Residents can expect development at several Washington Avenue locations in 2023, according to Freda. The sites Freda is eyeing include properties on the north and south side of the driveway entrance to Amazon’s campus and a four-acre lot across from the North Haven fairgrounds. “On the northside (of the Amazon driveway), we will be looking for a retail plaza there, with stores and perhaps a restaurant,” he said. “On the south side, you know, there’s a variety of different opportunities that I can’t really share.” Several construction projects are already underway in the area. Connex Credit Union, which currently has a location at 412 Washington Avenue, is building a new headquarters on an adjacent lot. In addition to the housing developments, a number of new businesses opened on Washington Avenue in 2022.
