Proposal for 110 apartments off Greenwich Avenue would develop land that was called ‘underutilized’

A row of homes and businesses on Benedict Place and Benedict Court in central Greenwich would be demolished to make way for 110 residential units if a local developer gains permissions from the town. The latest application follows a surge of other proposals for central Greenwich that seek to encompass the state’s affordable housing law and build large-scale residential units. The Benedict Place application would set aside 30 percent of the units as “affordable,” gaining benefits in the approval process under the state’s 8-30g affordable housing regulation. The state’s affordable housing law has been under scrutiny in recent months, as a large number of 8-30g applications have been submitted in Greenwich. The proposal has not yet been scheduled for a preliminary review at Town Hall.
