave., not owned by the developers, to accommodate a driveway to the rear of the mill. Paul Breglio, managing member of NPB Assets CT, owner of 539 Norwich Ave., submitted a letter consenting to the proposed demolition.
